What disappointed you about Work Simply?

It took the author a long time to get to the point of the book. Then, some of the strategies covered are very involved considering the book's title. It seems it would be better to learn them from the written word so you could highlight the aspects that might work for you.

What disappointed you about 10% Happier?

The narrator did a good job with the story but the point of the whole book could have been written in a blog post.

Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella and/or Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Serritella ?

I would not read another book by these authors.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Their timing in reading what are supposed to be funny lines is awful. I'm 30% into the book hoping it will get better but will move on to something else. It's not worth my time to finish.
