Interesting Take

This was a nice quick and easy listen with valuable insight weaved in. The narrator did a great job, though at times his cadence seemed a bit off. I laughed out loud a few times, scaring the person next to me.
The book covers five key skills necessary to be a leader. The authors usage of comic book heroes to relate to these skills was easy to follow.

This audio book was graciously provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review
