I felt like the narrator was a close friend talking to me - things I needed to know but that no one told me

I really liked this book and I’ll be listening to it again and again. Lately, I have been struggling at work with my social skills. Patrick king reminds us that at the core of every situation every human wants the same thing: validation, acceptance, and acknowledgement (those might not be the exact words but you get the idea). I need to listen to it again to really get it to soak in. First time around about 3 percent stuck which to me, if a book sticks at all it is of value. All that he wrote is obviously from personal experience and not just him talking ABOUT it AT us.

Best one so far, imo.

This is the kind of stuff I Actually wanted from my psychology courses. Is this what communications majors learn? I should've tried that instead.

This is my favorite of the 3 that I've listened to so far. And so far they're all fairly distinct. They've all contained some different actionable information to aid your success in self-improvement and people skills. I intend to keep listening.

Narration and examples in this one were solid.

Good Content

I just realized this was the second book by Patrick King that I bought in the last week. I enjoyed his other book "Improv(e) Your Conversations" much more.

I did like the concept of the Platinum Rule in this book as opposed to the Golden Rule, and I hadn't heard about Ethos, Pathos and Logos before so I'm interested in researching that more. Also the four personality types was interesting I'll try to remember that when interacting with different people. I guess there were a couple concepts this book introduced to me, but it seemed a little simplistic. I would recommend Patrick King's other book "Improv(e) Your Conversations" first.
