5 good tips that might improve your relationships

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Overall it is a good listen. The authors calls his tips "secrets". Every time I read or hear somebody call something a secret that ridiculous book of the same name comes to mind. So yes I would chance that.

His insights are not great specially if you read good books about sales before. But the authors wraps them well in a psychological frame.

In chapters 2 and 3 the authors describes Behavior Styles and Core Values, he describes each of them briefly and them proceeds to explain how they interact. But he fails to explain how we can figure out who fits into each category, which would help a lot. Instead the author hints that we need his professional advice on that. Meaning extra service and money on his pocket of course.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Understanding Other People?

The best "secret" of the book is definitely the best one "It's all about me". But I'll the details for who listen to this book.

Was Understanding Other People worth the listening time?

It's was. It's an eye opener but don't expect that all your relationships problems will disappear after reading this book.

Any additional comments?

If you liked this book you should read some sales books as well like the psychology of selling.

Good info wrong presenter

One of the things that make audio books effective for me is that I feel like I'm listening to the author in a one on one setting. Hearing the male voice of the presenter talk about his husband and almost crying after a troublesome conversation was distracting. Otherwise, good material. Nothing revolutionary but a new way of presenting it was enjoyable.
