    Story
    "negation by narration"
    What would have made The Reluctant Entrepreneur: Turning Dreams into Profits better?

    Had the author, or another talent read the work, I imagine I would have been able to stay tuned in for far longer. I assume that Stephen Dexter was contracted to read the book in a certain manner; however, the processing of his voice, the tone, and the speed of delivery contribute to the impression of a speak-and-spell toy from the 1980s.


    If you’ve listened to books by Michael Masterson before, how does this one compare?

    The content is still relevant. Ready, Fire, Aim echoes in this work (kind of a lot), but I feel that I would have personally enjoyed the author presenting this in his own voice.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stephen Dexter?

    Michael Masterson (or relevant pseudonym for narrator).


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment
