Businessman, Technologist, Marketer. Loves to learn and enjoys books. Mostly nonfiction plus historic novels.
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
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
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.
