      "Persuasion?"

      Good book generally speaking, however deals more with developing strong character and skills for success in life, rather than dealing with the actual topic of persuasion. Having read a number of books on self development this one seemed to be quite weak. If you are looking for some solid persuasion techniques, this book will not provide them.

      "Boring"

      Boring. The book does not capture your interest and you can't wait to put it down. I switched to listen to something else.

      "Painful to listen to."

      This audio book is painful to listen to. The narration is professional, but there is no life to it and the writing is dry like the desert.

      There may be some excellent ideas here, but its too dry to get through.

      "good in places"

      I must say I quite enjoyed this book. The reading style is a bit stilted, and some of the humour falls flat. There is also a tendency to state the obvious. However, on balance, there are enough gems of wisdom to make it worthwhile.
      This book is more about changing yourself than about changing others. Its about how to become a persuasive person rather than about how to persuade. If you can afford it "Success Mastery Academy", by Brian Tracy is much more comprehensive and an easer listen, and you get both for one credit if you are a member. Having said that I am still glad I listened to this book and I would recommend it.
