A book for future management

Management of teams is often about persuading them to perform. Most if not all people do not go to work to fail deliberately so why not create a safe environment for them to work in? This shows you one possibility.

The range of subjects in this is huge so each chunk should lead you into further reading. It doesn't leave you hanging but thirsty for more. Great choice of narrator as well.

I struggled to remember lots of it but the ideas, concepts and more importantly why some people may struggle with language stuck. I liked the games, rhymes and paradoxes.

Lots of ground covered here but stick with it for an insight into explaining, or at least understanding, nature and the modern world around us without a need for any faith in any divinities.

I got a bit lost sometimes with the terminology and the narration sensationalized it's tone

Of course things have changed in that many chemicals are controlled but we still see the indiscriminate use of poisons and the finacially driven adoption of others. Read this and see how we have still not learned enough.

Good collection.

For me this was reinforcing ideas from many management courses, possibly developed from John Adair originally. Whilst listening I would recommend a pen and paper or learn how to bookmark specific points in the text.

"Bee-fried air", flies that "land, sizzle and fly away", "scarves of smoke" from chimneys. I wonder how long it took Bradbury to think of the descriptions? Not edge if the seat stuff by any stretch of the imagination but a description of small-town America one summer between the wars that should be read in summer to add to the atmosphere created.

A good read

Often funny, informative and occasionally bittersweet this is a good insight into what it might be like to follow what you can of the bible. I like the idea of doing things that eventually leads to being. Don't swear and become less angry.

I would listen to this with a pen and paper to write the acronyms down.
