    "I was very disappointed .. A prelude"

    I was really disappointed, it was more of a summary of what he will discuss if you attended a seminar. Lots of one liner on a bunch of topics. I wouldn't buy another title of this kind.

    "Art of Persuasion is Communication"
    Where does Communication and the Art of Persuasion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's Jim Rohn, if you have listened to any of his presentations - then you already know it's going to be a transformational source of knowledge and therefore among the top 5 of my fave audiobooks.


    What other book might you compare Communication and the Art of Persuasion to and why?

    The Art of War, both books address communication and persuasion in order to achieve goals....


    What does Jim Rohn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His skill at making a presentation personal, something that cannot be achieved when reading...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "useless, irrelevant to the topic"
    Any additional comments?

    This reminded me a religious figure talking about his ideas in Church rather than the book than I was hoping to get about "Persuasion" It was irrelevant to the topic and misleading ...

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If it was an actual audio book and not a recorded seminar. Don't waste your time


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jim Rohn again?

    Not likely


    How could the performance have been better?

    Story
    "Utter gibberish"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is supposed to be a book about the art of communication. Mr Rohn simply rants in abstract terms. He should have:
    1. Structured the material better
    2. Given clear examples with "how to" instructions.


    Has Communication and the Art of Persuasion put you off other books in this genre?

    Yes, a bit. Fortunately I first listened to "how to win friends and influence people", so I know there are good books out there.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Rohn?

    No one, he is an excellent narrator, with passion, and varied energy and pace. It's simply low grade content that no one could have saved.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Confusion at first, then contempt, then disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Just saying "do this", "don't do that" and using generic examples is a rant, not an education.
