    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    Lindblad says: "An amazing insight to the brain"
    "TERRIBLE LISTEN"
    Overall

    This book is a terrible listen. The narrator emphasises every 4-6 syllables for no reason. It is DIFF-icult to FOL-low a-LONG when the NAR-rator TALKS like THIS for the en-TI-re BOOK. If im-POR-tant THOU-ghts were EM-phasised, or if he RE-ad it like a NOR-mal PER-son, I think I would have en-JOY-ed it much MO-re.

    Very, very unfortunate. I also feel like the analogy of the mind being a stage, and the audience members are the pieces of your memory, to be a bit of a stretch and difficult to follow.

    I've listened to several other books from Audible and have enjoyed them very much - Getting Things Done, Making Things Stick, The Tipping Point - but this book was just such a difficult listen that I have had a hard time finishing it, let alone trying to extract any usable information from it.
