What did you love best about Getting Ahead?

The specific tasks assigned by each section.

What about Christopher Hurt’s performance did you like?

The narrator did a great job of letting me hear the story, instead of hearing a person talking to me. When you do not even think about the reader, that is a very good narration!

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

Yes and No. I did not want to stop at any point, but found it best for me to break it into concept sections and ruminate upon (and put into practice) what I learned.

Any additional comments?

I had been experiencing a professional doldrums for a couple of years, but I am again focused and zealous with this ambition-injection (i.e. some oxygen to my professional coals). This book is a valid, sustainable process for "getting ahead" at work. I am already benefitting from it. Whether you need energizing or need a how-to for getting ahead, this will do it for you.
