One paragraph is repeated in different ways

Not worth the money. When the book isn't repeating previous content it is advertising to you.

Interesting concept and one I firmly believe in

I enjoyed this 26m summary and loved the structure of the summary. Key take aways clearly described and definitely left me wanting to read/listen to the book in full.

My only negative was the almost robotic/hypnotic style of narration - it was a little bit too 'bland' for my liking but clear and easy to understand. Once I got past that I got benefit from the content.

So why do people resist checklists? Beats me.
