This is a good, concise, and highly listenable consolidation of great books such as The Seven Habits, The Four Agreements, etc.
For newbies to these worlds this book is great - Five Stars.
For others it's a good rehearsal for these materials.
The performance was pretty good. Tough when you're given this type of material though.
I always have a hard time when someone touts the "3 Laws" or "10 behaviors", etc. that will lead to everlasting success. As if everything can be boiled down to a simple formula free of nuance. A previous review stated that they can't tell you what the three laws are. Honestly, I can't either! I made it through a quarter of this book and couldn't get myself to finish it and you'd think I could tell you what the first law is ... but I can't!I knew this would be a slog when the authors preface stated that the book is based on experiences, not studies. To give you some perspective, I tend to prefer books with relevant stories backed by data (think Dan Pink or Malcom Gladwell). This book has mediocre stories backed by no data.The advice is so cluttered with buzzwords and nonsense that it's almost unreadable (or listenable). If you like self-help books or Dr. Phil then you will probably love this book (not joking). Some people really eat this stuff up. It's just not for me.
Made it more readable. Very Herky-Jerky both with it's timeline and thought process. It would have been nice, for example, if they had clearly stated the 3 laws; they NEVER did, not once. I was always loosely described in a sentence and differently each time.
Maybe, if I thought they weren't in touch with reality.
Loosened up. Very rigid, sounds like he's reading it for the first time. I have this problem with a lot of Audible Narrators. You wouldn't think it'd be that hard to get someone to just read a book nice and evenly.
Dear god, no, unless they were trying to anesthetize the audience.
