I didn't mind the listen but...

The author basically relates how story telling is the moving force in getting the intended audience to act. He then goes through a number of business and non-business scenarios in which story telling saved the day. Although I agree with the author that storytelling is important, I think the book would have been more helpful if it delved into the techniques that are best used to move the desired audience to act and how to implement them. I enjoyed the listen but would have enjoyed it more if I had more techniques to carry away from it.

Incredable material! Great 3hr book, 10hr Listen#%

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you are responsible for communication any an kind; you must read this book! The lessons discussed in this tome are incredible, they must be studied, notated, memorized, and put into action in your daily life. Those that take the lessons to heart will substantially increase their success.

What could Peter Guber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Peter Guber, aka "Pete the name dropper Gubber" was best when the story used to relay a point was third party. Pete,… REALLY?? You run around with Millionaires, Billionaires, and the so-called political elite... So does the bell hop at the Four Seasons!

The whole book reeked of narcissism!

If you ever do a rewrite, lift up someone else and you’ll be lifted with them!

What about Patrick Egan’s performance did you like?

The Narration was very good!

I know this is a book about telling stories...

I realize this is a book about storytelling to make a point, but too much time was spent name dropping. I did find the stories interesting, but I would have preferred more time spent on the nuts and bolts

Hated This Book

I read the other reviewer who attributes the lack of stars to the narrator. I'm not so sure. I thought the content was lacking. The "stories" seemed a little trite for the CEO of Sony America...I didn't like this book at all.

Now, there is a caveat. I generally don't care for books written by CEOs. They are generally pretty self-centered books and they gloss over much of the real grit of business. So, me? I didn't like the book but maybe I'm biased.

Good Content - Awful Narrator

I've been a huge fan of Peter Guber for years, but this version would have been a magnitude better had he narrated it himself. The content is first rate, but it's difficult to listen to due to the voice talent. Patrick Egan is a sleep inducing automaton. I'll never buy another audio book narrated by this guy.

good information, too long, lots of name dropping

I thought this book was interesting, but it was too long. It could have been written in about half the amount of pages. There was lots of name dropping so lots of recognition and relatability. Information provided is worthwhile but from a contacts not very many people could find you so I think.
