    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    There is no insight or "A-ha!" moments in this book - all very basic, full of fluff. For instance, "If a business needs capital, they should seek investors. Also, consider spending less." Really, really bad.


    Has The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes - and they owe The Four Hour Workweek royalties.


    What does Josh Kaufman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    N/A


    What character would you cut from The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business?

    N/A

    Dr. Glover believes there are men who suffer what he calls the "Nice Guy Syndrome". These men listen, offer advice, and jump at the chance to help. But no matter how hard they try to please others, their own lives are incomplete. Here Dr. Glover offers guidance on how to take back control. He suggests ways to achieve fulfillment in emotional, physical, and professional relationships. By redefining his priorities, any man can create the life he always wanted.

    Gerard says: "Good info but no exercises."
    "Book can be summed up with "don't be a wimp""

    Would you try another book from Robert A. Glover and/or Robert O'Keefe?

    No, absolutely not.


    What was most disappointing about Robert A. Glover’s story?

    The "no s**t, Sherlock" aspects of it. Long-winded, has one central point which is "don't be such a wimp." You can't really elaborate for hours on that subject.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert O'Keefe?

    Some less monotone.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Amazement at how boring it was and obvious.


    Any additional comments?

    Avoid at all costs.

    Story

    Millions of people hate their jobs, or have recently lost one, and would love to start a small business. Yet very few actually try, because the process feels as scary as jumping off a cliff. No matter how boring or stressful a job might be, it's hard to give up a salary and benefits. But for some, it can be the smartest, happiest decision of a lifetime.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. It's primarily the 4 hour workweek recycled. Much of the content is already on the author's blog. Best for complete business noobs to read this.


    What was most disappointing about Pamela Slim’s story?

    The narration.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator sounds like a robot voice on a space station. Female HAL-9000. This lady needs caffeine pronto


    Was Escape from Cubicle Nation worth the listening time?

    Nope. Mainly a Tim Ferriss ripoff


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, the narrator should be listed as "Siri"
