Yadda yadda yadda

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It's not for me. No actionable advice. Just anecdotes.

What could Bob Maurer and Leigh Ann Hirschman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Include some actionable advice. And target it a tad more broadly, so it's not just for leaders of big corporations.
