Not like the others

Would you try another book from Richard N. Bolles and/or Patrick Lawlor?

I really loved this book in 2012 and I really thought it would be great as I was trying a new career move. But honestly this didn't help at all. I also wasn't crazy about the narrator as I often fell asleep. I think you need this in a book form in order to get the full benefit of it. I had to keep rewinding to write points down. I would not recommend this as a book for

How did the narrator detract from the book?

put me to sleep

Do you think What Color is Your Parachute? 2016 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not sure I can say yay or ney

Any additional comments?
