Love the man, dislike this audiobook
Absolutely terrible audio and very dry reading of a great man's account.
Instead, I highly recommend "Benjamin Franklin: An American Life" by Walter Isaacson.

The title was good enough
A huge opportunity was squandered here. Listen, entrepreneurs want to know strategies, psychological shifts, relationships we must make, etc... to be successful. We want to know HOW. Don't just tell us the "what" and then give us some stories. We need to know how to be so good. What must we do? What is someone's routine? Perhaps a wider breath of different vocations and how the entrepreneurs became great in their fields?
"Love yourself," "be present," and esoteric nonsense
The entire book can be summarized into "love yourself," "be present," "let your true self shine," and other woo-woo buzz words that do nothing for someone trying to develop themselves and their business acumen. The only reason I bought it because it was recommended in the top 5 reading lists for entrepreneurs on entrepreneur.com. I trusted that site, but a degree less now due to this very weak piece.
