Would you take life advice from a comedian?
Well, you should. I really enjoyed this audio book. It is one of those you don't want to end. It is enjoyable and funny. More importantly, it tells a rich story with tons of practical advice for your life, no matter your profession or life stage.
Like me, you probably won't agree with everything. But even on those few points I did not agree with, I enjoyed listening to the story and it made me think. Not bad for a comedian. I have a lot more respect for Scott Adams and might buy more of his books.
This could be a great gift book too. Recommended
If you like Seth Godin's book, this is an audiobook you will enjoy. Mind you: there is no theme or central idea. This seems like simply a compillation of popular blog post read by Seth. Good content, just not extraordinary
It's a long book, but it is enjoyable and full of practical knowledge for anyone who gives speeches, leads teams, presents in front of large audiences, is a spokesperson or is a master of ceremonies.
Every key point in the book is illustrated with plenty of examples from recognized leaders. You may have heard about some of these skills before, but you will surely learn a trick or two that will make worth your investment (time and money) in this book.
I really like Zig Ziglar’s message, I find it positive and inspiring.
This audiobook is a part of a larger series, but here is the rub, Audible does not make it clear what books make-up the entire series and what order they should be read in. So listening to just this book makes me feel incomplete, like there is something important missing, like I don’t have the entire story.
Although I feel unsatisfied with this book, I did enjoy listening to it and will probably get another book or two that will hopefully be a part of the series, maybe someday I will actually get the entire message.
