GREAT PERSPECTIVE

So many of us forget the level of control we have over our attitude and how that in turn impacts how we are perceived and how we ourselves perceive others, which in turn greatly impacts our overall happiness.

So glad I listened to this!

A mentor suggested the book. I wanted to finish it quickly and with my hectic life, I really didn't have time to read...but I could listen. I remembered that Amazon had suggested this app to me before because I am an avid Amazon buyer. I am glad I chose this for my first "read". The narrator had a great voice. I liked how she made her voice deeper to indicate men or others voices. The storyline reminded me of my own work environment and how my current leadership turned our department around. In less than 3 years we went from "ugh them" to "awww them". We have what we call Laughter Hour. When we don't have it, the other departments around us ask us what's going on. We have seen tremendous revenue growth. And as I said, I see a lot of the concepts from this recording in our team. I will certainly recommend that we all listen to this to look for areas to grow more. Thanks Audible for teaching us how to Fish!

Interactively Enjoyable

Reading a book is one thing but, listening to this book was amazing. Helps to bring the characters to life and enjoy a great read while being able to multitask.

Amazing!

I was honestly shocked by this book. I thought that I would dread having someone read me a book, but I loved it! I was expecting a monotoned reader, but I received an engaged reader who had many different tones. Along with multiple readers. I read the first 20 pages of the book and i got 10 times more out of her reading it to me than reading it myself.

Touching and emotional story

When I heard about the concept I was a little bit sceptical. But going through the book I realised how amazing this concept is.

Created in a though working environment, fish philosophy is one of it's kind, life changing way of seeing the world.

Don't Waste your credit

Awful narration. I couldn't finish it because of the "voices". I'm sure buying the actual book is better

Very superficial and poorly written

I was very disappointed in this book. I read a very good book on company culture called 'Worth Doing Wrong" and the author quoted Fish! a couple times. I trusted his judgement and purchased the audio book. I feel so disappointed. There is no depth to the story. It is like a bad fairy tale which was very poorly written. :(
