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.

Too General - Lacking Content

What did you like best about How Successful People Think? What did you like least?

The book is written similar to a summary, it doesn't provide actionable examples. The book fails to jump to the core issues of any concept. Often the author just gives a list of several bullet points of what we do that wrong or right. however, what is missing is the why and how.
