Where does Rise and Grind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Rise and Grind is among the better motivational books that I've listened to in terms of message. I like Sway, but his reading style was frustrating, at times, as his words didn't flow with the content as it should have. I understand why Damon chose to have an alternate narrator, but he may have chosen the wrong person this time. When in doubt, call Morgan Freeman.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The most memorable anecdotes were from Carlos Santana and Wendy Williams. Tyler the Creator was also and interesting insight.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were no tears, but there may have been a chuckle or two, here and there.
