There are bits of great information and entrepreneur insights mixed in with a lot of commercial-like statements about Linked-in. Also, there was way too much name dropping without any real purpose. It was like being in a boring first date with a person that can't stop boasting about their connections and achievements. There was nothing there to attach what is being said to the listener. At moments I felt as if I was being talked to and not engaged. While I am glad to have an opportunity to gain some insight into Reid Hoffman's success, I doubt I will be listening to this or any other book by him again. There will be no second date.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. The authors' concept of equating a career plan to a business plan for a startup company is unique and useful. I have already recommended the book to several of my younger colleagues.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What about Kaleo Griffith’s performance did you like?
I think the narrator's performance was above average and enhanced my comprehension of the material.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The book introduced the concept of ABZ Planning which given my advanced years and relatively stable career path has limited utility in terms of career planning, but the concept provides a clear framework for structuring "scenario planning" models and describes a perfect approach for evaluating strategic decisions in a way that scratches the itch of decision makers.
