    "Great content, awful narration"

    The content is fantastic - I began applying concepts immediately. Unfortunately, this narrator has ruined several books in my collection with his boring delivery and smug enunciation.

    "Good content, terrible narration"

    Very monotonous and painful to listen to. Excellent content, however. I've already begun incorporating techniques into my management. Thank you

    "Great book, narration needs a do over"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is easily one of the best coaching books on the market - for me its the coaching bible. I like to maximize my time and listen to a lot of audiobooks whilst tending to household chores and when commuting. I have the paper copy but wanted an audiobook for repetitive learning benefits whilst mobile but I found this audiobook seriously difficult to keep up with due to the narration style - too fast for me to digest. I would even go as far to say I found it exhausting at times. Perhaps it would be okay if when listening to it in a deeply focused manner.If I was rating the book it would get 5. If I was rating the narration, for me, a 1.
