Great intent. Poor delivery.

Struggled to finish. The point of the book is there, but the approach to sharing the info misses the mark.

Don’t recommend as audio book...

If you are reading this book as a professional book study the audio is a bit hard to follow. The chapters don’t line up with the chapters listed. I was trying to read a chapter at a time and I couldn’t find the stop and start. It made it hard for me to be prepared for the next meeting.
