    "Fun"
    Overall

    This was a fun book that made me laugh. Don't know that I agree with the author but it was meant to be tongue-in-cheek I think.

    Cialdini provides fascinating insight into how people avoid the work of making decisions and why they comply with requests in business settings. He has identified six principles which are so powerful that they generate desirable change in the widest range of circumstances.

    "Meandering"
    Overall

    There are some important points made in this audiobook, particularly in the summary, but it takes awhile to get to the good parts. I found myself lost and confused more than once.

    This audiobook is a series of thoughts and ideas. I found myself constantly wanting to pause the book so I good think a little longer on the thought just presented. I will listen to this over and over again.

  • The 4 Disciplines of Execution

    In business, survival depends on meeting objectives. Most failures in organizations today are not the result of a lack of smarts; they are caused by a lack of execution. Things just don't get done. Defining a clear strategy and meeting those goals is one thing. Sticking to strategy and meeting those goals is quite another. The 4 Disciplines of Execution teaches how to focus on your top priorities and get the critical things accomplished.

    Charles says: "Good, but lacking in materials"
    "Rich resource"
    Overall

    I loved this book. Different narrators made it easy to follow and there were tools I could apply immediately. I will want to listen to this several times and I will probably buy the actual book.
