Excellent set of articles - but some things seem to be missing in Audible

The articles provide a lot of insight and I found them to be very helpful. I could relate to a lot of the content and can put much of it to use. I was wary about using a platform like Audible to go through articles like these as I like to read a bit and then stop and think about what I read. I had to unlearn that, and learn how to go back and listen to passages again - sometimes bookmarking these. There are references in the text to sidebars, and I am unsure whether these are actually included in the Audible book. I couldn’t find separate mentions or chapters covering e sidebars. The PDF is helpful, but has a lot of typos in it. I wish that it were proofread before being published.

Feed back from a listener

The book helped understand the areas of competence essential but often missed out by us in our profession. It has been very useful. Will read again in future.

Too theoretical!

This book is mainly about team EQ and group interactions, with a little touch on personal development. The content is too theoretical with minimal useful guidance in my view.

Mostly non-actionable unenlightening anecdotes

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The chapter on Agile Emotional Intelligence was the only chapter worth listening to.
The male narrator was nauseating and I found him unbearable to listen to.

Would you be willing to try another book from Harvard Business Review? Why or why not?

Maybe

Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Larkin and James Edward Thomas ’s performances?

Susan - Yes
James - No Way Sorry

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Worst Monotone Narrator

Total snooze fest. I had to keep rewinding content as I would find myself thinking about something else. The content and case studies were very well chosen and were very meaningful. It's a shame they were narrated in the dullest monotone ive ever heard. Couldn't get through the one and now I want to go and return all the other HBR books I've downloaded.

Informative

I found this book informative and affirming. It reinforced things that I already do and think for the most part. I did not delve into the sidebar material. It's supposed to contain a lot more helpful information.

Dreadful. Waste of money and time.

If you buy any book for emotional intelligence let it be any book but this one. Like sticking your finger in a light socket for 8 hours.

hard to listen to

the voice of the reader sounds so automated. this is a machine I hope. first few chapters were completely common sense. few good notes in the end but really not worth the time of someone with skills in life already
