Not a communication pr leadership book at all

if you would like to listen about a retiree talk about his CPAP machine and other ramblings then the book is just for you otherwise it has nothing to do with communication.

the narration was the hardest part

unfortunately the narration felt very robotic to me and made it difficult to focus on the content and I felt was poor. Perhaps if I had read the book I might have gotten more out of the content but overall I felt the book got off topic alot and only contained a handful of listening and leadership tips you will find in alot of other books with quite a few instances of the author seeming to just brag. unfortunately I didn't get much out of it.

Not sure what I just read.

I write this with no disrespect: There are a few basic nuggets on communication, but they are similar to those you read about in any book on communication. If you like personal stories, then this might be a book for you.

Not What I expected

A few pearls but mostly stories. The actual communication portions could probably fit in to a couple chapters.

Autobiography

What was most disappointing about Allan London’s story?

I was looking for tools to improve communication and only found a mildly interesting autobiography.
