I'm sorry. I've never written a review for an audiobook and rarely take the time to write a review unless I am concerned for other safety or significant investment. Out of any review I've ever done this one is by far the most significant!
Brian Tracy is by far a brilliant salesman and knows his material, but he should NEVER record anything on tape; ever! He sounds like he is constantly licking his lips, drinking a slurpy or has a dog who sitting next to him drooling over a box of treats. It's horrific. I simply couldn't take it after 10 minutes. I had to turn it off... I've listened to over 150 audiobooks and have mustered through the good, bad and mediocre. I just couldn't take this one. I wanted to tell him to take his mouth away from the microphone, take a drink and stop eating his pudding cup. PLEASE, save yourself and just read the text.
While it was a decent listen and I don't regret the time spent (albeit I listen during my commute), it wasn't something I gained a lot out of. The book is written much like a horoscope; keep the concept wide, provide few specifics and everyone can find a way to say, "yeah, that makes sense." Kawasaki does a decent job of discussing start-ups and how to get the ball rolling, but I would argue that he could have achieved much more if he would have targeted a niche audience and written from that perspective. He opted to increase sales rather than reach a target...
