I listen to audiobooks while I drive to and from work. I started listening to this book because the description intrigued me although I am unfamiliar ..Show More »with the authors work in general. My commute is 30 min, one way. After I drove into the parking structure and had to go into work, I couldn't get out. I kept telling myself 5 more minutes, or one more chapter.
