Let me start by saying, I LOVE HACKS! Anything that helps me achieve more in less time with better results is something I'm interested in! Knowing that, I'm sure it is no surprise that the title of this audiobook caught my eye right away. Top 5 Productivity Hacks: Learn True Time Management, Cure Procrastination and Take Control of Your Life by Eli Scott, Narrated by Mike Norgaard is my kind of book and I couldn't wait to immediately dive in and start listening!
This audiobook is quite short (~30 minutes). Although I wish it could have been longer, the information presented was helpful and got straight to the point. I enjoyed hearing the shared personal experiences and stories because it inspired me to follow in their footsteps. I felt especially motivated and confident that I, too, can successfully take control of my life by effectively managing my time and curing procrastination problems. The shared stories were easy to relate to because I am also a teacher...our daily lives are pretty similar! Real-life examples of people being successful, opens our eyes to the possibility that we can (and will!) do the same. By setting reasonable goals and following these productivity hacks, you can be assured that positive changes will take place. Besides a few awkward pronoun placement issues, Eli Scott's productivity hacks are explained in terms that are easy to understand, making the path to success a clear one, resulting in a happier, more fulfilling life! I give the information/story category 4/5 stars.
The narration by Mike Norgaard is cheerful, helpful, and encouraging. His tone is positive and upbeat, and I felt like I was listening to a friend give me advice. However, I did think that his pace was a bit fast. Had he spoken a little slower and included pauses at the end of sentences, it would have been easier for me to absorb the information as he was presenting. Instead, I had to push pause a couple of times and let my brain catch up to his words. Either way, I feel his narration still added to the book, overall. Even though his words were a bit speedy, his voice stayed consistently clear and easy to understand. He did a great job and I plan to continue following his work on Audible. I give the performance category 4.5/5 stars.
Overall, based on the writing and quality of content that Eli Scott included in this book and Mike Norgaard's presentation of the information, this audiobook deserves 4.3/5 stars. I do not own a kindle copy of this book, so I cannot speak on the grammar, punctuation, and formatting, but I will say that I enjoyed hearing advice about how to take control of my life, effectively manage my time, cure problems with procrastination, and make each day more meaningful and productive! Here's to a positive and successful future!
Thank you so much for reading my review. I hope it helped. :-)
