Sean Pratt here again shows why he’s a great narrator.

The information could have been delivered in 1 hour. But Tim S. Grover wrote it in just under 7. Because basketball is his thing and training athletes too a high level, especially basketball stars. Basketball is not my jam. The skills are relevant to other careers but the “Relentless” basketball examples and name dropping really turned me off. I did finish the book but the message was almost lost, in my opinion.

I have been playing with the idea of taking my side hustle and going full time. This book was very encouraging and the plan is forming. For that aspect I liked the book very much. There are many examples of folks who have gone for it.

The problem is each story was a different narrator, many of which sounded like they were first time audio book narrators. 44 stories 44 narrators many are REALLY BAD. The content was the only saving grace for me. Maybe these folks are doing this as a side gig, most will need lots more training before going full time as narrator.

While the information was good. Ryan you should have set aside Your Ego and got a proper audio book narrator. You could have done the epilog and the podcast you included at the end. You voicing the entire book was a big Foo-pa.

R.C. Sproul has always been one of my favorite Bible teachers. Bob Souer is an outstanding narrator. The best and the best. If your interested in reformation church history or Martin Luther. Then get this book and listen to it. You will listen again.

Most of my listening is during my commute, in the car. Most books are clear and well recorded. Not this one. With the volume turned all the up I still couldn't make out most of what she was saying and it sounded like she was standing in a metal can recording into a laptop microphone.

Both the freebees I chose this month were bad. You get what you pay for, I guess.

Mr. Arkin is a well respected actor and because of this I chose this book without even checking the description or any reviews. What a mistake. It seems Mr. Arkin is in to Eastern religions. If had known that I would not have chosen this as one of my free books this month.

You get what you pay for, I guess.

Just a fun little mystery story. Charters not overly developed. Just an enjoyable listen during my 3 hour daily commute. Cris does a great job on this narration.

I’m sorry I know this narrator has done several books but this read is so choppy it is difficult to get fully into the book. I still have three hours to go and I find myself longing for this to be over. Like it were required reading for a class or something. In three years with Audible I have only returned one book, but.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I think Mel Robins enjoyed it. But so far 2 hours in, I want to say "MEL, I bought the book. I'm listening to the book. You don't have to keep trying to convince that I need the book. Just present the information."

Has The 5 Second Rule turned you off from other books in this genre?

I don't know yet, but it has turned me off to MEL ROBBINS. I know she wants to be a syndicated radio personality and so far 2 hours in to this "Audio book" and I hear the worst of radio host who spend the first half of a three hour show telling you what they are going to tell you. Then an hour telling why they are going to tell this to you. Then 40 minutes telling you why it is important. And finally conveying their point in about two minutes. And the show ends.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Mel Robbins?

NO WAY

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

4 Chapters in, almost 2 hours and so far NO.

Any additional comments?

When we are giving a speech, or writing an article. The rule is tell them what you are going to say. Say it, Then tell them what you said. But so far, 2 hours in and 4 chapters, Mel has told me what she is going to say. Then told me what she is going to say. Then told me what she is going to say. Then told me Why she is going to say it. Then told me what she is going to say. Then given me examples as why what she is going to say is important. And then told me what she is going to say.

MEL I BOUGHT THE BOOK. PLEASE JUST COVEY THE INFORMATION. YOU DON'T NEED TO KEEP TRYING DESPERATELY TO CONVINCE ME I NEED THIS BOOK.

I don't know if I can finish this book. I listen on my 3 hour commute and this may cause ROAD RAGE if she doesn't get to the nuts and bolts of this soon.
