    "Some great advice mixed with mediocre suggestions"

    I believe the author of the book means well and tries very hard to provide the reader (listener) with helpful advice about schmoozing. In my opinion, he hits the nail on the head with basic rules and ideas about how to treat others and approach people and situations. However, some of the suggestions come across as almost a little too corny to be applied practically.
    The author was quite thorough in bringing attention to the many situations that could benefit from a little proper schmoozing. These situations are not limited to networking and business opportunities, but also include family life, kids, teens, friends and ways to handle situations with these people whether they are positive or negative. Though, I just can't stress how corny some of his detailed suggestions may be. If you are quite cynical, getting through certain parts of this book may prove to be difficult, but that does not mean that it might not be helpful. The ideas may prove to be more enriching than you expected.
    Considering the book is only 3 hours, it's worth a quick listen if you're in between books and think you might be willing enough or able to learn some things about the "art of schmoozing". Overall, I would give the book a 2.5 star rating if I could. Taking the reading of Penn Jilette into consideration though, a 3 seems fair. I can say with confidence that I wouldn't have enjoyed this book as much had it not been read by a friendly and familiar voice such as Penn's.
