great book but very bad narration

great book for any aspiring entrepreneur to read. neatly laid concepts for a disruptive approach. but the narration was really worst. Very bad narration style. Even a first grader would have better narration delivery.

not perfect but more relateable than others

this book is more of a boots on the ground early stage book. most other books I've read are for business beyond where I'm at and don't go into enough detail on the stumbling blocks of getting started with no or little money. I like his performance, but it's not as polished as others. I actually like that for this book, but just be aware.

Helpful Tips but the Narration is Poor

This book had a lot of good tips. Unfortunately, unlike many audiobooks, this was not composed as if it was a written book.

Down to Earth real advices!

The narration style mirrors the real attitude: Do things quickly and learn. Many thanks for this book, no more time spent to get ideas validated but on the market.

Powerful, concise and motivating

i read this book a while back but wanted to download the audiobook as a refresh as i drove. it is probably in line with 'the san francisco fallacy' as being one of the best short startup reads. loved dan's genuine narrating too

Really good read

I enjoyed listening to this book. Lots of titbits on how to ensure a successful launch. I particularly like the fact that the author describes the necessary actions in ways that are not intimidating,- like anyone can do it! Spurs you to take action. The Scottish accent was a bit of a surprise, but I got used to it after the 1st chapter and by the 5th it added quite some authenticity to the read. Will listen to it again and again!

satisfied listener

narration was tops, best I've heard so far. he read it like he was doing a seminar which is far easier to stick with, nothing sounded scripted. apart from that there was a lot of great info in the book and I found it motivating. I'm now a big fan of Dan Norris and will be joining his social media group and subscribing to his mailing list. great book, cheers.
