good but repetitive

this book could be a lot shorter if they edited out the opening and closing to each story. it's worth a listen 1x, but I probably wouldn't listen again.

Don't waste your time!

There was very little valuable information in this book. Most if it is the author's opinions, and the guy that narrates it makes it sound like an infomercial.

Derivative, superficial, and self-involved

This is one of the vaguest, most self involved and derivative books I have read. The book almost spends more time covering the author’s own perceptions and memories of the events initiated by the book’s purported biographical subjects than on the subject themselves. Yes, there are some good biographical elements which were probably paraphrased from better biographies written by others, but the book continually refers to itself and discusses “the purpose of this book” and “this book” and “what I’ve been trying to say with this book” at numerous intervals, and claims to “cut through the hyperbole” and “provide critical analysis”. It does none of this, but it does provide a superficially opinionated take on the lives of its subjects in a way that is annoying, pseudo-professorial, and difficult to read. I wish I could get a refund.

Amazing, Inspiring Biographies of Brilliant men.

Amazing, Inspiring Biographies of Brilliant men. The narrator's voice kept dipping in and out as if his head was turning to and from the mic. Even so, I highly recommend this book. Really makes one marvel at the depth of the people the stories are about. As well, shows the common and uncommon threads that we can use to propel ourselves in our own arenas.

Over inflated and one sided.

These people are made out to be pefect or almost god like. They are not superheroes. I would have like a more relistic version to make them seem more human with all our faults.

High on promise, Low in delivery

The book has a very attractive title, with a lot of promise, but as soon as you start to listen, telling sooner you realize that the author has filled the pages with his opinions rather than just plain facts about the lives of the these great men. He should have spent time with each of them first before putting pen to paper.

I have not listen any other books about Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Jack Ma, Richard Branson.Their life and their work, but this book was a "must listen" in my opinion. After listening this book, I had a soft spot in my heart for those genius mans.

Excellent choice

Very interesting biographies with several views that open our mind to understand why they are as they are.
In some cases a too descriptive which makes que listening boring.

Extremely torturous

There is nothing new in this book. Very repetitive with no actual content. Disliked the style of narration. Urge others not to waste their money or credit on this.

Good collection of biographies but poor recording

The biographies were interesting and inspiring (although some of the information may not be totally relevant). The recording was of very poor quality (like muffled voice) and very hard to listen to, especially when outdoors.

Such a disappointment

Only listened to the Jeff Bezos piece. Very poor writing, very poor narration and even poor recording quality. The author seems only to have a few things to say about Bezos and so chooses to say each thing 100 times to pad out the book. Such hard work and so little return from the investment of time. I’ll not be investing any more!

Sound quality is bad and the content even worse...A lot of empty words repeating over and over again the same thing with little or no actual information...Among the worst "biography" books ever
