Re record by a more enthusiastic and energetic voice.
Hire a professional narrator.
Nothing. Total waste of money.
The one that sounds like he has no energy to breath and speak.
Audio books with reference materials should provide a web link with a printable related pages.
No, I would rather buy the paperback and read it myself. The content is excellent.
Richard Dawkins or the narrator reading chapter one. The other of the narrators sounded like he was lying on his death bed when the narration was recorded.
I wouldn't, I'd recommend other books like How to Win Friends and Influence People
The book is narrated by the authors, while both were boring... one was so boring and monotone that it just completely ruined the book.
The authors cover many very good and important questions, that one tends to forget asking if not reminded. Great compilation.
Possible. Normally, I prefer audio books where the authors record themselves, but here I am not so sure...
Fewer religious references would be preferable.
Absolutely. I will ask more questions that will open up the conversation, and hope to get more inspiring meetings, conversation and general dialogue.
A little more science and research references would help credibility, and tie in better with other popular authors on similar topics.
I thought the authors did a great job of explaining power questions using their past experiences, and discussing what they learned and how it helped them. Really helped me visualize similar circumstances and get a more personal relationship to the power questions.
Great read for anyone, but especially those who are in a more sophisticated sales environment.
Compelling, Useful, Entertaining
The cliche of "what keeps you up at night"
Yes, but my memory is fuzzy at the moment. Not feeling particularly well.
When I finished this book, I started it over and immediately started listening again.
I'm a lawyer and mediator. I represent businesses in disputes with their insurers and in other complex litigation. I also assist machinery companies and manufacturers (primarily international) with equipment sales, non-disclosure agreements, and business issues. I also mediate commercial disputes.
This is a good book written by two authors who tag team the narration. The book provides an excellent introduction into how asking particular questions can lead to discovery of needs, a relationship as a trusted adviser, and, ultimately, sales.
The performance is not terrible. Sobel is basically very smooth. Panas has a really interesting voice (think "gravel"), but he occasionally just mangles words the text. The producers should have insisted that he re-record these obvious errors, which are distracting. Not well-produced for this reason.
