Company Promo - At best could be a $3.99 Ebook

The first 20 min is a prologue thanking people and the last 40 min is reading samples of PR writings her company did for others. So that leaves 2 hours—half of which is about her company and what they did for clients. The remaining hour does have a few good tips but also a lot of “beginner’s marketing” advice (I.e. use Google Analytics, FB, IG, make friends with reporters, etc) This felt more like a sales presentation about why to do PR, or to hire them, than a step-by-step guide to doing your own PR. Not worth my $15 credit, or even $10. Also I thought the resources provided with the audiobook would be helpful but there wasn't a pdf with this audio. A few website links were mentioned but of the two that I could find, 1 was a broken link and the other just her company sites. Either way, this shouldn’t be an audiobook, would be better as a very small Ebook because the last section is useless in audio format. I feel like this book was written primarily to promote her PR rather than to help us.

very difficult!

The robotic way in which the author reads makes it almost impossible to listen to. It may be a good book but I cannot get far enough in to find out. She should have used a professional audiobook reader, which, given that she's in the PR business where impressions matter is surprising.
