Awesome listening experience!

This book is one of the most honest, entertaining and insightful books I have ever had the priviledge to listen to. Apart from the valuable leadership advice, the stories are entertaining and filled with excitement. The only thing that could possibly make the audiobook better, is if Preston could narrate it himself (not that Jack Hicks did anthing wrong - he does a superb job). Thank you for a book that I wanted to never finish.
