Missing Harvey Mackay as the reader

His books are very helpful and I really enjoy his memorable points. However, this is the first Audible book by Mr. Mackay that has not been recorded by him. I miss not hearing Mr. Mackay and only hope that there was just not time in his schedule to record the book for Audible, and that there is not a health or other reason why we cannot hear from him on this, his latest book.

I'm disappointed that the narrator does not have the same folksy style and instead has a rapid pace, clipped style of presentation. The narrator is very capable, but he just doesn't match the style of the author -- and that's what I always look forward to in Audible and the reason why I choose Audible...instead of reading. For this one book, I suggest buying the printed copy. But do buy the other versions narrated by Mr. Mackay on Audible.

waste of time and audible credit

Use Your Head to Get Your Foot in the Door: Job Secrets No One Else Will Tell You. The title of the book has absolutely nothing to do with the content.
I was expecting a book that give me tips about networking, resume writing and interview answers. He wrote a whole chapter about anger. If I have anger issues I will be listening to Tony Robbins. Another chapter about rejection where he talks about it but doesn't tell how to handle it. Again I didn't choose to listen to this book to learn about feelings.
I would be satisfied with at least one tip. Nothing.
Also I have trouble understanding what he was saying. My guess is that he used a thesaurus and chose always words that he didn't even know.
