Summary

Most people think they listen well, but they rarely do - not at this level. Listening this way is a radical act.

The power of effective listening is recognised as the essential tool of good management. In this book, Nancy Kline describes how we can achieve this and presents a step-by-step guide that can be used in any situation.

Whether you want to have more productive meetings, solve business problems, create bold strategies, or build stronger relationships, this book offers you a new world of possibilities.

From blue chip companies developing high-powered teams to individuals seeking personal growth, a thinking environment has come to mean transformation of the highest quality.

A must-read, but avoid listening!!

So badly recorded, so poor quality, amateur, released without cleaning the mouth/saliva sounds, without editing small mistakes/repeats and with terrible sound-quality music in between chapters/parts. I’ve literally struggled to listen; and admittedly quit at the end of part 2.

It is such an amazing book, GREAT view/ideas! Definitely a ‘must-read’ that I would recommend to everyone. Yet, please do ‘read’ so that you can appreciate the value of the content.

I’d strongly recommend re-recording of the book!

Great book well narrated

This is a great book and well narrated by the author. There are a few areas needing post production review (author repeats themselves in what is clearly a ‘second take’) I found this a bit distracting.

One of the best books I've heard. But you can hear her saliva and swallowing throughout - uncomfortable and disturbing to listen to

Excellent book, editing and chapter voice poor

The book and author narration is superb. Their is so much packed into this book that can benefit anyone. Manager, family, teacher....

The main narration is excellent and the author speaks in a calm composed manner allowing you to soak up the main theme ‘listen’.
Unfortunately after 50% through the editing is poor with repeated sentences etc. The voice that introduces the chapters is awful, extremely old fashioned and irritated through. I almost returned it 1/2 way but the content prevented me from doing so.

Please re edit and please remove the chapter narrator.

Inspirational

So thought provoking with clear steps to put her suggestions into practice. Hearing Nancy's voice makes it even more of a call to action. Excellent book!

A book that soothes the mind and soul.

If there's a more soothing and reassuring voice than Nancy Kline's for an audiobook, I've yet to hear it. Even listening at double speed it still soothed me in ways I didn't expect and not just her voice, the words, her message and mission spoke straight to the heart of everything I care about
I hope everyone will check this book out and create thinking environments in their lives. The stories of real world application were fantastic and Nancy's own journey to this practise is phenomenal.
My only negative is the audio editing. Many recording do-overs were left in and unfortunately were a little distracting. I'm not sure I noticed them in More Time to Think but I'm going to revisit that book soon. If Nancy wants proof listeners in the future, I'm here for it and would be more than happy to take out the recording mistakes for any future version.

Wonderful book

A must read for all. The pace was slow - which was frustrating at first - but that was exactly the premise of the book. Take time to make time. An idea that permeates all parts of life. Simply brilliant!
