Through warm and engaging conversations, we hear Howard’s timeless and practical lessons on pursuing success and fulfillment, beginning with:
Listening to Howard’s Gift is like having a wise, caring friend sit down and say, "let’s figure all this out together."

“This work offers wonderful wisdom for navigating the inflection points in our lives.” (Mehmet Oz, MD)
“This book is truly a gift for all those seeking fulfilling careers.” (Wendy Kopp, Founder & CEO, Teach For America)
The reading voice chosen for this book borders on painful. But the content is extraordinary in its value to any of us trying to live a life of meaning and balance while always trying to get better at enjoying the world and changing the world.
narration was too distracting. instead of allowing the writing to express ideas, the narrator's over the top attempt at impersonating made the listening experience awful.
the tips or lessons were generic and too forever to get more specific.
keep narration of non fiction books simple so that content can be optimally expressed.
I'm certain that Howard's wisdom was passed along to many of his students. However, this biographical story lacks any real depth or significant ideas. I just kept waiting, expecting a gem or two of real wisdom. Just not there. Very disappointed in the purchase.
Less affectation with his voice.
It just passed some time while I was on the road, but I was very disappointed that it lacked any depth or interesting concepts and ideas.
As for Howard's Wisdom, I guess you had to be there in person to see the magnificence.
