To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really like this series of books. There each contains 10 articles on the subject. So perfect for dipping into and reading an article a day. They each introduce related concepts but its not as connected and guided as a book that was specifically written as chapters that build on each other. Many of the articles are available in some form on the HBR website but I found having them in a compact easy to read paper format helped me stay focused on the topic I wanted to learn more about.
All my colleagues at the my ‘Industrial-organizational psychologist consultancy agency’ have unanimously agreed that this book is does not deliver. We got the impression that it was a quick money grab and had no regard in terms of value for the reader.
We would advise you to save your money, however ultimately the choice is yours.
The Emotional Intelligence series by HBR is a great place to start about a topic of interest. Most authors have their own books on the topics they discuss in these series, so you can deepen your knowledge if a certain topics interest you particularly. Nevertheless, just reading the articles is educative enough.
This is a powerful guide that explains how to be more influential. I am satisfied with this book and I feel like it enriches my vision about influence. I definitely recommend this book to everybody and If you are interested to read more about Influence I do recommend to read "The secret of Influence: Mastering the Art of Inspirational Leadership" as well.
