Great commuting read

This audiobook feels like a combination of really good blog posts and articles on self-improvement tips and tactics.

Super for listening to on the way to work... provides decent tips and tricks to employ in your day to day.

In some ways these short form articles, by a wide variety of contributing authors, is better than traditional business books, which often take a basic idea and expand it from its core into unnecessarily lengthy repetition.

While there are smaller theses presented in each mini chapter, there are a wide variety of gems one can put to use.

Puff pieces

Felt like I was listening to a career horoscope. Just a smattering or puff pieces really. The final few minutes were the best part.

Rehash of all the platitudes you know and love

Lots of quotes from overpaid gurus and news articles you've already read. Ok maybe if you're new in this space.

Can't wait to listen to it again!

Any additional comments?

There is just so much great information in this book, and the ease of listening to it while traveling makes it so convenient! I will definitely have to listen to this again. Maybe even read it myself to scratch down some notes. Either way, this is a great book.

Like a collection of business magazine articles

The book is a collection of essays grouped into four categories: opportunities, expertise, relationships, and risks. Since the essays are short, most lack examples and depth that would provide insights to the reader. For example, one essay states that in this age of flux, the most important skill is the ability to get new skills. Obviously, being a quick learner is a valuable trait to have. However, suggesting that you try more things, particularly outside of your usual experiences, is not very useful.

Irresponsible interpretation of the original works

If you are interested in the subject matter presented here, please do yourself a favor and get the original works rather than sit thru a platitudinous and poorly interpreted version of the originals. I like to give a book a chance, and often find value in works that have less than stellar reviews, but I should have given more weight to other critical reviews of this book.

Original works are misinterpreted and misconstrued in a way that is indicative of the editor's lack of understanding regarding the subjects cited... For example, when citing the oft misinterpreted 10,000-hour rule, the reader is gifted this conclusion: "It is possible for nearly anyone to achieve excellence in nearly anything." This statement is directly attributed to Anders Ericsson and Malcom Gladwell. I do not believe either author would want such a parabolic claim attributed to their work.

This book and the entire series seems to be a heavy-handed pitch for the 99u / Behance offering. This volume may hold some value for that particular audience, but if you have no connection with that organization, you will be disappointed. sad.

Motivated by this book

Loved it. Helps you understand we are all capable and that living with regret is far worse than trying something and not hitting the mark. Just keep trying , it will come.
