I liked the male narrator. Also, learning some of the back stories of famous people was cool.
I don't read a lot of personal development books...seems like it's probably similar to some of those.
There were no characters, just real people.
It had short chapters, so it was good to listen to in quick shifts.
I got this for free in exchange for an honest review.
I liked that there were a few different voice actors in this one. One of the male actors in particular was really great, but I don't know which one.
It feels kind of cheesy to say, but this book was actually super motivational. I listened to it on my way to work and by the time I got there, I felt ready to give it my all. I'm impressed that the author was able to get interviews with all of these people
The creator of Mad Men guy said some great stuff...I had to look up this line again, but it really stuck with me: "A great idea is worthless; execution is everything. It doesn't matter if you invented Star Wars before Star Wars existed."
I always knew Anderson Cooper was smart and handsome, but I had no idea how much of a BADASS he is. Wow, he's been through a lot and taken a lot of risks to get where he is, which I really respect. CRUSH SOLIDIFIED. And Warren Buffet used to literally throw up if he had to do any public speaking?! lol Love it! Made me feel like I'm not completely lost and still have time to "Get There" too.
