Wooden performances marred the content

It probably sounds intolerant; but I could not get past the reading style of the two readers to properly reach the content.

The performances were so wooden that I regretted buying the Audible version and wished I had simply had the Kindle version read back by Alexa. Perhaps I’ll do this and review again.

Wide range of interesting topics

What made the experience of listening to HBR's 10 Must Reads on Communication the most enjoyable?

The wide selection of the articles. Enjoyed the topics.I especially liked Caldini's article on persuation, and Deborah Tannen.

Decent content

decent content with fairly dry narrators make this a piece-meal listen. Articles 3 and 10 are pretty much useless in my opinion. Chapter 3 is nothing more than saying women are all sheepish and bullied by men in every situation and they have no voice in the if a man is present. Chapter 10 simply states the obvious about how to have a tough conversation : be clear, neutral, armed with the facts, and maintain a dialogue.
