What did you love best about Think Differently?

I was sent this by a friend and it has changed my perspective. This is so refreshing and encouraging. Listening to clients and asking the question What Else? has already improved my relationships. My only criticism is that I wish he would have made it longer.

What other book might you compare Think Differently to and why?

I've listened to over 200 sales, interpersonal, psychology, and leadership books over the years and this may be the best ever. He gets right to the point and gives what seems like 13 hours of great content in under 4hrs. This is Darren Hardy style follow up without the 'in your face' approach. He is easy to listen to and encouraging. I searched for other books by Wells but it looks like this is his only one.

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

You can feel his heart's intention to serve and his encouraging words. He is able to introduce game changing disruptive thought carefully like an expert surgeon. I bought his book on Amazon last fall so I have been waiting for this to come out. I've watched some his videos and can was able to visualize him speaking as I was listening.

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

Definitely. I stayed up too late listening to it because it just keeps getting better as it goes. I will listen to it 3 more times before I do anything else. I am in the process of applying for his training. I was told he is very selective on who he selects. I am grateful for his work!

Any additional comments?

If this is the stuff he is giving away for free, I can only imagine the depth of great insights that are in his real training library. Wells is a sales / customer interaction savant

If you want a behind the scenes look at the secrets behind great companies, great people, great ideas, and great failures, this account will have you on edge in anticipation.
The statistical breakdown of barriers for success is quite sobering yet he finds it. If you're thinking of founding or being asked to invest, this book will bring clarity to your vision, plan, and execution criteria.
This book is filled with technical insider terminology yet they are communicated in a way it could be understood by a 7th grader.
I believe this book will create a pivot point in how the future of startups will benefit more people with greater efficiency and draw the best attributes out of those trying to do the right thing.
I listened and re-listened on audible- this is great work!
Thank you for taking the time to impute your wisdom!!
