Good content, but narration is a little too slow.

John Maxwell is always an informative or insightful read. However, the narrator's slow pace and long pauses between sentences and topics (true to Maxwell formatting) is, unfortunately, quite distracting. If you are a Maxwellian, like myself, you may find it better and more digestible to read this book in its paper format. The content of the book is certainly good and Maxwell provides some excellent advice on how to intentionally and thoroughly think about any topic, creatively or analytically. Overall, the book is worth adding to the collection, but I would recommend a physical copy over this audio version.

Some good information

Pros: Some very great and pertinent information for living a successful life. I gathered 4-5 ideas that I know will help me in my current role. The book is also mostly motivating.

Opinionated Cons: Perhaps it was because I listened to this on audiobook and did not organize notes, but list of after list of principles caused the book to seem redundant and boring in some of the chapters.
