Comprehensive & enlightening

Good stuff! Really concise and useful - never boring. I’m already able to use these tips. I listen to loads of business books and am surprised this one hasn’t popped up before.

repeats itself to much

good content but could be cut down by at least an hour by omitting the overview or doing a high level overview. seems like they just took a ten minute chunk from the chapter word for word and plugged it in as the overview.

Not bad but I couldn’t complete it.

Unfortunately I could not complete this audiobook

Many chapters remain incomplete for more than a month.

I don’t find the stories relevant nor appealing.

The previous books I purchased from the same category are way much better, interesting and intriguing.

Some great insights

Some great insights on how to manage people in a business environment. Plenty of scenarios detailed and analysed. Lots of ideas and suggestions on how to deal with awkward and difficult people situations. I would recommend this audiobook.

Seriously old,

One of these articles is from 1980! The rest are mostly mid 90s. Definitely in need of an update.
