    "Meandering"

    There are some important points made in this audiobook, particularly in the summary, but it takes awhile to get to the good parts. I found myself lost and confused more than once.

    Story
    "Poorly recorded unstructural speech."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The topic is interesting to me as an entrepreneur. However, the recording quality was so poor it practically made my ears ache.The performance was dull (it's a lecture after all). The points raised in the speech can be found in many other similar titles nowadays. It is very easy for me to discourage anyone buying this audio book, perhaps even to the speaker himself.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It doesn't seem a worthy investment to my money and, more importantly, my time. I would listen to something else.

    "Thinking about why we should speak"

    Disappointed in the other reviewers comments. I thought this lecture was great. There are hundreds of tips and tricks books on speaking but few on why it matters. This audio recording helped me a lot and I have used it to help other friends design more meaningful talks.
