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.
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.
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.
