The paperback of this book has been is a fantastic read. This format is good, if you want to revisit the chapters.
The pace of the narration is a bit odd, it's not quite a story but more a series of do's and don'ts. So it's a bit weird to listen to.
I enjoyed listening and reading this book. I have it on my kindle and audible. It didn't sync, but I didn't care. (Different editions)
I'm having my staff read because everyone should know how to be civil. Forni explains this in a easy to understand manner. Including the 'what's in it for me'.
A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!
The information in this book is good, but I think it might be a better read than a listen. From the narration it seems that the actual book might be one of lists, highlighted boxes, and standard texts. This did not translate well into an audio book. I did finish the book, but am contemplating on getting a print version as reference and to skim over to see what I "lost in translation."
I wish this book was mandatory reading for high schoolers
rudeness seems to be fashionable these days
