4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of great advice, January 11, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nice Girls Don't Get...: The Corner Office/Rich (Audio CD)
I only rated this a 4 because I like to reserve a 5 for truly outstanding things, but don't get me wrong; this was definitely worth my money. There were some mistakes I didn't know were mistakes that I've made, some I see others making, and a few I don't see very often. The advice offered is general and probably not enough to make dramatic differences in anyone's life, but as the old TV show slogan said, "Knowing is half the battle." Awareness is important. It's interesting talking about the points in the book with my husband to hear his take on them. I would suggest finding a good friend (male or otherwise) to discuss them.

I got the audio version so I could listen to it during my long commute. I'm glad my iPod has the ability to back up so I could re-hear some points, because they were worth hearing again. Part of me wants to have the print version so I can quickly locate and review some parts. I don't have time to figure out what the audio tracks should be named so I'm stuck with "track 1, track 2" etc. Providing a play list with the CD's would help.

The book suggests reading just a "mistake" or two, focusing on applying the advice to your life, and then moving on to the next "mistake." That does't work so well when listing to an audio book during a 1 hour commute, where I can hear the whole book through in four days. I plan to listen to it again after several months. If you don't have time to read the print version, the audio version is certainly better than not listening/reading this at all.
