just nine tips

The narrating of this book is very good however the length and detail are lacking. this book is short and incomplete. the nine ideas are great but there needs to be more detail and examples for the listener to be able to grasp the concepts that are explained.

straight to the point!

I use this and other books like it to sit in an evening and take notes on what to do. This book is great for that. Although free of any embellishment and meager on idea expansion, I now feel like I can move in a confident direction in this field. And it only took 1 hour. I will continue to look for these types of books since this one was so helpful!

Voice skips

It's good book but for some reason it skips parts of the book very often. When I rewind my default 10 seconds, sometí get to listen to what was skipped but then it will do it again in the next few seconds of the read. It's only happened to me with this book. I'm listening on a Samsung galaxy S8.

Great information but really really short

Even the first minute is probably the most threatening and hostile legal introduction I have ever heard in a book. That just gets the story off on the wrong foot.

I would really love this book if it combined all his books into 1 large book, as it is: such a hassle and listening to an introduction with a legal threat for what should be chapters in 1 normal book. if all these books were actually chapters in a normal book, this would be 5 stars for sure. Great info, terrible packaging.
