You can't Manage - you must Lead

The first 1 1/2 CD's are about sales forces, and how to lead them, setting goals, etc.

I don't lead sales forces, and I almost quit listening. I didn't like the reader's voice, and thought it "dippy". A bit like Zig Ziggler and Tony Robbins rolled into one.

But one day I didn't have any other CD's, I was caught in bad D.C. traffic, so I went on through 2 and .....

Disks 3-5 (and part of 2) are a wonderful set of stories about how to become self-aware enough to lead yourself, and thereby others. By disk four, I was so enthralled. I sat in the parking lot at work, and my driveway at home to hear the end of a point. I had to quickly turn it off so I wouldn't go through another one! I bought the book. (I bought multiple copies of the book.) I've listened to it again. I still don't like disk one much - I'm not a salesman. But I really enjoy this book.

Buy it. If you aren't a "sales manager" use disk one to get used to his voice (it grows on you, and won't seem "dippy" after about 90 minutes). Then forget it. Grow with disks 2-5.

To write this, I just went to the book to pick my favorite idea number (yes, there are truly 100). I thought it was #30: "Don't Go Crazy," but then I recalled 35: "Score the performance," and then..... you get the idea - every item here has something to offer.

Get it!

400 Quotations and a few good ideas

This book might also have been named 400 quotations somewhat linked to 100 statements supporting about 30 ideas built on about a dozen techniques to motivate, along with some thoughts on time management, happiness, and leadership. But that would have been too long.

Seriously, there are some excellent observations included within, and there's a good book lurking somewhere inside, but it's just too hard to find.

This should also be a good example of the need for an independent narrator. For a book on motivation to be read in a long, droning, hang-dog fashion is just - unmotivating!

I would also suggest for books like this that Audible mark the paragraph divisions better. The jump button doesn't deliver to the next of 100 items, but to somewhere way up ahead. And there will be times you will want to use it.

The book is also repetitious. I suppose a case can be made that focusing, thinking about one thing, and concentrating are not the same, but really....

In summary - Good observations, repetitious, and very loosely organized, delivered with droning narration.
