I purchased this book because of its high rating, so I feel compelled to comment.
I began listening with great interest and enjoyment as Wayne explained what seemed good logic about personal healing. Then, about half way through the presentation, I was totally surprised when Christiane started presenting a sexually focused discussion that was laced with condemnation of circumcision.
I don't understand why these two topics were put together and her content makes his seem questionable.
It was very enlightening and enjoyable to read. I found it full of common sense and wit. I gave a copy to each of my adult children for Christmas. Well worth your time if you want to improve or just better understand how males and females perceive the world. If taken to heart, it will undoubtedly improve your understanding and empathy for your spouse, your co-workers, and anyone else you communicate with.
For years, I have been frustrated at the Federal Court's handling of cases that seem to go against what our founding fathers obviously intended. This book opened my eyes to a history of the federal judiciary ignoring our Constitution while at the same time claiming to uphold it.
I use quotes from this book regularly. I checked it out from the library and decided I wanted it in my own library so I purchased it.
The insight and illumination of common but missed facts helps me to improve myself while I better support and encourage others.
Full of useful management level advice. Solid advice for being a better team or for that matter a better co-worker.
This book is a must read for anyone who wants to improve their impact in the work place. Whether you are a supervisor, subordinate or co-worker and no matter where you are on your career ladder you should invest time in this book.
It starts off bashing the book called "Blink" but once he gets beyond that waste of time he covers some very useful and relevant issues. His centeral theme provides the reader with a good basis for promoting the use of Critical Thinking and an understanding of why not to use the first gut reaction that comes by.
I found it to be very easy to listen to.
I have listened to this book multiple times. I gave it to each of my children for christmas. I have encouraged my co-workers and even the chaplain to not only read it but start a study group using it as a base. The information contained is not 100 percent perfect as there are terms that seemed to disagree with what I understood them to mean but they are infrequent.
The principles he chanpions and the methods suggested are right on the money!
I suggest you also get the paperback version as it is cheap and you will want to make notes.
The author does an exceptional job of reading his matereial. The listener can feel the emotion and emphasis the author intended as he not only reads the book but adjusts things enough so that you can visualize the diagrams as he reads.
It is so much more interesting listening to it then it ever could possibly have been reading it.
