Most Helpful

Very disappointing after reading the last book.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It would not be possible to make this book 4 or 5 star unless Warren takes it off the shelf and rewrites it with the same enthusiam that was so infectious in the first book.

I don't know what happened to Warren on this one. After buying the Best damn sales I couldn't wait to buy another book.

Firstly it was edited very badly. A lot of silent space between the chapters.

Second it was too short,

Thirdly,did not cover any real tips for an aspiring starting manager who doesn't have the hiring ability or the ability to offer big incentives. Most people starting in management need help building and motivating a team. We need help in the financial and strategic planning. WARREN LIKE THE SALES BOOK!!!! where you talked through how to planhow many calls If you have already reached this level you wouldn't need a self help book.

It was just story after story about his Kids or the Giants coach. He even mentioned that he was an awful sales manager.

This was just a money spinner and quite frankly I would take this off the shelf Warren. You may get a second sale after the Sales Book but you won't get a third or a fourth.



What could Warren Greshes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Re listen to your sales book or listen to this book. it won't take a genius to work out the difference.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

You just seemed completely lost and un focused.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Best Damn Management Book Ever?

First the Silences.

Second the stories about your wonderful parenting which start off mildly amusing and by the end of the first half extremely irritating. All parents thinks their children are wonderful and I am glad they have turned into wonderful achieving adults, but this will not help me adjust into a role as junior manager.

Thirdly, I hate sports but i wouldn't have minded one or two stories but not one and a half hours.


Any additional comments?

Do yourself and your company a favor and remove this book from any shelf or book store in the world
