Fantastic Content

The content in this book is fantastic, however, the narrator is a bit frustrating to listen to as he pauses in the weirdest places and makes it difficult to follow along at times without the text to read along with. However, it was great being able to 'read' all the content in this book while on a long drive - there are definitely plenty of things that I will now implement after this book.

More sales than story

The concepts were good but he spent way too much time selling. Ruined the book for me.

Great content, just very repetitive

SO you have great information but the book probably could have been cut down by half. I don't know why you have to tell the same information multiple times with multiple examples. Its not rocket science.

Would have enjoyed more practical tips.

I think this is an important concept to practice in the workplace and/or athome with your friends and family. However, I would have enjoyed more concrete tips regarding how to approach certain scenarios or a few basic steps, phrases to say, or reminder thoughts to think right at the beginning as you begin to implement the concepts. The last chapter of the books says they sent bi-weekly prompts to a team starting to use appreciation in the workplace and saw significant results but it didn't offer any of those prompts as a mere starter. Some advise was dispersed throughout the statistics and broad discussion, and those were appreciated, but they felt few and far between.

Contradictive

Some facts presented as 45 to 55% and then the authors tries to state that how many more the 55% is representative. some quotes were completely self contradictory as though the editing was sub par.

Apply this right away!

I loved this extremely logical and objective outline of how to effect positive change in a work environment (really ALL work environments!). I bought a hard copy so I can bookmark the points that are relevant to my work place and will be passing it along. The whole book is loaded with valuable data and identifies as many obstacles as possible. Highly recommend!

Great book!

Such a great book on how to show appreciation in the workplace! For me this is the 5 love languages but for the workplace because it’s emphasis is appreciation which I believe is most fitting for the work type of relationships. Love it!

Maybe better as a book than an audible.

This has some really amazing and inspiring ideas, but I would describe the narration cadence here as choppy. I would enjoy reading the book more I think, although I'm also committed to listening to the end. I want to buy the book and re-study the many survey results; to me, those are kind of hard to process while listening and driving in a big city. The authors did their homework and this well-presented evidence peppers every chapter. Also, it's the kind of evidence that you want to pass on to others, especially if you are wanting to create a workplace where people thrive and grow.
