Where does Fierce Conversations rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
In the genre of Self-Improvement, this book is probably toward the top-middle of my list. Not my favorite but really good advice.
I must say that it took too long to get to the meat of the book. I was on the verge of giving up on it when she started to get into the applicable parts. Also, the book contains really useful strategies that are well laid out when you get to them, but she mentions them and defends them as if you are familiar with the tactics first, and then describes how to do them and what they are later (see "mineral rights" in the book). If I've bought a book on Fierce Conversations, I don't want to read half of it just to be convinced of its importance. If it's important, I'll keep reading. The book could have been better edited and arranged.
What other book might you compare Fierce Conversations to and why?
I'd compare this to Mindset by Carol Dweck. About that level of insight and really a book about practical ways to be more effective and happy. Mindset had a bit more hard science to it with studies and research driving it, whereas Fierce Conversations is driven by the anecdotal (but powerful) experiences of Susan Scott.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Not that the book is a story, but the Narration was generally well paced. I find that author-narrator is usually a bad idea. "Take of all the hats and write books please!" is my usual sentiment. She comes off a little school-marmy, but she's easy to understand and keeps you involved.

Would you listen to Fierce Conversations again? Why?
Absolutely! This book really helped me breakthrough some barriers I've had with difficult conversations. I've always been one to sugar coat things, never wanting to make someone feel bad. The author helped me understand that straightforward honesty and accountability is where it's at... I've found the principles to be tried and true.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The entire volume. Loved it!
