I listened to this in one sitting, finding it both poetic and heartbreaking.

This book reminds me of my white privilege and gives me hope that I'll continue to be part of the solution and not the problem.

Thank you Claudia Rankine

This book is a workbook for a six week course which helps you to change your mindset from fear/ego to love/insight. I've read it three times. I've bought the kindle version, the hard copy and every book Gabby has ever written.

Powerful stuff.

Wonderful, life changing book

Good summary but appears to be poorly edited as the reader just repeats sentences if she makes what seems to be a mistake.

Great story telling

If you could sum up The Like Switch in three words, what would they be?

Learn to INFLUENCE and READ OTHERS

What other book might you compare The Like Switch to, and why?

I read Robert Cialdini's "Influence" prior and this book was the perfect follow on from it

What does George Newbern bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Expression and tone.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I've been using the concept of "Friend" or "Foe" signs and have noticed that people are much more responsive to me (and vice versa). I've also noticed body language a lot more- I feel like I've been given keys to the human mind.

Any additional comments?

Another book that should be required reading.

What did you like most about Big Magic?

Liz Gilbert is practical AND inspired... she uses story telling to get to the heart of lessons learned over her career. I also love that the book is read by the author. She has a wonderful voice. I've listed to this twice and bought the book for others.

What did you like best about this story?

It's honest.

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Gilbert’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've seen her speak live and I also enjoyed Elizabeth Gilbert's pod casts. Love her work. This book is specific to creativity. It's a guidebook for living a creative life. (I'm not going to say self help...)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I'll be using her analysis of fear in my coaching and training.
