Good concepts but the reader is a little difficult to listen to. Weird pauses in the middle of sentences make or hard to follow. H s got some sort note system and you can hear keyboard clicks through the whole article. But the concepts are good and good info to have.
This was the worst audio book I have heard. I have read several other books by Daniel Goleman and I appreciated the content of this book, the stilted performance mixed with bad editing made it almost impossible to understand the thought process of the book. I would recommend this title but I would suggest reading it and not listening to it.
Good content but repeated itself in a fee ocasions. Narrator was not good. It seemed the narration was never edited.
