In a world inundated with sales books on getting to yes, this audiobook recommends just the opposite, focusing on how increasing your failure rate can greatly accelerate your movement toward ultimate success. Go for No! chronicles four days in the life of fictional character Eric Bratton, a call-reluctant copier salesman who wakes up one morning to find himself in a strange house with no idea of how he got there.

a cute story, reminiscent of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Christmas carol, but it makes it so easy to remember the point. I recommend it if you are interested in learning how to improve your sales goals.

The world’s most trusted guide for leaders in transition. Transitions are a critical time for leaders. In fact, most agree that moving into a new role is the biggest challenge a manager will face. While transitions offer a chance to start fresh and make needed changes in an organization, they also place leaders in a position of acute vulnerability. Missteps made during the crucial first three months in a new role can jeopardize or even derail your success.

I expected more strategic examples more specific examples and I was disappointed. The book is clearly for c-level executives only.

Most organizations and individuals work in the context of annual goals and plans; a 12-month execution cycle. Instead, The 12 Week Year avoids the pitfalls and low productivity of annualized thinking. This book redefines your "year" to be 12 weeks long. In 12 weeks, there just isn't enough time to get complacent, and urgency increases and intensifies. The 12 Week Year creates focus and clarity on what matters most and a sense of urgency to do it now.

I got very little from the book. Went to the website but it seemed more like an opportunity to spend money on a workbook or coaching. the book consistently told me what a great program the 12 week year is, but all I really got out if it was: treat your time as if you don't have as much of it. You have 12 weeks instead of 12 months to meet goals. I got that idea when I read the title of the book.

According to time management expert Laura Vanderkam, mornings hold the key to taking control of our schedules. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that will allow us to lead happier, more productive lives. Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day.

What disappointed you about What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast?

There was nothing new or different in material. I had a difficult time listening to such a slow deliberate delivery of boring material. I have seen some of the author's posts in other publications so I expected much more "meat" in the audio.
