"Profound...engaging...packed with insight. I couldn't recommend it more highly." (Stephen R. Covey)
Yes! I love the message that it delivers
There isn't one.
Yes. I thought he did a great job narrating!
Yes, I would have if I could have.
This book is a great book for anybody trying to find a balance in there life.
It was an easy listen. I really enjoyed the performance as well as the story.
The story was very applicable to life at work, at home or any situation.
He created characters with voices that might not be there if I read it.
It was something that is kind of a page turner.I could listen all at one sitting if I had the time to do so. Most of the time I don't.
I didn't feel like the ending really put a bow on the topic. I didn't really feel equipped to use any of the stuff talked about in the book. It was too abstract for me to apply in a practical way.
Good, versatile, engaging
My wife read this book and thought it was awesome. I however, just didn't really get it. It seemed to leave you hanging at the end and I didn't find much that I could apply. The in-the-box and out-of-the-box dialog almost seemed silly to me at times.
Even if you do not change, this book will allow you to see your life and especially your relationships differently. It is a game changer
Patrick Lencioni's books, which also use parables to reveal simple truths.
The luxury of being read to while running and / or driving. I listened to the book, then read it.
The clear and simple explanation of the destructive power of self-deception.
Although I was reluctant to pick up yet another book on leadership, this one came highly recommended by my manager and was well worth the listen. Told as a story instead of a step-by-step how-to, the message comes through and really makes you think about how you can genuinely lead by example in your organization.
Very good book. Anyone who owns their own business and anyone who values personal relationships should read this book.
This is so simple, yet so profound. This book really spoke to me and helped me see my leadership flaws, especially in relating to people. I saw applications for my relationship with my wife and my children. It really was enlightening and I appreciate a co-worker recommenting it to me. The book was told in story form and the reader did an excellent job voicing the different characters.
In a very entertaining way, this audiobook exposes relevant values in how to make our lives more fulfilling. I recommend it.
I enjoyed this book as the material was thought provoking and can be applied in our daily interactions with those close to us. I only gave it three stars as the person reading the book played many different characters with very poor voice imitations, so it lost some credibility. But overall, it was a good listen and I might even listen again as there is some great insight into our behaviors that can be very helpful
