The only issue was for me the volume of music during tips. The music itself was great, but it interferred with the tips and they were harder to hear.

The first two and the last two chapters were useful. All other chapters with examples of people who had succeeded thanks to their growth mindset and people who had failed because of their fixed mindset were less useful. In fact, I fast fowarded through a couple of such chapters as they were repetitive in the point they were trying to make: the only explanation of success/failure was the difference of mindset.

The book offers good advice, but could be much shorter in my view. The seven questions could be simply presented with a little bit of explanation.

My review is based on less than half of the book. I struggled finishing it. The ideas are common knowledge/sense, the book does not offer practical ideas for addressing wotkplace problems, but just goes on and on about how important it is to address them. The content might be good for students though as an intro to understanding organizations.

The content is not bad, the author does provide useful insights and advice. However, 'usable' information starts only in chapter 4 or 5. The first ones talk about the greatness of the author, about stories which have way too much detail and are a waste of time. I am glad I eventually made it through these first chapters, but i was seriously considering to quit several times.
The narrator's voice is fine apart from when he tried to speak in a special or low voice...which felt me willing to switch to smth else.

Frankly speaking, I was reluctant to start this book, because I was thinking to myself that 'I already know a lot about feedback and I already take feedback well... well as long as it is right, of course'. ... I was wrong! With this book, I have learned so much about the feedback, its types, and how we receive it. I have reconsidered what makes feedback right or wrong, and how seemingly wrong feedback may uncover our blind spots. The advice provided in this book also applies to giving feedback.
The voices of both authours were absolutely fine to me.
Most importantly, there's NO wasted time with general statements or description of how great the authors are. I found this book to be extremely dense in what you can actually apply in life. If I could, I would give a 6-star rating.

A very good book, well structured, full of practical advice on how to prepare for and conduct/take part in difficult conversations.
