Not as useful as the author's other books
This book is much like the other books on the 5 Languages of Love except that it is not as focused. Unlike the 5 Languages of Love specifically for spouses, children, teenagers, etc., this book cover a wider range of situations (such as boss-employee, employee-employee, workers, volunteers, leaders of companies, and leaders of non-profit organizations). Therefore, you'll most likely find only half of the book to be relevant to you. The examples for demonstrating appreciation are useful:
- Words of Affirmation (praise in public or handwritten note)
- Quality Time (quality conversation, phone call to check in, or lunch)
- Acts of Service (offering help or work as team on an assignment)
- Tangible Gifts (gift card for something the person values)
- Physical Touch (pat on the shoulder or high five)
Usually, you can identify a person's language of appreciation by observing how that person express appreciation to others (such "Thank you so much for doing that for me. I want to take you to lunch." or "I got this for you because I knew you would like it."). When you deliver appreciation using the right channel, people hear the message and feel that what they do matter.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The content is great and informational, but would be best to have the book (Whispersync) as a guide because the narration is very monotone. . . . zzzzzzzz
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Glad it was over. . . . use the book as a guide to get past the narrator's monotone voice
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Wes Bleed?
Absolutely, or different narrators throughout the book.
Do you think The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Application of the concepts and ideas would be nice as a follow-up
Any additional comments?
Audible doesn't provide any effective resource to take an assessment for this tool.

A few good pointers
I enjoyed this and found a few good pieces of information. Though I felt like most of the book was just trying to sell me the inventory and get me to convince others to purchase the inventory. If you took that and the constant examples out, you've got about an hour worth listening too.
