I was absolutely transported with the writing and the perfect narration. I'm now one of the many Neil Gaiman fans anxious for more!

I knew this would at least be good based on interviews with the author and his other books. But wow! Total shift in my thinking and approach to life after listening to this.

Equal parts serious and humorous to education

What did you love best about Don't Sniff the Glue?

Don't Sniff the Glue goes well beyond a call for education reform or even insights into teaching. This book is for parents, teachers, mentors - anyone who has the opportunity to have a positive impact on our children.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Don't Sniff the Glue?

So many moments. Dawn uses her perspective from the front lines of teaching to not blast the system, but to shine a spotlight on how important teaching is to our kids and why people in the system need to be shaken into reality (and into this century) to make sure we're empowering our teachers to do all they can possibly do.

Let the brainstorming begin!

If you could sum up Epic Content Marketing in three words, what would they be?

Tactical. Inspiring. Insightful.

What did you like best about this story?

So strategic in its approach. An absolute how-to that makes it obvious that even the smallest company can go out and create epic content.

Which scene was your favorite?

Case studies were probably my favorite aspect of the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did want to, even though I wasn't able to. I did immediately restart it after it was done and started going through it again. That speaks highly about how much great information is in there.

Any additional comments?

This book is packed with amazingly useful, tactical steps to becoming a Content Marketing Superstar. I bought this Kindle version after listening to the audio version (which I'm listening to again, by the way). Every chapter had my brain cranking out ideas of how I could implement what Joe was teaching me. So inspiring!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

What little of it I could get through was good in terms of content but I could not listen because of the narrator. I really wish Ms. Brown had read it herself. I powered through about an hour and a half of it.

What didn’t you like about Karen White’s performance?

The best comparison I can make is a female version of Eugene Levy's character in A Mighty Wind. But maybe it's just me. Listen to the sample. If it doesn't bother you then get the book. The content is good.

great content

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would certainly recommend this audiobook to anyone looking to build their personal brand. Some great how-to steps in here.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked having a lot of detailed steps to building a platform.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I wasn't thrilled about the narration - the author doing it himself. I understand why he did, though. In a book all about building your own brand and putting yourself out in the world, he kind of had to narrate it himself or risk inauthenticity. (is that a word?)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, though I didn't.
