This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I stupidly glanced at the high reviews and didn't realize there were only 6. I made it about 25% in to the book and simply could not take anymore. Where to start, the material is regurgitated and seems almost plagiarized from countless other books, and this is the books best part. THE NARRATOR / AUTHOR - holy crap - I've listened to countless audio books and some have wonderful narrators while others have average ones, so I know I can typically expect one or the other. But this one...this one needs a whole new category of horrendous.
Here are the painful narrator issues in order of their intolerability:
1. LAUGHTER - There's a forced giggle / laugh EVERY OTHER SENTENCE - Why? WTF are you laughing about? He literally does this small forced laugh at the end of practically every sentence, why, I don't f'ing know. (I've pulled the gun out and loaded the cartridge)
2. INFLECTION - This one really gets me, you ever watch the local news? Their newscasters have this overly dramatic undulating tone to make the stories sound more interesting. Well, brace yourself, one again, EVERY OTHER SENTENCE has this tone.. up and down, up and down...(BANG! - yes, these 2 MAJOR flaws alone justify offing one self)
What was most disappointing about Scott Welle’s story?
Narration = ATROCIOUS
Same recycled material from countless OTHER authors.
How could the performance have been better?
If the book was never made and subsequently never narrated.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Outperform the Norm?
Don't ever narrate / author another book.
Any additional comments?
This is my first review after having been an Audible subscriber for over 10 years.

I love the structure, the principles and the real life examples! A great experience if you feel stuck.
Scott is inspirational and what he says makes a lot of sense. I'm trying to transform myself and I'm half way there. I've learned some of the lessons scott talks about the hard way. I have already started to integrate other lessons scott teaches into my life. just about to hit the rewind and play it again. thank you Scott
