    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't think of a particular audience who would enjoy this book. One of the problems was that it was scattered and unfocused and pardon my pun, simplistic.It seems like there are the beginnings of two or three good books contained in the ideas of this book. However, the authors need to decide to focus and develop these.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Alan Siegel and Irene Etzkorn again?

    Probably not, there really wasn't a whole lot of meaningful content in this book, it seemed like the authors were just trying to capitalize on a fad.


    What didn’t you like about Fleet Cooper’s performance?

    He did this weird thing whenever he was quoting another person. He would take on this creepy voice almost like Jack Donaughy's nemesis in 30 rock.


    What character would you cut from Simple?

    I would probably start with the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, save your credit and skip this one. There's a ton of great information on simplicity on the web. This book has neither depth nor breath and therefore offers nothing above and beyond what you can find with a simple Google search.
