Not great reading

Good concepts but the reader is a little difficult to listen to. Weird pauses in the middle of sentences make or hard to follow. H s got some sort note system and you can hear keyboard clicks through the whole article. But the concepts are good and good info to have.

worst audio book i have heard

This was the worst audio book I have heard. I have read several other books by Daniel Goleman and I appreciated the content of this book, the stilted performance mixed with bad editing made it almost impossible to understand the thought process of the book. I would recommend this title but I would suggest reading it and not listening to it.
