Overall there is good info but I have a few problems with it.

The title and book description were misleading.

Lee restates the same topics over and over again in each chapter. Basically “do your best” “have integrity” and “never stop learning.” It could be ¼ the length and still incorporate the necessary information he was trying to convey. Interesting anecdotes but reads more like a biography than a book about “how to achieve a stellar career.” Ironic because Lee states several times how he has learned to be straight forward with information.

I find the point of view a bit unrealistic. Hindsight is 20/20 and everything looks better from the future when we can understand why things happen. The way the anecdotes and stories are constructed make it seem as if there was a master plan only to be turned upside down in the last chapter when he states “nothing was planned and I’m surprised at my career and success.” It’s confusing and basically discredits the entire book. Lee also discredits everything in the first chapter in much the same way.

Good, relatable voice performance except the audio fades out a lot and then picks back up. Must be where the recording is cut??? It’s aggravating and leads me to believe something is wrong with the app or my earphones when it’s actually the recording. Every few minutes the fades have me reaching for my iPod only to have the recording pick up again.
