This audiobook, developed from extensive feedback from students, parents, and education professionals, shows you how to educate your children to appreciate the value and uses of money. Starting with finances for the unborn, Anita works us through the expenses of pre-school, primary, secondary, and tertiary education expenses. And yes, the vexatious question of pocket money: how much, when do you start, and how to stop paying are all covered.

Dr Elder had a great way of articulation that make the complexity of market psychology manageable to understand. His analogy of bull and bear in the market provide a great view of how market move. The narrator is also very clear and consistent that make it a great listen.

Simple and yet powerful massage to save a marriage

Dr Chapman has so effectively summaries the confusing topics of love into 5 key areas. Instead of what many books talk about, we should do this/that.... what I like about this book is its principal of finding out what works for your spouse first, then focus on his/her love language that he/she understand to work on the marriage. I feel it is powerful and can't wait to apply to my marriage.

There just isn't enough time for everything on our to-do list - and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure those get done. They eat their frogs. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life.

Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

I was driven by the authors' previous title Crucial Confrontation where they give many practical examples and enriches their concept. This book is no exception and I benefited alot from practical examples across the globe given by the well researched authors.

More of a book for Public Relation

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 07-23-08

I brought this audio in expectation on providing practical tips on delivering impactful massages. Sure enough the early part of the book gives alot of practical advices on presentations and planning key messages to audience. The later half deal mainly with handling and taking advantage of public media to drive the point. Good for managing public relations but not what I am looking for in enhancing communication at a personal level.
