Good book but performance is lacking.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is a good book if all it does it change your perspective and cause you to rethink your questions before you ask them.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator sounds like a computer generated voice. I found it almost intolerable.

Decent book, horrible narration

Would you consider the audio edition of Power Questions to be better than the print version?

No, absolutely not. The content is decent and can be inspiring, but the narration by one of the authors is so horribly bad that I just stopped listening and never finished the book. I went out and got the print version instead. Another problem with the audiobook is the lack of an index of all the questions.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I never reached the ending.

What didn’t you like about Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas ’s performance?

One of them (I don't know which) was OK, the other was terrible, in fact so bad that I stopped the audiobook.

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

No. Its structure (many chapters, each on a separate 'power question') means it's best enjoyed in little bites.
