Publisher's Summary

Designed to Go the Distance touches upon many career and lifestyle issues specific to those in creative career fields - cultural topics that are not often talked about or adequately prepared for.
Think of this book more as a late-night barstool or coffeehouse conversation between two creatives. A creative pep talk, so to speak. And just like any pep talk in life, this book provides a healthy serving of food for thought as well as a few tips along the way, too.
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.

A good but short book

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

If you want a cliff notes version of a self help book, this is definitely a good example. For what it was, I think it was pretty good. It was very concise and well narrated. I especially liked the section on receiving criticism. Definitely good for those "right-brained" types in your life.

Advice to avoid burnout

The book goes through advice on how to get the most out of your career as a creative professional, for working with non-creative people and (most importantly) ensuring you don't burn yourself out along the way.

The book is quick, and no-nonsense. Full of good advice and information.

I am not a Creative Professional, but I often work around or with the. So I picked up with book so as a way to get some of their perspective. And it that goal, this book worked well.

A good resource for both creative types and those who have to deal with them.

Narration by Seumus Michael Maley was really great. He brought a non-fiction book to life by breathing some character into it. At one point the text lists out all sorts of things that can wear you don't and as Maley reads it you can feel the pressure of them, and the release as he finishes the list. Certainly a narrator I will keep an ear out for.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
