    "revolutionary"

    Accomplish more by speaking less. Which questions will switch on the speaker's own capacity to understand and find a practical solution? By asking about their thinking you help them get out of the harried victim mode into a more transcendent clarity vision.

    It is quite involved and entails getting used to a special terminology. Applying it in life is even more challenging, because you will sound very much differently from what you usually are. But even a little application of David Rock's 6 steps seems to help me approach all relationships and human interactions in a much more effective way. It shows how to actually contribute to positive and natural solutions.

    "A Must Read for Anyone in Leadership"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I could not put this book down! It has some profound insights that will greatly help me in dealing with my employees and kids. You have to read it if you are in leadership or are aspiring to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Quiet Leadership?

    The analysis of the how people think


    What does Pete Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great audio effects that captivate you.

    "Inspiring, but needs attention"

    I bought this audiobook after listening to 'Your brain at work' which was fascinating. Quiet leadership was also very inspiring, but it required more concentration to listen to. I usually listen to audiobooks in the car when I am driving and this book needed a bit more focus. There are quite a lot of exercises to put into practice what you are learning about, but I think I will need to listen to it again at home and make notes to get the best out of it. Definitely worthwhile though, and very thought provoking.

    Story
    "Rock's Vision is Best Heard Elsewhere"

    Fresh off of finishing Your Brain at Work, I was keen to dive deeper into David Rock's work. As a first-time people manager, I'd hoped that a practical approach and steps to improving thinking would be useful for me. Ultimately, I found that Quiet Leadership was far less memorable than Your Brain at Work, while covering many of the same themes.

    The continuous reference to the PDF attachment was also distracting. I prefer audiobook productions to go the extra mile to ensure a good audio experience vs. just a direct reading of the text.

    In terms of narration, I found Pete Larkin's performance to be adequate, if a little bit dry.

    If you're looking for some new direction on 'thinking about thinking', this is 7 hours well spent, but I think you'd be better served by putting in the extra three hours and going for the much more satisfying Your Brain at Work.
