The perfect addition to the creative professional's library, or even for noncreatives who need to understand the mentality and culture more in depth, Designed to Go the Distance is sure to be an engaging and informative experience.

Good for what it is

Note: In exchange for an unbiased review, the author, publisher, and/or narrator were kind enough to provide an audio version of this book at no charge via AudiobookBlast.

This was a good summary style book on a subject that could definitely be expanded into something bigger. But the summary was pretty well done and concise, with some good, no-nonsense tips and advice that probably worked better than if this book HAD been expanded into something bigger. A quick listen, and decent performance by the narrator. Recommended.

Eye opening review of Creative dynamics

This was a very interesting excursion into the dynamics faced by many Creatives. I feel that this would be a very helpful listen for any young Creative and it can provide valuable insights into the social paradigms they will encounter.

I appreciate the perspective and multiple dynamics that the author reviews. I found it to be insightful, constructive and positive. The author presents both introvert and extrovert Creatives and the unique assets that they offer. He then presents the bumps that they may encounter and explains them in a way that the Creative can internalize them without taking them as personal set backs. This is not an easy concept to present and this demonstrates that the author comes from his own creative experiences which further validates the presentation.

The narration was easy to listen to and well paced. It was not overwhelming and gave the listener time to process the concepts presented.

I found this to be a helpful and valuable book, one that I recommend for those who are or know Creatives.
