Not better. If you will only get one or the other, you need to get the book. However, using both print and audio is great.
No. It is useful listening to a section and having some time to reflect before listening to the next section.
Absolutely. The points in the book are the type that require an occasional refresh since the situations occur in the lifecycle of a business.
The realization by the pie store owner that she loved to make pies and was less motivated to be a pie tycoon.
An engaging voice and style kept my attention. I listened to this over some multi-hour car trips and it kept me engaged throughout.
Days in the life of an entrepreneur
The book primarily orients on retail product businesses. I found a lot less useful information for a non-retail services entrepreneur.
Maybe, but not strongly. This is the type of book that fills some hours with a reasonable return on investment. It exposes the listener to the thoughts of some extremists they might not experience otherwise.
The story of the British jihadi. The others groups/individuals were also interesting.
There is a degree of humor to the reading and situations that would probably be lost if not performed by the author.
From off-the-wall to dangerous
Readers who find Ronson through the movie 'Men who stare at goats' should proceed cautiously with the rest of his work. Listen to one. If you don't like the style, stop. They are all very similar in tone and delivery, only the subject matter changes and Ronson's style tends to be about making the mundane interesting, which he is not always able to accomplish.
Probably not. If someone really wants to read/listen, they should get this from the library.
Not sure it is fixable since it is autobiographical.
Nothing that I can think of.
There were a few either novel or interesting points.
The analogies were certainly dated and most not that compelling. For a person that prided himself for fairness, it is interesting that Mr. Huntsman choose to name so many names and cast others in a negative light. The streams of platitudes got tiresome for me. While I'm sure Mr. Huntsman is as great as he and others think he is, his story is probably better captured in an article or chapter and not as the subject for an entire book.
A real story
The story was far fetched and only marginally interesting
Focus on another story
This might have made an interesting 30 minute or 1 hour story. It was appropriate as an anecdote not a full-length story.
Even Ronson fans (as I am) should avoid this one.
No. The level of detail was sometimes mind-numbing and would be intolerable for a second listen.
The narrator was entertaining.
Having not read the book, I couldn't say.
The number and variety of suspects.
A worthwhile listen, but the sometimes excruciating level of detail was not really appropriate for an audiobook.
The editor needed to reduce the exposition and explanatory sections and focus on the storyline.
The priest's story was interesting. I would have preferred to hear more vignettes about actual exorcisms.
It is unfortunate that so many authors don't realize that they don't have an entertaining speaking voice. Coupled with a storyline that often provided too much explanation and background, the authors nasal tone made it easy for me to lose focus.
The line of thinking that procrastination is a symptom and the discussion of causes was helpful. Unlike similar books, the author beat each topic to death. The methodical, repetitive style made it very difficult to stay engaged.
Doubtful. I've got to believe there are better books.
I didn't care for the performance. The monotone and the plodding pace get very frustrating. Dr Fiore would be served well by hiring a narrator (and an editor).
