    In her hilarious New York Times best seller You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again, Heather McDonald recounted her adventures as an unwilling virgin in Hollywood. Now happily married with three wonderful kids, she shows that life as a grown-up - even a pretend grown-up - has its challenges. Heather’s a working mom with parents who live next door, a sister who keeps asking for one of her still-fertile eggs, and friends who are up to more hijinks than even Heather can handle.

    What would have made My Inappropriate Life better?

    I'm sure Mrs. McDonald tells an amusing anecdote in person or on tv, but when she stretches a humorous moment out to a 10-minute book chapter it loses all of it's entertainment value. This book is like an extended version of the "what I did last summer" essay written by a half-clever high school kid.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Heather McDonald again?

    I've been an Audible customer practically since the site began and read a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, humor and more serious offerings. This is the first book I've ever downloaded that I didn't finish. It's just not worth the time.

    We've all had experience with two dramatically different types of leaders. The first type drain intelligence, energy, and capability from the ones around them and always need to be the smartest ones in the room. These are the idea killers, the energy sappers, the diminishers of talent and commitment. On the other side of the spectrum are leaders who use their intelligence to amplify the smarts and capabilities of the people around them.

    John says: "Learn how to not strip your productivity away."
    "Fantastic as farce!"

    Story
    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The book crept along in the standard, "some leaders are better than others" formula, until about midway when, in an apparent attempt to jump on to the bandwagon of a certain newly elected US President, the author decided to heap the highest praise on the untested leader. With today's hindsight on how insightful, inclusive, inspiring leadership has been such a particular, and acute failure for the man, the section reads like a sudden punchline to a very long joke you've been lured into.
