Short audio but worthwhile. Excellent information, and well-presented.
The tips in this book were perfect for the 1980s, but fail in today's more anti-egoist (for better or for worse) business climate. The politically correct, touchy-feely, be-a-team-player office guy is not going to learn much from Mr. Frank. Sadly, perhaps, in order to really make it in the business world today, you either have to have no individual self (only an altruistic receptivity to others' wants and needs) or convince those around you that you have no such self. Again, not exactly the thing back then, but it sure is now.
Offered nothing useful. A child could have provided more info.
What can I say..it was quick and done within seconds...good points on improving communication. Worth the listen.
This series is useless without the workbooks that come with it. I am not sure it would be great if it had them.
This book was short, sweet and to the point. It actually works.
Entertaining listening. Was more of a production than just a reading. Content a little light. Examples were a bit weak, but some good tidbits.
For those of us, like myself, who struggle with getting our point across, this is a great primer. Short and to-the-point, it was easy to digest and never dull. My biggest complaints were technical. When listening to self-improvement CDs/tapes I often like to "rewind" and catch key points again. Unfortunately, this CD only had a few tracks and I found myself searching a lot to find what I wanted. The audio was poor at times and the actors were uninspiring and unconvincing. Also, I was left feeling cheated by the lack of real-world examples. All-in-all though, it was worth the time and I would check out other titles by this author. I give it 27 johnnys out of 38. oAo
Not really worth the time although it is only 1 CD. The author gives nothing new and it wasn't particularly entertaining.
I was hoping for a lot more out of this. The author liked to let you know he was from hollywood. He coverd some basic ideas you learned in high school and dramatized it with anecdotes. Have an objective, sometimes a hook works, write the body, and close it. There you go, just saved you some time. :)
