Should not be an audiobook

The title should be, "Ready to be a Thought Leader for Women." The book is very woman oriented. I don't have a problem with that, but think it would had of been better if it was gender neutral. I found it very distracting. Further, this book is one better for print media, a book that you can highlight and take notes, not for listening while driving.
