    "The narrator is very irritating"

    It's impossible to concentrate when the narrator sounds like he is getting over a cold and has a stuffy nose. He slurs on some words and feels like he is rushing through the book. The narrator needs to work on his own communication skills...I stopped listening after chapter 1.

    "Really good book"

    Wasn't exactly what I was looking for but a good book nonetheless. I have listened to a book by this author before about emotional intelligence. One of the greatest books I have ever read. I was just looking for something different book. I was a little disappointed that the same error made in the other book by the audio reader was present in this book as well.

    "Recommended"

    The beginning is very interesting and keeps you glued to it.

    Somewhere in the middle it got very monotonous, as if he was reading a very long list from a sheet, and I had to fast forward.

    But besides that the book was great and definitely covered more than what I was expecting.

    A book that I would recommend to close friends.

    "Very useful book"

    This book is a concentrate of many self-development books I have read. It contained some of the most helpful ideas and tips I have come across. The pace of the reader makes it easier to follow the content read.
