An Audio PowerPoint

According to the summary, you will "Learn the leadership skills to build a better, more profitable business."

This book has precious little skill-building. It is more like an audio PowerPoint presentation: a series of bullet points presented with little explanation of how to integrate them into leadership behaviors. The bullet points may have been useful in a printed book, as one could then take time to meditate upon a few at a time. As an audiobook it doesn't work.

On top of that the audio quality is very poor, making the book more annoying than useful.
