Good content – too many cases + poor narration
The content – the ideas themselves, and the framework – is very interesting. Sadly, the message is buried in far too many case stories and anecdotes. They're examples, yes, but I wish I could press a "skip this anecdote"-button, to FFWD to the next useful piece of information.
Additionally, the author reads to softly. I like his voice, but when he speaks every other sentence at a lower volume, the compressor/limiter/gate/expander (voice processing) kicks in too hard, making the problem even worse, than if no processing had been used. It's as if the audio engineer asked him to do a sound test, and the author narrated that test loud and clear, the audio guy then called it a day, went home, leaving the author narrating all evening and night, with the result that the author drifts into low volume/level sentences, etc.
Bottom line: it made it impossible to hear the words clearly when out and about, in traffic and such.
All in all, I'd recommend you get the print copy, as it's also a very beautifully laid-out book, graphically speaking. And then you can skip the anecdotes:)

Good book Bad recording
Concepts, ideas and solutions are great. very inspiring. the muddled recording with the readers almost whispering reading makes it very hard to keep focused on the book. Still worth it !
