great advice, but all managers are taught this.

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Not Suck as a Manager to be better than the print version?

I really liked the guys speaking voice...I mimick it, so that I can sound more like him when I talk to my employees at work. I like listening to it on the drive to work, because even though I already know these things, it's nice to hear a reminder...gets me in the right mindset.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Not Suck as a Manager?

I liked the part where he says managers who suck say they don't care about being friends with their employees...lol....because then he says he didn't SAY you need to be friends.yet, every time I meet managers who have problems, that's the first thing they say.haha.nice way to begin, I was hooked after that.

Good points but lacked authenticity

One of the main points is to understand your staff and make honest relationships. Several times the author wouldnt make me beleive what he was saying due to fake laughs about certain comments. This isn't a good trait to pick up on when relaying these themes back to your team therefore I turned off after 1t minutes
