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 ;)
Yes , I did
They make it real and from the hart
I love it and I will use it in my work
It make it stronger if a PDF attachment for the Question was with it
Mn transplant from california. Computer geek online seller, who loves hiking, hunting, sailing, singing and writing music.
Yes, If you want to change how you form and ask questions, this book is a great start.
The final story in the book was great
Well maybe as a documentary.
I loved that it teaches you how battle your way out of issues by slowing things down and asking questions
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.
