Fierce Conversations

Written by Jason Carter on September 21st, 2007

  • Book Rating: 2/5

Not the best audiobook, but worth renting. If you have an anti-social personality, this could help you.

difficult to listen to this, but good content

  • Book Rating: 3/5

The content in this book is good - good points and very thought provoking. However, there are many "steps" and also "principles" to the process of fierce conversations. I kept forgetting which step we were on. If I was reading this, I would have been flipping the pages back and forth to refresh my memory. However, listening to it was more difficult.
