Someone very new to the working world - as in right out of high school - might appreciate it as general, shot-in-the-arm, rah-rah encouragement with which to embark on their career, but those with a more extended employment trajectory will find it old hat, motivational-speaker style hyperbole whose main attribute is its merciful brevity.
It's mostly an enthusiastic oral delivery of his own résumé, lacking in far too much specificity to be helpful. To his credit, he's got a reasonably palatable speaking voice, although he stumbles over some of his own writing and doesn't bother to correct the flubs.
His enthusiasm is infectious...almost...
Amazing Audio Version
Having bought the book, I couldn't wait for the audio version. CC is an engaging and entertaining speaker, and his enthusiasm really comes through in the audio version.
For some reason, the chapter about Ducks really struck a chord with me. Often times, being a duck, I am considered either complacent or uncaring - CC felt like he was talking about ME, saying it's ok not to "sweat the small stuff." Plus, hearing him quack through my car stereo was priceless.
CC is always an engaging speaker, so this version of his book definitely didn't let me down. I've heard a lot of "boring" books that are supposed to be uplifting and inspirational - but CC is different - you can feel the energy and honesty through his words.
I could have picked up the audio version for free as part of my audible subscription in only a few days. BUT, I just couldn't wait and popped on it. I was not disappointed. It is a great listen in the car as you are getting motivated to start your day.
