    Story
    "Pretty good!"
    What made the experience of listening to Getting There: A Book of Mentors the most enjoyable?

    I liked the male narrator. Also, learning some of the back stories of famous people was cool.


    What other book might you compare Getting There: A Book of Mentors to and why?

    I don't read a lot of personal development books...seems like it's probably similar to some of those.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    There were no characters, just real people.


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

    It had short chapters, so it was good to listen to in quick shifts.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "These rich people are way cooler than I expected."
    What made the experience of listening to Getting There: A Book of Mentors the most enjoyable?

    I liked that there were a few different voice actors in this one. One of the male actors in particular was really great, but I don't know which one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It feels kind of cheesy to say, but this book was actually super motivational. I listened to it on my way to work and by the time I got there, I felt ready to give it my all. I'm impressed that the author was able to get interviews with all of these people


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The creator of Mad Men guy said some great stuff...I had to look up this line again, but it really stuck with me: "A great idea is worthless; execution is everything. It doesn't matter if you invented Star Wars before Star Wars existed."


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I always knew Anderson Cooper was smart and handsome, but I had no idea how much of a BADASS he is. Wow, he's been through a lot and taken a lot of risks to get where he is, which I really respect. CRUSH SOLIDIFIED. And Warren Buffet used to literally throw up if he had to do any public speaking?! lol Love it! Made me feel like I'm not completely lost and still have time to "Get There" too.
