Interesting but dull

It was an interesting topic, but the discussion was at times painfully dull. I found myself listening to an hour of the audiobook for one or two inciteful comments.

worth listening to

Shapiro does a good job of explaining about 15 different ways why preparation is a key success factor in whatever endeavor you are involved in. What's most interesting, is that his examples come from a very wide range of good preparers...from musicians to lawyers to surgeons to sports stars.
Great narration, lot's of energy in Shapiro's voice.
