good book bad performance

The book was really good. One of the few leadership books that had tangible solutions. The performance was not so great. There was no pauses or emphasis. It was read like a text book which might work for other leadership books but this one has an actual story through it. Also as a book which talks about story telling you kinda except that when listening to it.
