Made me think. Would have been much better if I were listening at home or reading a paperback so I could do the exercises which would help me remember and implement the principles.
Narration was okay. Sounds like he may have been reading his own book. That's probably the only way to get the enthusiasm he has for this subject across.
Maybe a distilled version. As with most books, the take aways could be boiled down to about 10% of the volume.
Very practical approach
Not gimmicky like it sounds
More resources listed than you could ever remember. It would probably be a good idea to buy the hard copy of this book for that reason.
I will definitely read this one again.
The idea of defining every detail of how to do your business resonated with me. I believe that defining roles and documenting processes then using objective metrics to evaluate your business is a great way to grow. It allows you to understand what works and what doesn't and leads you to ways to make your business even more effective.
I will probably read this one again.
He suggested writing a sentence then writing a series of numbers and timing how long it takes to do it. Now write the first letter of the sentence followed by the first number in the series and go back and forth until you finish and record the time. It takes MUCH longer to do it the second way. That's a very tangible way to convince people to design their work time to happen in focused sessions without interruptions.
That also makes the point that multitasking is not a real thing. A better word is switch-tasking. You can only really do one thing at a time and most of the time its more time efficient to finish one thing before starting another. I've noticed how much time I waste switch-tasking. This book was worth the read.
I bought this to try to understand introverts better. It started out good citing studies and giving some good general information. Later chapters were unfocused and very boring. She even gets into how an introvert should approach dating. The last half of the book was too subjective to hold my interest.
Narration was fine
Drop the last half to two thirds of the book and it would be a great book.
