Well Worth the Time

You might argue that Chris Voss put forward more ideas in his popular book “Never Split the Difference”. But if you aspire to make those ideas a part of your life, and not just something you’ve read, you might need to spend some time with Derek. “Ego Authority Failure” gives you the opportunity to absorb those key ideas with real human examples, and challenges you to start practicing them, so that you can see the results for yourself.

big let down...

i had purchased this book as the black swan group had heavily promoted it. i was expecting alot more real life examples and HOW TO segments on applying the techniques taught in that book to leadership scenarios however there were close to none. only the last 3 chapters cover a few of the concepts from never split the difference book. the rest if the book is just like a rehash of leadership theories and concepts. its dry and boring if you are looking for the real ' how to' of leadership. So as others said dont expect much and save your money and just relisten to the chris voss book never split the difference. this book is a waste of time.
