The relationship laws that drive success.
There are powerful but invisible laws that determine whether your relationships —with your clients, colleagues, and friends—will thrive or wither. These relationship laws are ever-present. When you align with them, the results are dramatic. Your network will grow rapidly. You’ll be seen by clients as a trusted partner rather than an expense to be managed. And you’ll find the people around you eager to help you succeed.
When you ignore the laws, however, your efforts will falter. Relationship building will seem like very hard work.
Power Relationships gives listeners a unique, entertaining guide to relationship success at work and in life. Each of the 26 laws is illustrated and explained using a compelling, real-life story that shows how to implement it. The second section of the book presents 16 common relationship challenges with specific solutions. You’ll hear about:
Sobel (author of Clients for Life, All for One, and Power Questions [with Panas]) and Panas (author of Asking and Supremely Successful Selling) have sold over half a million books and are the leading authorities in their field. Power Relationships is a unique, road-tested guide to relationship success.

I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.
I will listen to this over and over again. Though there were a lot of applications appropriate for business, I found that a lot of the "laws" were very applicable to family and friend relationships and made me re-examine my own relationships.
The only other book I could even remotely compare it to would be The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. But this book was more specific to relationship building. Some overlaps between the two books though.
No, I have not, but I feel I should. Next step- hunting for other books by this dynamo team.
The whole book. I won't summarize. Read the book! You won't regret spending the money for this one.
I like both authors' approach .. Simple language .. Full of interesting Stories .. And finally summarizing the piece of info they need to deliver ...
What I like also: short chapters that make future follow up easy ..
I wish to see more works like this again ..
The comparison of two partners at audit firms, one of whom has a relationship with her clients and is a trusted adviser to them (credit: the always excellent David Maister), whereas the other is in a crunch, because he's selling a commodity (lowest-cost audit) and does not have a relationship.
Author narration in general is nice, but one of the authors could sound more upbeat.
For first 45 minutes sound quality is really bad. It seems if the play speed has slowed down. But since I am on MAC I cann't do anything to change the play speed.
