    Thank God for Audible. I've been listening to it during my hour and half drive every morning and evening. So far, I'm finding it very interesting and an easy listen. Just realized that leaving my job is going to put a real hurt on my reading plan.

    Same here! I enjoy listening to my audiobooks when commuting because I get to observe the beautiful scenery and surroundings. Sometimes I feel that the iPhone is a terrible invention, and other times I feel it is a $35k masterpiece (in 90s value). iPhones have a ton of value for their price if they are harnessed correctly and you put the right content in your feeds. By the way, what chapter are you on?

    Just started listening Monday, so not too far into the book yet. Just learned about offer and retreat...that sneaky Boy Scout. :)

    Yeah, whoever came up with that Boy Scout script is clever. I'm currently on Chapter Two, intending to finish the book soon. My favorite part in the book is when he talks about the "automatic tapes" that we have in our mind and are unaware of. Another interesting cognitive bias is that many people perceive expensive items as being good. Good listen so far.

    Still working my way through this book but, OMG! To learn why compliance pros have had their way with me all these years is scary. It's fascinating to have this explained based on scientific study and understanding. If I only remember a quarter of this - and put it to work on offense or defensive - it will easily make the purchase price worth it. (is that too many "it" in one sentence?)
