Don't listen while driving!
Some of the stories were valuable. For a book on storytelling, I expected there to be more of them.
Painfully verbose, not accessible to average readers. A book intended for leaders should be quick and easy to read, knowing they are very busy people. This reads more like a textbook.
Maybe Denning himself would be a better narrator. Graeme Malcolm reads with a steady cadence that will lull you to sleep. He doesn't always emphasize the key words and phrases, and he could not possibly sound less interested in the material.
