One key message, eat more starch in its natural state!

It didn't take the whole book to get this across to me, but the other material in the book as (while not new) relevant, informative and interesting.

Glad I read it, would not read a 2nd book on this same topic though.

I do plan to implement the suggestions in the book into practice.

A profound and deeply touching book.

Sincere, humane and genuine.

Not easy to listen to. Many segments of the book were painful and sad to listen to.

Yet somehow in the midst of the suffering the therapist is sharing I felt a deeper insight into the human condition. I felt awakened from the state of numbness we sometimes escape to. I felt compassion, a lack of judgement and a deeper understanding.

Well worth the time.

interesting, a bit long winded, applicable, relevant. Glad I listened, but I would not re-listen a second time.

I really wanted to like this book.

Some (not much) original thought. The idea of measuring financial health through cashflow from portfolio income is interesting. The comments about financial education were interesting. The distinction between assets and liabilities (based on the author's criteria) is interesting ...

Some generalities and lack of substance. For example (using my words), if you don't have your own money's to invest, use other people's money. High risk investments sometimes pay off. It's a great idea to buy low and sell high. Come on!

All in all, not a total waste of time, but not a masterpiece either.

I just finished "Never Split the Difference" and wanted to revisit "Getting to Yes" to compare and contrast the two books.

Bottom line, you need to read both books and apply the knowledge to the situation you are facing. The former is relevant
when negotiating with someone who doesn't share your value system. The latter is relevant when negotiating with someone who shares your principles and fundamentals.

Both books are essential business reading.

What a great book.

The head negotiator of the FBI shares his wisdom and insights into how to drive negotiations. Beyond conventional notions of win/win, beyond assumptions of reasonableness, beyond "yes".

Brilliant book, I thoroughly enjoyed it and will review again (and again). Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

A profound book which discusses Adlerian Psychology. I learned new concepts such as Life Tasks, Ernest Living and Dancing in the Here and Now.

I agreed and recognized some of the ideas as true - intuitively, while disagreeing with others - vehemently.

At no time did the book leave me in a state of neutral.

Not an easy read. Substantive and weighty, it will appeal to readers with an interest in psychology and philosophy.

If you like Economics and have a basic understanding, this book's for you.

A detailed discussion about Behavioral Economics and how the field evolved. The book offers convincing theory and justification for the positions it takes.

I'm not sure why we need to prove that humans behave as humans are prone to do, irrationally at times and that not all of us will always make decisions which absolutely serve our best interest. I see this as an intuitive point we can all agree on. But apparently not, thus the book is needed.

Glad I read it. Will likely read his other famous book "Nudge" in time.

If you want to read this book to learn more about Barak Obama, don't. You will get some insights into the man's character and his story from the perspective of a loving wife, but that's anout it. This not what the book is about.

Mrs. Obama describes her journey and her family's journey eloquently and honestly. She shares enough to show you a glimpse into her life, but not so much as to endanger her family's privacy.

Throughout the book, I felt that I am listening to a brilliant mind, to a Harvard educated lawyer, to a loving wife and to "The Mother in Chief". Always compassionate, grounded, reasonable and caring.

My only gripe is that I wish the narration would have been done by a professional narrator. Mrs. Obama does great, but it could get a bit monotonous at times.
