What did you love best about Never Split the Difference?

The book and science is fascinating! I'm listening to it a second time because I believe we pick up or learn what we can on the first time around. I enjoyed the book so much, I purchased the hardcover book to read and take notes.

What did you like best about this story?

The stories bring the techniques to life.

Any additional comments?

I believe if you are in business, have children you negotiate with or customers/clients....OK, everyone should listen to this knowledgeable, wonderful book and learn from the author. I would love to sit and have lunch with Christ Voss.

A newly revised and updated edition of the influential guide that explores one of the most powerful ways to attract attention and influence behavior - fascination - and how businesses, products, and ideas can become irresistible to consumers. In an oversaturated culture defined by limited time and focus, how do we draw attention to our messages, our ideas, and our products when we have only seconds to compete?

Would you consider the audio edition of Fascinate, Revised and Updated to be better than the print version?

This version is very much updated from the previous version and it's fantastic.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The stories that Sally tells and explains are wonderful. Listening to her read the book is beyond great.

Any additional comments?

One of the best audio books I've listened to. Sally does an unbelievable job entertaining her reader in this audio book. I've seen Sally speak and this book is a slice of her personality.
