Shatner-esque performance detracts from content.

It's as though the Earth was the narrator's second planet.

Too many platitudes — tigers, destiny, ivory towers, oh, my!

"Ask good questions." Well, if you're an idiot, this is kind of tough, isn't it? **What** is a good question?

Astrology logic: "You have determination and grit, but aren't pushy. You are passionate, but have self control. Look for romance when Taurus crosses Saturn."

Incoherent structure.

Based on Bill Fisher's three-day seminars that regularly sell out all over the world, this audiobook offers the kind of capital-raising street smarts no entrepreneur can do without. As a banker in Silicon Valley in the '80s and a businessman who founded a number of successful companies beginning in the '90s, Fisher has seen firsthand the kind of rookie mistakes aspiring entrepreneurs make that end up stopping them before they have a chance to get started.

Where does The Six Secrets of Raising Capital rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Impressive. Top 2%

What did you like best about this story?

I think the story was great … but I was so swamped with details that it was like marching through a blizzard. I got to grandma's just fine, but didn't see much of the road.

Have you listened to any of Allan Robertson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not sure if I've listend to Robertson's other performances. But this was fantastic.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Too many to list.

Any additional comments?

I tried listening to this in the background while I worked. I tried listening in the car. I tried just listening to it. There's way too much in here to take in via audio, unless that's the only way you can learn. I'll probably get the book and mark it all up.

What did you like best about Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life? What did you like least?

At least the first 5 chapters is cheerleading and filler. I haven't gotten out of those, yet. The longer a book hammers, "This book is going to give you a big, swingin' cod if only you believe in the righteous, big, swingin' cod," and doesn't get to the swingin' or the cod, it's hard to keep going.

What could Grant Cardone have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Get to it. For the love of God, just get to it.

What three words best describe Grant Cardone’s voice?

Whatever. Fine.

Was Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life worth the listening time?

If I wasn't listening to this while working, I wouldn't have gotten this far.
