Would you like to have better solutions to your problems? Struggling to understand why things went wrong when you did everything right? The Art of Thinking in Systems can help you with these problems. You think systems thinking is for politicians, and powerful CEO's? Let me tell you this: a small business is a system, your class at school is a system, your family is a system. You are the element of larger systems - your town, your country, the world. These systems have a different dynamic. The more you know about their nature, the more optimal solutions you'll find to problems.

... but we can improve. This book is awesome in that it breaks down elements into perfect categories that are easy to understand and use. Most of it is stuff I’m sure most of us has heard before however Mr. Schuster does an excellent job connecting the dots as to why these reasonings work. I definitely recommend this book especially for entrepreneurs...

This is well worth listening to every so often. It’s great that it’s short enough to listen to in one sitting. I’m finally writing a review for it after my 3rd time listening just in case someone is on the fence about it. I believe people can get a lot of wisdom through the stories and adventures shared from a warrior’s perspective. You will especially like this if you are interested in martial arts at all...

In boardrooms, classrooms, and living rooms across the country, presentations are designed and delivered in a way that disregards the one tool needed to communicate ideas effectively: the human brain. Incorporating the natural creativity from the human brain will make each presentation you give exciting and memorable.

Would you listen to Speak with Power again? Why?

I plan on listening to this book several times. There's a lot of good info packed in this book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Speak with Power?

I loved how he discusses using the environment to create powerful audience impacts.

What about Michael J. Gelb’s performance did you like?

I normally do not take the time to leave reviews but I had to for this book. I love the fact that he wrote and read the book demonstrating the principles he teaches. He literally made my light bulb turn on. I truly feel that Gelb can speak powerfully about such a subject because he obviously loves what he does.

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

No, I devoured this book in small bites over a period of days.

Any additional comments?

Great book for public speakers. Get it!

People can say what they want but the advice offered in this book goes a long way to keep your man interested and engaged in the relationship. Plus it gives women permission to be themselves. I know the advice works because I've done it although subconsciously. I'm a high value woman by nature but to hear it explained here really helps me understand why my exes keep trying to work their way back to me. However things are different when you want a guy to like you. This book helped me to understand what I did right to keep the other guys coming back so I know what to do for the one I really want now... Great job Gregg! Thanks for the insight.
