This is a good book if all it does it change your perspective and cause you to rethink your questions before you ask them.
The narrator sounds like a computer generated voice. I found it almost intolerable.
the book did not have enough useful info, it was too long for what is was
there should have been more useful questions
This book is superficial, and way overpriced. Also, too many religious references.
There is little of value here. It's more like a pamphlet you would find in the waiting room of a psychologist's office.
No, absolutely not. The content is decent and can be inspiring, but the narration by one of the authors is so horribly bad that I just stopped listening and never finished the book. I went out and got the print version instead. Another problem with the audiobook is the lack of an index of all the questions.
I never reached the ending.
One of them (I don't know which) was OK, the other was terrible, in fact so bad that I stopped the audiobook.
No. Its structure (many chapters, each on a separate 'power question') means it's best enjoyed in little bites.
I purchased the hard copy for myself and two others, because the other 297 questions are not on the Audible book.

There are definitely some thought provoking questions here that could help someone truly stand out in a personal or professional setting. The stories add interest and context to the questions, and often left me asking questions of my own.
I will definitely be giving this audiobook another listen (or two) to help the information sink in.
While I like the fact that the two authors alternate narrating chapters of the book, one of the authors reminds me a bit of Tommy Chong, which is a bit distracting at times.
Also, it would be nice to have a PDF reference sheet of all the questions to review now and then, rather than having to stop what you're doing and write them down. I started to write them down, and then I realized I had missed questions because I was too engrossed in the stories.
I was already sold on the importance of questions before listening to this audio. While there were some great new questions, it was more the way he presented them that gave me a different angle and made them sink in a little deeper. Highly recommended.
The stories that wrap around each question are great - they illustrate the point so well.
The experience of the authors and the fact that they read the book brings an extra element that I really enjoyed.
I personally enjoyed listening to the stories but will need to purchase a copy of the print book as this is a very important book.
I would include this book on my list of absolute top reads such as The 7 Habits. I will also be reading Mr. Sobel's other books shortly as I hear that All for One is a good read.
This unfortunately is the only one available on Audible.
Ask and you shall receive
I do not often review audio books but felt compelled to do so for this book which I highly recommend.
This could have been 20% of the length. There are superfluous quotations added that get in the way. Many are cliches. All the music lyrics referenced (yes, this is useless) are boomer-era, of course. 1/3 of the stories are helpful. 2/3 are too generic.
cliche' after cliche'
You can play at double speed and not miss a thing. I have never been able to do that w/any other recording.
All I need is the list of questions. skip the audible, just get the kindle version.
