Info probably good but can't get past the distractions!

As a career leadership/performance professional, I routinely listen to books on topics related to my field. As such, I'm no stranger to getting past bad narration and poor writing to get to the meat of a valuable message.
I can't do it for this book! The narrator is robotic and slow. When I can get past that, he mispronounces too many basic performance terms and my concentration on the content is interrupted time and again as I mentally correct him.
The writing so unnecessarily padded that I frequently think we've moved into another topic only to realize that they're simply saying the same thing again (and again) in a more convoluted way.
No wonder the authors spend so much time on their dubious credentials at the top of the book.
There is some useful content buried in here that might be useful though it's amateurishly stated and there are errors in the content. However, even that is so deeply covered beneath the nonsense that I cannot recommend this book. It should have been about an hour long recording.
