Change the title
If you are looking for Crucial Conversations, the book that has been a life changer and real game changer, this isn't it. I made a mistake and was on my phone going through the shop and thought I got a deal on the real book. Turns out I was wrong. This is probably one of the funniest books I've ever listened to, because really it just sounds like a book that is all about how to show up and network. The title is misleading.
I really enjoyed it and when I heard that last sentence, I wondered if it was leaving a door open for a sequel and immediately checked back here.
