  1. Very clear and well done. I find your summery explanations very efficient and effective.
    Thanks for sharing your valuable quality knowledge.
    Peace prosper.

  2. This is great stuff , truly an awakening for anyone that wants to take leadership to the next level , your a sharp guy and much respect for your courage in posting and the sincerity in which you spoke.

  3. Tonally, dude. However, there's no artful way to pretend to be interested in a sport or activity that you've heard about 20 times and still don't understand or care about. You smile and nod – but that's hardly artful.

  4. I know that there is no such thing as death. I knew this when I was around 8 years old. But nobody believed me.
    In my 20's I found quantum physics books. The simplest sentence describing physics is "protons spin as positive charges and electrons spin as negative charges". This sentence reflects the field of electricity, too. And also the field of medicine. But medicine doesn't concentrate on how people are full of atoms which spin as charges — 100%
    Everything everywhere spins and rotates and oscillates and vibrates as atoms which are electrical magnetic energy field vibrations. SO ! Has anyone anywhere ever heard of electricity as being effected by what are called germs or viruses or death?
    No? We are 100% energy and electrical and vibrational. WE do not die and we are not susceptible to what are called germs and viruses. So who started this myth that says we are?

  5. Thank you for posting this. Like you, I revisit this book every couple years. The messages in it have changed my life. I am teaching a Multicultural Communication class this semester and we are spending two lecture on this book. Great summary of the book with practical examples.

  7. Hey Joseph!

    Just a feedback, it would be great if you could move the tabel of contents a little bit to the right so we could see it during the video.
    Once again thank you!

  8. I had my first impression down. But this video made me very clear. I will not judge the book by it's cover ever. Thank you.

  9. Joe, this point you make here 10:36 is so huge for Youtube success. You can't tell people what they want. You must bend like a reed in the wind to provide what most people want. HUGE HUGE! I love this video my friend. Best wishes.

  10. I subscribed your channel after watching your first video, you really influence able coz I might subscribe any YouTube channel, I found the thing is that not need to read whole book after watching your video. Good job dude, keep it up ??
