    You can go after the job you want...and get it! You can take the job you have...and improve it! You can take any situation you're in...and make it work for you!

    Overall

    This is the worst book I've ever heard. Let me sum up the entire book: "Find out what the other person wants."

    That's it. Now imagine hearing 50 different examples of cases when something went right because someone followed that idea. That's the whole book.

    Mr. Carnegie presents anecdotes as evidence. This is sin enough to not believe anything he says. Furthermore, the anecdotes always have some glorious ending.

    Bob found out what his boss wanted, saw things from his point of view, and was made partner.

    Steve was nice to his girlfriend's grandmother, so she gave him a brand new car.


    And on and on and on and on and on and on. Unbelievable examples and unnecessary repetition. Again, try to see things from the other person's point of view and find out what they want. It's a one sentence book.

    The words you use say a lot about you. Some words say that you are smart, eloquent, or persuasive. Others say that, uh, you don't know what you're talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from your mind and making a lasting impression. Word Smart will help you learn the words you absolutely need to know!

    Pei Lin says: "Good, effective, but without attachment"
    "Gets the job done."
    Overall

    Not very engaging, but by no means a waste. I feel I got something out of it, though I feel I could have been given more.

    Robert McKee's screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress, and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese, and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni. Writers, producers, development executives, and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience.

    Steve says: "Good abridged version"
    "Inspiring"
    Overall

    Mr. McKee is detailed about what works and blunt about what doesn't; no beating around the bush.

    This book is precisely what it claims to be.
