What is your time worth? Learning how to listen and ask the right questions is so important. This book reinforces this philosophy and provides insight into how to apply it to your life.
The points here are smart but the authors provide a lot of padding that's not necessary. One author reads well the other one is very difficult to listen to.
At first when I started listening however, I wasn't sure of what I had bought. I continued to listen though and kept comming back to it. Then all of a sudden BOOM! I understood the power behind the power questions concept and when used properly can get you out of seemingly tight and impossible situations, resolve apparently unsurmountable problem, even land the greatest job or contract you can imagine. Worth listening to.
If you are looking for sales question help this book is NOT for you.
Book was generic questions and could have been 20 minutes long for the material that took almost 4 hours for them to cover.
The stories that wrap around each question are great - they illustrate the point so well.
The experience of the authors and the fact that they read the book brings an extra element that I really enjoyed.
I personally enjoyed listening to the stories but will need to purchase a copy of the print book as this is a very important book.
I would include this book on my list of absolute top reads such as The 7 Habits. I will also be reading Mr. Sobel's other books shortly as I hear that All for One is a good read.
This unfortunately is the only one available on Audible.
Ask and you shall receive
I do not often review audio books but felt compelled to do so for this book which I highly recommend.
This could have been 20% of the length. There are superfluous quotations added that get in the way. Many are cliches. All the music lyrics referenced (yes, this is useless) are boomer-era, of course. 1/3 of the stories are helpful. 2/3 are too generic.
cliche' after cliche'
You can play at double speed and not miss a thing. I have never been able to do that w/any other recording.
All I need is the list of questions. skip the audible, just get the kindle version.
I love to read bout I don't make the time for it, so I am a bad lover ;)
