This is good holiday listening. It is well read and enjoyable. I have not read the two earlier books in this trilogy but was still able to enjoy this as a standalone story, the plot of the previous two unfold as you go through. I would recommend this and suspect the other two are also worth a listen.
"What I expected"
If you have lived through 'The Blair Years' this is a must read book. Not because it gives an insight into what happened, it can not be considered impartial history, but because it is written and read by Mr Blair. It gives an insight into what he thought he was doing and why.
It reveals the man and you will either get very angry as you listen, or you will think 'What a great man, shame he is not still PM'. Which you think is already decided by your feelings for the decisions he made in the past. Whichever camp you fall into I think you will enjoy the book and talk to others about it.
I enjoyed it and gained some insight into what a politician needs to reach the top. I am not comfortable about these insights but I am glad I have them.
"Psychology in a nutshell"
I love this book. The narration is fine, easy to listen to. The content is excellent. On the down side the introduction is really boreing and I almost gave up on the book. This would have been a great pity as, once you get into the 50 classics, it is really interesting.
Of course not all the books covered will interest everyone and some chapters I found dull, but the chapters are short and I found many books I will be seeking out for future listening or reading.
I would recomend this book to anyone who is interested in people but who has no real knowledge in this field. If you are a psychologist it is most likely not for you, but for the rest of us it is an eye opener.
"change your life"
Michael Heppel sets out ways to change your life for the better. This short entertaining book is well worth a listen, and there should be at least a few new and valuable ideas in it. Recommended.
If you have not yet read this book then you really should. It has been very influential and contains a wealth of ideas. If you only read one personal development book it should be this one. The audio book is well read by the author and is easy to follow and quite entertaining.
This is an excellent book. It uses the author's research to point out why we act in such Irrational ways. There are some very interesting ideas which should prove useful to most people at some point in their lives. The reader is easy to listen to as well.
"good in places"
I must say I quite enjoyed this book. The reading style is a bit stilted, and some of the humour falls flat. There is also a tendency to state the obvious. However, on balance, there are enough gems of wisdom to make it worthwhile.
This book is more about changing yourself than about changing others. Its about how to become a persuasive person rather than about how to persuade. If you can afford it "Success Mastery Academy", by Brian Tracy is much more comprehensive and an easer listen, and you get both for one credit if you are a member. Having said that I am still glad I listened to this book and I would recommend it.
I really enjoyed this audio book. I didn't know much about Brian Tracey so wasn't really expecting much, but he talks a lot of sense. I expect I will listen again, more than once. It is a live talk and very easy to listen to.
