This book is what every manager needs.

For those who are new to management, this is a great book to read and learn. To others it is still a great book as a reminder of what is important for happy working environment. The book touches all aspects of managerial daily life, from you, to staff, to culture, to managing up, etc.

I am grateful that I came across this book and highly recommend.

Monotone

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Surely a better reader could have been used Great subject but too hard to listen to

Would you ever listen to anything by Jill Geisler again?

Doubtful

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Monotone slow

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Subject matter is great - maybe it one of those you need the hardback

Missed having lists and quotes on pages

Still worth the listen. Learned a lot. Helped me even more second time that I listened. The reader was enthusiastic.

Better as a hard copy

Useful information and covers a broad range of topics, but uses a lot of bulleted lists and self assessment tests, they don't lend themselves to an audio book.
