I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks on all sorts of topics, but this one deserves special mention. It is the second worst audiobook I've ever listened to. I could only take about two hours of the nonstop, self-obsessed whining before I had to turn it off.
The whole point? Life is hard at a flashy startup and the company is run by a charismatic leader. Imagine that! Struggles and confusion in a rapidly growing company? And how strange to find a charismatic leader ... uh ... leading the company.
Like the author, I am an actor as well and am also a huge fan of satire, but even professional curiosity could not keep me interested in this work!
Oh, and don't let the kiddies hear this one unless you plan on explaining to them why a grown man fondling himself on a stage is considered 'art'. What's that you say? What does that have to do with Amazon.com? I have absolutely no idea, but it's in there nonetheless.
All in all, there are a few interesting moments, but they are certainly not worth the time it takes to get there. This is a book in desperate need of a serious editor with a great big ax.
