    Ask a member of the middle class what it takes to become wealthy, and she'll tell you it takes a bold new idea. Tell that to a self-made millionaire, and he'll vehemently disagree. What explains the difference in mind-set between the self-made wealthy and the rest of us? It's not what you think, as journalist and entrepreneur Lewis Schiff convincingly illustrates through groundbreaking research and compelling storytelling.

    Story

    All through the book the author punctuates the points with a bit of research they have conducted about the difference between what the middle class think and what self-made millionaires think. This is interesting because I found myself agreeing withe the middle class view (which I am) but I understand I am wrong about many things. The book gently points out you are mistaken and teaches you why and then what to do about it.

    Getting to Yes is a straightorward, universally applicable method for negotiating personal and professional disputes without getting taken - and without getting angry. It offers a concise, step-by-step, proven strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict - whether it involves parents and children, neighbors, bosses and employees, customers or corporations, tenants or diplomats.

    What did you love best about Getting to Yes?

    The alternative options for getting to yes are excellent. They punctuate the theory with timely examples of how to actually use the concept in both big corporate and smaller at-home examples of negotiation situations.

    In this, his first audiobook, Tony Hsieh - the widely admired CEO of Zappos, the online shoe retailer -explains how he created a unique culture and commitment to service that aims to improve the lives of its employees, customers, vendors, and backers. Using anecdotes and stories from his own life experiences, and from other companies, Hsieh provides concrete ways that companies can achieve unprecedented success.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great insight into the mind and life of a guy who has made a lot of money doing what many people hope - selling their business to a big company. I found the insight about how money doesn't buy happiness really valuable and think it's worth hearing and adding to your thinking.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the honesty about what was happening at each stage for these guys. The openness about making money, risking it all, and being happy no matter which way the deal goes was good to hear.


    Have you listened to any of Tony Hsieh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't heard him speak before. But I do listen to a lot of audio books and his performance was easy, calm, and fluid. Very easy listen.
