like it? not so much

The listener is treated to alot of hit and run "how to" blurbs, but after the first few, it was a real snooze. One wonders how some of them manage to make a living as public speakers, when their big "sales pitch" is such a bore. Redundant, and very disappointing.

Unever

It was missing a clear list of who is speaking when. And then there are some "classes" that are fabulous such as Patricia Fripp and others but it is difficult to know who is speaking. Chris Widener is also good. I think it was still worth listening since you could learn something with each person.
