This is the best distillation of stand-up comedy that I've found. I have friends who have taken Greg's class in person, and loved it. I've only listened to the audiobook, and it's fantastic. If you want to Learn Stand-Up, get this book!!!

The information is okay, but the recording, of what sounds like a phone call, is almost impossible to listen to. There is a very bad echo and the quality is scratchy.

Today everyone whether they know it or not - is in the emotional transportation business. More and more, success is won by creating compelling stories that have the power to move partners, shareholders, customers, and employees to action. Simply put, if you can’t tell it, you can’t sell it. And this book tells you how to do both.

Good Content - Awful Narrator

Overall

I've been a huge fan of Peter Guber for years, but this version would have been a magnitude better had he narrated it himself. The content is first rate, but it's difficult to listen to due to the voice talent. Patrick Egan is a sleep inducing automaton. I'll never buy another audio book narrated by this guy.
