    not bad ~

    Would you listen to Good Manners again? Why?

    Probably not, because it's easy to remember the content and the principle.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Good Manners?

    When the reader repeated again and again the principle of of good manners is making people feel good.

    What does Deaver Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Probably the faster speed of finishing this book.

    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some, when I recalled some occasion that I wasn't very polite and learned some concept or tips of improving it.

    Any additional comments?

    Generally good, but improvement requires the listeners' own careful reflection and thinking of application of one's daily behaviour.

    Simple and Straightforward

    This book is worth a couple of dollars and an hour of your time. It's nothing earth-shattering and you've probably heard it all before, but I came away from it with an increased desire to be a pleasant person.

    The reader is not a professional, but that didn't bother me, I found him to be friendly and engaging.

    Great Listen

    Deaver Brown is great and to the point. Short and easy listens. These lecture style listens are subject sensitive and to the point. While I could have used a bit more on modern day manners (owning a business in 2010) this was great.

    Simplify

    Just plain good old common sense. Very refreshing! I have liked all the books of his that I have listen to.
