Most Helpful

Revived and Focused at work.

What did you love best about Getting Ahead?

The specific tasks assigned by each section.

What about Christopher Hurt’s performance did you like?

The narrator did a great job of letting me hear the story, instead of hearing a person talking to me. When you do not even think about the reader, that is a very good narration!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and No. I did not want to stop at any point, but found it best for me to break it into concept sections and ruminate upon (and put into practice) what I learned.

Any additional comments?

I had been experiencing a professional doldrums for a couple of years, but I am again focused and zealous with this ambition-injection (i.e. some oxygen to my professional coals). This book is a valid, sustainable process for "getting ahead" at work. I am already benefitting from it. Whether you need energizing or need a how-to for getting ahead, this will do it for you.

Okay, but nothing sensational, bad audiobook

okay info, would rather have a copy for notes. I think there are some good tips and strategies to implement, but I recommend buying the book to be able to review easier.
