Great content about how authors can take their careers (and, by extension, their lives) into their own hands. Tim's advice is both practical and revolutionary. Very empowering!

Unlike some people, I enjoy nonfiction audiobooks narrated by the author. It gives the book a flair that professional narrators can't. After all, the author knows best how to express the ideas.
That's the case here, as the author does a great job of expressing himself. I've listened to him in seminars and podcasts, and his voice is consistent.
Content-wise, this is the best book on marketing out there. If you're looking for something to listen to on the way to work, you can't do any better, especially if you're trying to focus on growing your mailing list.
Also, the bonus interview at the end with Tim was totally unexpected and greatly appreciated. I almost missed it, though.
Performance-wise, this could have been better, but that's to be expected from an author-narrated book. There were a few run-on sentences and choppy reads that could have been better. They weren't too distracting, but they were noticeable.
This was a great audiobook, and I'd definitely listen to it again.

What made the experience of listening to Your First 1000 Copies the most enjoyable?
Great title, perhaps misleading – or perhaps not, as I’ve not yet put the ideas of this book into action :)
Though I partly sympathised with another review that says – 'it’s one basic idea – create a subscriber list,' I feel the book turned out to offer a lot more. For example Grahl makes really good points about social media which, after a year of experiment and expenditure, I whole-heartedly agree with. Also, we can all create a website with a subscriber widget – but how to make it effective and work for us? May as well spend a couple of quid and spend a couple of hours listening to an audio that explains how to make it for us. Well worth the investment.
I listened to the whole thing in a short time, and have taken a lot away from it, so I would definitely recommend this to people wondering if this book would be advantageous to them and if they should give it a go.
