Taking the High Road

I enjoyed listening and reading this book. I have it on my kindle and audible. It didn't sync, but I didn't care. (Different editions)

I'm having my staff read because everyone should know how to be civil. Forni explains this in a easy to understand manner. Including the 'what's in it for me'.

Probably a better read

The information in this book is good, but I think it might be a better read than a listen. From the narration it seems that the actual book might be one of lists, highlighted boxes, and standard texts. This did not translate well into an audio book. I did finish the book, but am contemplating on getting a print version as reference and to skim over to see what I "lost in translation."
