People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys | [Mike Bechtle]

People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys

You don't have to be controlled by difficult people! Strange as it may seem, other people are not nearly as committed to our happiness as we are. In fact, sometimes it seems like they’re on a mission to make us miserable! There’s always that one person. The one who hijacks our emotions. The one who seems to thrive on drama. If we could just “fix” that person, everything would be better. But we can’t fix other people. We can only make choices about ourselves.

    "GREAT book that delivers it's title"
    Would you consider the audio edition of People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys to be better than the print version?

    Most definately as the author is reading it in a very interesting way


    What was one of the most memorable moments of People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys?

    The moments he was making his suggestions in point format then expanding each point in details. Also all his stories were relevant to the topic and presented in a very interesting way.


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

    The tone of his voice is clearly delivering the points he wrote. I belive this book would have never been as enjoyable if someone else was doing the reading.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    YES, so many times I felt moved by the book and the points he made. In particular I was touched by his statement "do not be the victim of other people's weakness"


    Any additional comments?

    I so much loved and enjoyed the book that I will buy his book "Confident Conversations" in an audio format too.

    Story
    "Riddles With Religious Overtones"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Sadly, before purchasing this book, I only read the synopsis and the first few reviews. Had I done my homework and read more of the reviews, I would have seen the one that pointed out that this book has a strong religious component to it.

    Had I seen that, I would have saved my money.

    The author's reading is done well (hence the 3 stars for performance), however the content and it's emphasis on God, the Bible and matters of Faith were not for me.


    Has People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, however I will be more careful to read ALL of the reviews before purchasing next time.


    What three words best describe Mike Bechtle’s voice?

    Personable, clear, emotive


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them the Keys?

    The subtle yet ever present proselytizing.
