High Level Advice on Sales and Business, short of details

An okay collection of thoughts and advice for new sales or business people starting out, some good bits of information if you haven’t read many business books before. Does not go into deep detail about sales. Very dry and boring narration, listen for the content but this would have been better as a read than audiobook to pick up on his list of points. It sometimes felt like the lists were not very coherent or logical.

Picked up some good tips

Picked up some great tips and implemented them right away with some great results. It’s about cutting back your expectations for what you expect to be able to get from your day to have the most impact on your goals. Some parts are more a personal journey than offering scientific rigor but I think the research is thorough enough to get a good sense of what you need to do in your own unique situations, like any book it’s a guide. I will note about half way through for some reason the mic recording equipment might have changed and you could hear very sharply and loudly every.single.draw.of.breath between each sentence being read. It was EXTREMELY irritating and hard to focus on the content of what was being said, not sure if this can be edited now but it really ruined he experience of the audiobook (car stereo, phone speakers, Bluetooth headphones all had the same problem)

Key management lessons for those in manager or leadership positions, but applicable to anyone who has even an inkling of wanting to do more for themselves and their organizations. It provides guidance on essential questions to ask yourself day to day, and has helped answer some problems I have been having in my management role giving me a clearer direction on how to move forward and prevent future problems from arising. It feels simple and concise, but I know I will be coming back to this auidobook often to review its lessons, truly a timeless classic.

Insightful and Powerful.

I have heard portions of these kinds of principles from various sources over the years but until now have not been able to find a single source that goes into such detail and depth about building an organizational culture and people management. Something I have struggled with in recent years in a new role as manager in charge of building up people and systems within the company. This book gives a lot of clear guidance on where I can improve significantly in the work place. Being able to see so deeply and with great clarity into how a larger successful organization has operated and grown gives me a lot more motivation to do better. After listening to the audio book I have purchased the hard copy and will do so as a gift to colleagues and friend/family.

Incredible Story!

Funny, engaging, hilariously and tragically interesting life story I had no idea about Trevor Noah's origins.
