Starts good...

What did you like best about The Best Kept Secrets of Great Communicators System? What did you like least?

The first half of the book was actually very good and informative. I would highly recommend it based upon that. I was surprised to begin hearing a vocabulary list for the last half... hundreds of vocabulary words with definitions, how they are used in sentences, and common grammar usage issues. While I have to admit, most of these were helpful, quite a few are already present in my everyday communication. I kept skipping ahead, hoping to hear more content, but instead, found more vocabulary. <br/>When I look for one of these books, I look for substance (both length and content). I feel the content was adequate and very useful. The length of the book left me with a feeling of being taken advantage of.... kind of like someone who writes a term paper and packs it full of filler words to meet the minimum word requirement. <br/>He may not have meant it that way, but it gave that disappointing impression anyway.

If you’ve listened to books by Peter Thomson before, how does this one compare?

Have not listened to any of his other books.

Any additional comments?

I hate to have people completely disregard this book based upon the vocabulary list. He does offer a lot of great information. If you are basing your decision on the length of the book, consider the overall length of the book to be about 4 1/2 hours shorter than the stated length. It may help you feel a little better about the last half. The final chapter does "sum things up" but ultimately, the meat of the content is in the first 9 chapters. <br/>Hope this helps.

Great listen

The information was great and useful. The narrator was great as well... I will be listening to it again as there was so much information to grasp.

Chapter's with 100's of vocabulary words, why?

There's valuable information which will be useful in daily interactions, but the vocabulary lesson was a huge disappointment.
