Great Bedtime Story for Everyone

Would you consider the audio edition of The Leadership Secrets of Santa Claus to be better than the print version?

yes, using new 1.25x speed brings these good business and life lessons to life. Mel Forster is Santa. This was so cleverly done, that you had a smile on your face as you re evaluate the good facts of business and life.
This is a great way to educate young people early as a bedtime story.

What other book might you compare The Leadership Secrets of Santa Claus to and why?

Brian Tracy's Bulleye, is short and to the point like this book. These are simple elements, but many fail to embrace them.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

These were simple reminders that pay off. It was to the point, and cleverly told. What more could you ask for in a self help book.

Any additional comments?

Nice daily deal that enable you to learn or be reminded, and be entertained.
Nice job Audible!

Excellent!

What sounded like a goody title and concept is actually one of the best I've read. After around 40 or so leadership books, this one seems to have taken the most important and best portions of them and made a very relatable book.

don't waste your time

Was looking for funny. It is more corny than humorous. I got caught by title... learn from my mistake.

Should be entitled leadership for dummies

If you can get past the irritating reader's voice, there's probably a good message here. He sounded like he was talking to kindergarteners.
and to be fair, the message was rather juvenile.

My dad was really santa

I loved this - coming from a fairly christmasy family - my birth is 12/25 my sister is 12/24. My dad is Joseph my mom Anna Mary. There are 8 older siblings like 8 reindeer - I am the 9th - the smallest and with bright red hair. So I loved this take on the responsibility of being a Santa Claus - and my dad in his late 50s looked exactly like Santa - though he hated Christmas :)
