This might sound a bit cranky but I do miss the fact that it's not the writer reading and speaking. The voice is not bad but it doesn't feel as powerful or true when it's not read by the writer. Especially this type of books.

Lisa Bodell prescribes a spectacularly complex set of procedures in the name of helping your business simplify. The complication and specificity are truly stunning—down to telling readers exactly how many minutes to spend thinking about certain questions or performing certain steps in the labyrinth of procedures she gives. A much more helpful and impactful approach would be to state each principle and then show just enough diverse examples so that readers can go off and generalize the principle to all aspects of their lives. This approach is used extremely effectively by Stephen Covey and Simon Sinek.
In addition, the reader’s performance is the worst I have heard on Audible, save for Christopher Hitchens’ mumbling in his own books. The reader’s constant, exaggerated changes in intonation are at best bizarre, at worst extremely distracting to the listener.
Overall, a huge letdown of a book, especially one written about such an important topic in today’s world.
