Management, Motivation und Menschenführung: Französisch Titelbild

Geldmacherei

Gesamt
1 out of 5 stars

Rezensiert am: 18.02.2012

Etwas weniger als die Hälfte dieses Buches ist eine Erklärung der Birkenbihl methode (auf deutsch) und silben-für-silben (also langsam) gesprochene Einstiegslektionen (Mein Name ist... Freut mich Sie kennen zu lernen) in Französisch, Italienisch, Spanisch und Englisch.
Der Inhalt des Kurses ist platt und kaut nur anderes Material wieder. Ich empfehle die Primärliteratur zu lesen/hören.
Die technische Umsetzung ist schlampig: mindestens ein gesprochener dialog wird mitten im Satz abgebrochen ohne nachträgliche Erklärung. Ein anderer hat die Hintergrundgeräusche so laut und die Sprache so leise, dass es unmöglich ist (völlig unmöglich - nicht nur sehr schwierig) den text zu verstehen.

Mein Rat: Finger weg. Dieses "Hörbuch" ist Geldmacherei. Ich wünschte, Audible würden einfach mehr französische Hörbücher ins Angebot nehmen.

Motivating like usual - but.....

This book contains a strong message as usual with Ziglar. He also does a good job with delivering this and as usual stories from the christian background help him to make his points - and there is nothing wrong with that.
However, especially the third part of the book feels more like an aggressive misionar's story to me: he states clearly that a "better than good life" is not possible when you are not with god - that means: non christian. He also states that no other religion provides the promise of saving after dead and that this puts the Christian religion apart from (or rather: above of) all others. He also spends roughly 30 minutes of explaining why he does not believe in evolution and why the 'science' of creationism must be right. He uses Behe's Mousetrap argument against evolution which has never had any persuasive power on me.

I have listened to other books of Mr Ziglar in the past, and I always felt his earthly advices were good and valid for anybody with a proper ethic - no matter what the believes are. But I feel this one goes overboard with a near fundamentalism (or dogmatic as he calls it in the acknowledgements) approach to religion. I conclude for myself, that Mr. Ziglar becomes too fundamentalistic as he approaches a higher age and I will no longer recommend his newer books - I instead suggest to stick with the older ones, they are very good.

An important message. But only one.

Seth's Message is to invest yourself more in what you do today. Break rules if you feel this is better for your company and the people you work with. I agree with this message and Godin is very passionate about it, so this is all well and good.

But: the text is unclearly structured. Very short chapters or paragraphs with partially disagreeing messages, some examples, some personal stories, some believes of Mr. Godin. It is often unclear where he's going in his narrative and he seems to be jumping quite often.

While this book is motivational in itself, I feel others send a similar message with more substance (i.e. Covey) or with more motivational power (i.e. Ziglar). I suggest skipping this book for any the other authors.
