It's a summary of what's in the actual book

I wish it would have been more about the 5 things and not about the author

Instaread review

Interesting high level overview of this book. It is a great refresher if you’ve already read the book. it is also great for “vetting” a book, as to not get 1/3rd of the way into a book before you decide it is a waste of your time.

However, you are not getting the full message and only a high level overview. I find Instaread is awesome if you’ve already read a book and want a quick refresher. It’s okay otherwise

Just ok

Not really a great re-cap, I feel like I’ll have to read the whole book.

A must read over and over

I end up re-reading (listening) this book over and over and continue to make changes, for the best.

A trick to get you to spend a credit on nothing

I thought this was the actual book. I didn't realize that it was a short description of the book. What a complete waste of good money. I wouldn't be so pissed if there was an option to return.

Not at all what I expected

Any additional comments?

Won't be buying any summarized versions of books again in future. Absolutely useless. Waste of money.

Great little summary

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Sure - its only 20 minutes

Any additional comments?

Great little summary to refresh and remind you about the 5 dysfunctions

Wast of money will get refund

Admittedly I thought I'd ordered the actual audio book! I listened, complete waste of money.
