Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von The Art of Possibility für besser als das Buch?
I enjoyed listening to this audio book.
I decided to buy it after I had seen the very inspiring TED talk by Benjamin Zander on classical music's potential to inspire "happy shining eyes". If you've seen the TED talk you will find refind some of the stories and metaphors familiar.
The book is a cooperation by Mr. Zander and his wife Rosamund Stone Zander. Both read chapters covering different "practices" that can be applied to approach life in a more positive and open way vs. in a spirit of competitiveness and scarcity.
The spirit of the book is very upbeat. It is very well produced. I enjoyed listening to it and I particularly loved the insertion of classical music pieces at relevant times. (I might be a little bit biased though as I am a big classical music and Mahler fan)
The book is certainly not as paradigm-shifting as other (business) classics as the 7 habits of highly effective people might be for example, however, I found myself already applying some of their practices ("like giving the A") in a professional context as a manager of small teams in the business world and can highly recommend the book as a basis for some reflective walks in the park to reconsider some existing beliefs that we might have.
Welcher Moment von The Art of Possibility ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?
Some of the stories are truly remarkable and show the impact we as people can have if we have the openness and willingness to go out there and try to do new things.
Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?
