The story format is very smart. It teaches you the list you will take away in a 3 prone approach.
The Narrative: 3-4 hours
John's Experience: ~1 hour
Ted's Tips: ~5 min
It lets you connect "the list" to different scaffolding from the first two portions so it is easier for me to recall the list and more importantly recognize when they are present.
Thank you for making this advice detailed and specific enough to be meaningful and yet simple enough to apply. Also, by telling us what you were thinking when you had to make decisions you didn't want to make helps me relate to you and trust the path.
The advice in the book is given through a fictional narrative of a person adapting and then selling his company. Very good for putting you into the shoes of someone in such a scenerio. Advice is fairly obvious though most people wouldn't neccesarily think about the points he brings up.
A lot of reviews have been complaining about the narrator. I agree he speaks very slowly and that would be annoying to listen to. However, pushing the play speed up to 1.5x or more fixes the issue entirely.
This is one of the most enjoyable books i have listened to so far.
The story was actually entertaining while still bestowing absolutely essential knowledge upon the listener. I found myself wanting to keep listening not only because i wanted to continue to learn from the book, but also because i wanted to know how the story would end.
I know the performer has gotten alot of harsh words in reviews, but i can honestly say it didn't bother me much. You pay close attention to anything annoying about his voice for the first chapter solely because all the reviews are pointing it out as a negative, but by chapter 2 i didn't care about it at all. Don't miss out on this great book. The performance is not that bad,
Great story and very insightful. I found the narrators voice a little annoying and distracting but otherwise an excellent book thats very direct and helpful!
