This is the very first book by Malcolm Gladwell that I have not enjoyed.
I thought from the reviews and blurb it would share strategies and ideas on how to better understand others - however this is not the case.
I'm up to chapter 9 - only because I really wanted to persevere - and all I've heard is a condensed history of spies and wrong doers.

Nothing on how to craft a story at all. Only the authors story and not very well crafted at all - quite boring

Not what I was expecting at all - tends to drift on and on and on..................

The idea of the two mindsets - unilateral control and mutual learning - make perfect sense.
no wonder half the time we think we are being good leaders but still wondering about the results we are getting!

I have listened to the first hour and have found this to be very repetitive and the narrators voice is extremely boring - its not for me
