    "how to win friends"

    This is a great summary. I had read the entire book earlier but wanted an abbreviated version. I recommend this summary.

    "Hit on good points but....."

    The advice given in this summary is excellent practical advice, but the narrator's voice sounded like a robot and really annoyed me.

    "Good concise summary"

    This is literally the exact book just super summarized, even down to the example stories. I feel it doesn't have nearly the impact as the full book, but If you've already read the full book and just want an annual refresher, this is perfect.

    "Painful to listen to"
    What didn’t you like about Kelly Rhodes’s performance?

    It was extremely annoying to listen to the tone of his voice. I couldn't even finish the book.

    "Unlistenable"

    The vo talent was not the right choice for this content. He sounds robotic and his cadence/pacing is jarring. I couldn't focus on the material because I was so distracted by his speech style. I'm sure he's great for other content, but this book was poorly done, don't waste your money.

    "The things we should know!"

    Treat people the right way and you will as a consequence achieve the things you want. The world won't turn on its own, we have to help make it.
