This audio summary is read is such a boring and monotonous way. There's quite a lot of I retesting info to absorb but the delivery is just so dull. I found it very disappointing and asked for a refund.
"Not worth it"
don't waste your money, nothing to learn here. the main book might be ok, just not the summary
The narrator has done a good job. Good and practical information, easy to follow. Simple but effective.
"Influenced by this book summary"
Good book summary that outlines key concepts of Cialdini's work.
Fantastic, clear narration from Chrystianna Robinson.
"Very few insights"
It does summarize the book, but I got the feeling that there were few techniques explained making it seem as if the book actually has very few insights into how to persuade someone.
