Good narrator. Sensible ideas.
The writer tends to belabor the point. She uses more words than needed to get to the point. Once she says there are three steps or five reasons or whatever, list them. Don't build up to each one. The book would probably be an hour or two shorter if she would just tell us what she has to say instead of telling us what she is going to say.
Sallie has a rich, voluptuous voice that is easy to listen to. I thought the pace of this book was a bit slow. I will look for other books she has narrated.
Professional Actress and Audiobook Narrator. Lifetime Story Teller.
This book has some good "nuggets" that can help anyone wishing to amp up their work environment and are looking for a positive change in that environment but just did not know how to get started. The examples and motivational tips were truly insightful.
I think the author has people's best interest in mind but the book itself was repetitive and too long.
The narration by Sally Downing was spot on. She has a clear and precise voice that glides through the narration making it enjoyable to listen to.
This book was given in exchange for an honest review.
I've listened to only one so I guess it's the best I've heard!
There were several interesting points, I guess the idea that people that believe in themselves and have confidence exude a "glow" (or in my words charisma).
She had a wonderful voice, she kept me interested.
I'm still processing what I've listened to.
Enjoyed the book overall
