Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

Robert Cialdini's famous book Influence is more about individual technique to gain influence.

But this book is more about gaining influence in a community and as a leader.

Read/listen to both books, you will gain a more wholesome view of influence techniques and methods.

Good listen.

It will be a bonus if there's a some summary/note accompanying this book.

Michael McIntyre has become Britain’s biggest comedy star. His debut stand-up DVD, Live & Laughing, was the fastest selling of all time, only to be eclipsed by his second, Hello Wembley, which sold over 1.4 million copies and was the 2009 Christmas number one. He hosts his own BAFTA nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-up in 2009 following his record breaking 54-date Arena tour.

He always drawled off making it hard to understand and seems uninterested and forced reading his own book.
The story itself is not interesting or intriguing, not much about his struggle to become a better comic but more about his love story. Listening this not helped by me listening to Kevin Hart's audio book just before his which is superb and inspiring. So the comparison is against McIntyre.

But he has the right to cause he proved it.

But since he puff himself out too much, towards the end I feel a bit of his cockiness.

The readers is superb. Sometimes I forgot it was NOT Zlatan reading his own book (maybe the accent helped a lot :)
