Sure the stories are plan and ordinary and YES Chekhov certainly knows how to word paint most excellently, but in the end I find the works empty; not as rich as works written from the Romantic school. After listening, it left me saying "what's the point"?
Just finished the audiobook “Why Should Extroverts Make All the Money?”. It was a little repetitive but it was worth going through. The author talked of the networked world we live in and the importance of building connections and managing your own career. In many ways, through the examples, the book was geared to those starting their own businesses and in particularly consultancies. Yet, it is useful for just about anyone who has introverted tendencies. I’d give in 3 out of 5 stars. Would have given it 4 out of 5 but I felt it was 1-2 hours too long. Hours 4-5 in the audiobook were the best.
Don't believe anyone who says this book is deep. It does give you something to think about however. The principles might (but also might not) be good to role around in your subconscious when doing business strategy. Most likely, the book will educate you a little more on some basic philosophies of chess... perhaps not so much business.
The author walked through a history of the modern Marketing profession in a rather dry manner. Perhaps there was some good things in the book... but it was too much (boring and "duh" for those already in the profession)... I didn't finish the book. Perhaps a shorter Abridged version would have been good.
The author talk of how a relationship is a place where you find healing from your past [childhood]. Very interesting points and some things were enlightening, however the authors only cover part of the realm of topics that make for a good relationship and I'm not convinced that they truly spelled out how to "Receive Love". Worth a listen however.
This is one of th most significant books I've ever read. But you must have time on your hands. At 30+ hours for all volumes, it's a big one!
I have never heard anything of Brian Tracy that I have not loved.
You can't listen to it just once. There's just too much there. He presents the material in a simple, practical, and yet deep way that you can both act on and listen to over and over again; catching more each time.
He is my current favorite in this genre; master of Psychology and Self Improvement.
I got something out of the content as it offers some ideas/techniques and concepts for finding the "center" for your reality. I'm not into some of the spiritual aspects that the author believes (spiritual reading for instance); yet there were some things to take out of the material.
I agree with some of the other reviews; this lecture could have used visuals (or the lecturer could have more clearly used words to laying the discussed "archetypes"). In the end I felt like, because in particular the archetypes described were not clearly laid out, that it was an infomercial for the author's books. In that respect, I was disappointed. I feel that the material should have been more clearly laid out in the lecture format and if we like the content enough, we'd be drawn to further content (in the author's books).
There was something to be gained from the material, but I can't help but thing there are better things out there that are better as a stand alone product.
I agree with one of the reviews that spoke of inaccuracies in how the NSA probably works in reality. Yet, I found it fun - a good listen.
These classics are that for a reason. I found the thought provoking content behind the plot substantial; must listens when you get a chance.
