Wordy, boring and hard to listen to

What would have made The Power of Appreciative Inquiry better?

Shorten it. Use less BS words and make it easier to listen to. It could easily have been half the length

What was most disappointing about Diana Whitney and Amanda Trosten-Bloom ’s story?

Too many references to corporations. Got the feeling they were trying to build themselves. Took 2 cds to get into the training.

How could the performance have been better?

Much shorter and simpler.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power of Appreciative Inquiry?

many words could have been removed.

Any additional comments?

none

Terrible don't buy

this was a struggle to listen to at best the narrator is a machine and the whole book is done in the same robot fashion I listen to a lot of books and usually wouldn't write a review but go out and buy the book read it for yourself this is the most brutal audible book I've ever bought.

I would have appreciated in inquiry into a different narrator

Interesting topic but not enough hands on tools. The narration was so mechanical it was distracting. It was like listening to a 1970s computer voice.
