What would have made The Barefoot Executive better?
Would you ever listen to anything by Carrie Wilkerson again?
Any additional comments?
I have listened to many audiobooks and enjoyed nearly all of them.After reading the other reviews on the site, I thought it sounded like a good listen.The book is very repetitive and has nothing of any real substance.I got through 2/3 of the book and could not take any more.In the first chapter carrie sets up her credentials - she runs many successful businesses from home, lost over 100 pounds, has 4 kids, overcame depression etc - which is good.But she keeps repeating these same facts again and again during the book about how amazing she is for overcoming these obstacles.There are no real deep insights about anything.The whole message of the book seemed to be - if you have an interest in something you can start an internet business advising on the topic, and if you work hard you will build a successful business.I am not disputing that this is true but there has to be more meat in a 6 hour book.It is supposed to be a book for people starting a business or people already running a business, but I think only newcomers to business will get anything out of it.This may sound like a harsh review, but maybe I am just not who the book was aimed at.

What disappointed you about The Barefoot Executive?
The title is completely misleading.
It was sophomoric.Self-centered. It was simplistic. Non-specific. Definitely not executive material.
Has The Barefoot Executive turned you off from other books in this genre?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carrie Wilkerson?
I wouldn't have published this book. it is more of a pamphlet that belongs in the lobby of a christian motivation center
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Barefoot Executive?
all the faith-based assertions. the simplicity and assumptions
Any additional comments?
It is a useless book for anyone who has been or wants to be in the business world. I can not imagine it being useful to anyone, whether you are starting out as a network marketer, an entrepreneur or a small partnership.

Carrie rambles on a lot about her life experiences, but I guess that's her style. She gives lots of good ideas to get you started in a very up beat fashion.
