Great audio performance.

Some tips more useful than others. But the book is short enough, it is worth listening to the whole thing.

I am applying some of the ideas to teaching my daughter and how to learn things at work. This is highly recommended for already high performers.

Start with Why shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way - and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with why.

Well written and well read. Worth liste ING to drive home many of the ideas. Wish last chapter on competition was a bit longer, as there are some gems in that, while some other chapters had some repetition. Worth the listen.

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

While I luckily lead a life that already incorporated nearly everything in the book, it manages to put into words what I have tried to describe (unsuccessfully) to others regarding the secret to my happiness.

I'm not sure you can understand the real truth in the book without experiencing it, but it is worth trying, as it is the most valuable life change you could make to think like the book suggests.

Narration was the best I have seen, what a good job.

Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

Must read for any managers or aspiring managers. I would recommend this be read with Jim Whitehurst's book open organizations. Performance was great, as the author provides extra insight a narrator might not have. Content is still applicable today.

This is the new leadership Bible for the fast paced world. Good luck competing if your company doesn't adopt at least some of the structures or ideas contained within this book.

It is filled with so much great content, with very little repetition or filler. The narration was great, and it felt as if the author himself was just having a one sided convetsstion with the listener. Absolutely recommend the audible book, but I also bought the physical book as I will be going back to this resource again and again.

I will be personally recommending this book to everyone I know. It is on par with "How to win friends and influence people" in terms of its future relavence in my opinion. At least for the business world.

Don't pass this one up.

Don't let problem people get to you! Whether it’s a manager who keeps moving the goal posts, an uncooperative colleague, negative friend, or critical family member, some people are just plain hard to get along with. Often, your immediate response is to shrink or sulk, become defensive or attack. But there are smarter moves to make when dealing with difficult people. This book explains how to cope with a range of situations with difficult people and to focus on what you can change.

Highly recommend searching out other resources. There is a bit of useful info in the middle of the book, but the first third to half was not about the title of the book in my opinion. While I get that you need to look at your self, that was not what was advertised.

I did get a few reminders of things I have read elsewhere, so there is that...

The narration is a bit stiff. If you really want to read this book, I suggest reading it, as it would be easier to skim over 90% of the book to get to the 5% that the title purports to address. Felt like this book could have been 1/5th the size and been the better for it.

Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

The story is brought to life by the wonderful narration. I saw the movie a long time ago so almost overlooked this gem. The original story is much more fleshed out and the narration is a perfect way to get into it

Do not overlook this offering. From the first few chapters, to the final words, I couldn't wait to hear what happened next, even after knowing the plot in general.

Already downloaded the next books in the series, as I knew I would want them after getting about half way through Dune.

We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

Worth the listen, but does spend too much time on fate. I suppose that is what motivated the author. Personally wasnt looking for motivation, so those aspects were wasted on me, and harder to skim in audible format, but the narrator did a great job with the material. Some topics the author is not speaking with proper authority in my opinion. Comments on ADHD or mental illness were off bad from what I understand. I get the point he was trying to make, but there is a better way. The idea of not being a victim and let it be an excuse is important, but you also cannot deny things are different in certain circumstances. Sometimes succeeding does entail seeking help and not merely working through it harder than before. The work is still required, on that point he is right.

Again, nit picking, as the book will positively impact my life and creativity going forward.
