Difficult people are the worst part of a manager's job. Whether it comes from direct reports or people above, outbursts, irrational demands, griping, and other disruptions need to be dealt with - and it's your responsibility to do it. Leading the Unleadable turns this dreaded chore into a straight forward process that gently, yet effectively, improves behaviors.

Struggle to finish. Nothing new and no real insights into how to deal with the problems that the book suggests.

A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson's fascinating and humorous quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization. He takes subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry, and particle physics, and aims to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. In the company of some extraordinary scientists, Bill Bryson reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

Very in depth information so an open mind is a must! For people looking for an easy relaxing listen, this may not be the best, however for people like me wanting to know a bit about everything, this is amazing.

From how the universe was made to the evolution of humans, this has it all! I'm just sad I've now listened to all of it!
