I most often listen to fictional novels but make it a point to read a few books each year that will broaden my knowledge. This one was a great choice as it's well written and uses stories (examples) we can all relate to. The narration was also good where many non-fiction books can be very dry.
You may learn things about yourself (or spouse or others) you hadn't thought of before. It's good insight into why we do things we do, but also talks about how we can change habits we don't like. Overall, I recommend it.
I didn't read the print version, but think I would prefer the audio for the narration. George Guidall does a great job in the Mitch Rapp series and is quite enjoyable to listen to.
The book is similar to others in the Rapp series, and I've yet to become bored with them. If you like David Baldacci action thrillers, you will probably like this set as well.
He pronounces names and places better than I would ever be able to. He also does well at multiple character voices and makes them believable. I've listened to a number of his narrations and enjoyed every one.
Welcome to a terrorist's worst nightmare.
I highly recommend any of Vince Flynn's books. I've read quite a few and enjoyed each one.
I've had a terrible time sleeping the past few months and decided to give this a try. It works some nights and not so much on others. The author's voice is very monotone which probably helps it work more effectively in hypnosis. The price is right, so you don't have much to lose. I know I was willing to try almost anything.
Nothing could have made it a good listening experience. The story is terrible, and it requires listening to more than half the book before you can even begin to translate what the character is saying into real English.
The book is filled with completely useless violence, but worse than that is being unable to understand what's being said. The dialect is some warped form of English that I couldn't understand.
OK at best.
I can't think of any redeeming qualities.
The whole time I listened (painfully), I kept thinking of the credit I had wasted and how I could have been listening to a book I would actually enjoy. I thought this was supposed to be a classic, but I was completely wrong.
