What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I listened to this right after having heard Jeff Sutherland's book (one of the creators of Scrum). Jeff's book is amazing with amazing examples and explanations. This book, on the other hand, has some guidance but I found it uninspiring and unconvincing. Jeff's book is a tough act to follow but I was expecting either more information or more convincing or even just more examples on how to apply scrum to non-software efforts. I did not find any of that.

I liked to because it gave me enough to come up with immediate ideas on how I can implement at my organization

The narration of this book was very poor. The book was read by someone with an old voice and slow tempo, which really doesn't suit the subject matter of software development. This book is most likely to be read by fairly young (or young thinking) people and the narration by an old voice really makes it feel like very old subject matter.
However, the worst part of the narration is that it is disjointed and sounds like the person is reading the text for the first and only time.
The narrator breaks sentences in inappropriate places, stumbles in places and pronounces things poorly. This ruins the flow of the book, and ultimately ruins the book. The subject matter is something that requires a degree of concentration and the constant need for my brain to parse what was being said just broke that concentration.
The content of the booked seemed ok, but ultimately I gave up on the book,
