The Art of the Argument shocks the dying art of rational debate back to life, giving you the essential tools you need to fight the escalating sophistry, falsehoods, and vicious personal attacks that have displaced intelligent conversations throughout the world. At a time when we need reasonable and empirical discussions more desperately than ever, The Art of the Argument smashes through the brain-eating fogs of sophistry and mental manipulation, illuminating a path to benevolent power for all who wish to take it.

The book started with some good discussions about arguments but it quickly got too political, the author used the definition of argument too loosely. This book was more about arguing his outdated conservative principles and bashing the "welfare state" if you are looking for a book about how to debate, or argue then stay away.

Why do only a few people get to say "I love my job?" It seems unfair that finding fulfillment at work is like winning a lottery; that only a few lucky ones get to feel valued by their organizations, to feel like they belong. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things.

Would you consider the audio edition of Leaders Eat Last to be better than the print version?

I personally prefer the audio version. Simon is a very talented author and narrator. The book is very enjoyable to listen to. Perfect sound quality, and performance.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Leaders Eat Last?

Have been waiting a long time for this book. Simon didn't disappoint. This book is a gem, it truly makes you think and re-examine your assumptions on leadership. A must read for all managers and leaders.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes! I could not stop listening to it. Looked forward to my drive to and from work. Too bad it was only a bit longer than 8 hours long!
