May be relevant, but very difficult to listen to

While I have found many good bits of information in this audiobook it has been extremely difficult to get through. I believe it is the author who is reading himself and how and where he chooses to pause and put emphasis doesn't seem to flow very well with the content.
This is my seventh audiobook but the first that failed to keep my attention while listening. Schaefer does provide some very useful tidbits, but I can't help but wonder if I should have bought the hard copy of the book rather than the audible.
Many chapters are filled with list upon list of tips advice, and ideas, however often times by the third point I've completely lost sight of the list topic and he generally makes no effort to remind the listener of the relevance.

Here's How to Get Your Content to Market

If you could sum up The Content Code in three words, what would they be?

Thoughtful and timely.

What other book might you compare The Content Code to and why?

Content, Inc.

Any additional comments?

I read this book because I wanted find better ways of getting my content and brand to people who are more likely to read my content and hire me for services. This book is packed with ideas, strategies, and suggestions for doing just that. I am now on my second read to more thoroughly dissect and incorporate the author’s thoughts and suggestions into practices. Read this book if you are ready to go to the next level in reaching your target market.

good 'inspiration' book but...

this is a excellent book for getting you excited about content marketing. my only comment (just in case the author reads these) is I'd have liked a few more detailed actions to take away with me. very knowledgeable individual however and well worth a listen.
