If only I had knowledge of the depth of what is behind the saying..."I am stressed out!" sooner in my life. I may have avoided some of the results of ignorance. I found peace with understanding this now. And, if you are listening to the Great Courses, I bet you will too.

ChgyamTrungpa's unique ability to express the essence of Buddhist teachings in the language and imagery of modern American culture makes his books among the most accessible works of Buddhist philosophy. Here Trungpa explores the true meaning of freedom, showing us how our preconceptions, attitudes, and even our spiritual practices can become chains that bind us to repetitive patterns of frustration and despair.

Great information with good coverage of the subject matter. A bit dry, so you may wish to space it out instead of binge listening.

Western civilization is closely associated with reason and science, and with exceptional accomplishments in art, architecture, music, and literature.Yet it has also been characterized by widespread belief in the supernatural and the irrational - with mystics who have visions of the divine and entire movements of people who wait in fervent anticipation of the apocalypse.

It was informative and I learned from it. I'm glad I stuck with it. The Great Courses sets high expectations so comparitively this one wasn't as easy and fun as most. I think most people hungry to learn will feel like I do and benefit from it but find it hard to articulate just why it doesn't rate up there with the best. Give it a chance and you will be glad you did.

Called "I FORESAW IT," this indispensable framework guides you in assembling the strongest possible case, showing you how to evaluate such factors as creative options, independent criteria, and your best alternative to a negotiated agreement.

Not the slick "how to cheat" type of info. Good solid usable skills for a lifetime of low stress "getting along well" instead.

What does it take to reach success in business - the kind of success that lasts? How do you set yourself apart from competitors or venture out into different markets? What does it take to develop streamlined processes, become a stronger team leader, and work your way up the corporate ladder?

What made the experience of listening to Critical Business Skills for Success the most enjoyable?

The anecdotes and examples bring it to life.

Any additional comments?

If you are like me, even the accounting and financial sections have value in an audio format. This has filled in a bunch of holes I had from learning the subjects in a scattered manner originally. Being auto-didactic does have its drawbacks. I would recommend this to anyone who is in business regardless of what you do on a daily basis.

Very good for the topic covered. However, I was hoping for a bit more meat in help with wording of conversations when performing the actual resolutions.
