Narrator is good. Science is usually straight forward. This book is endless anecdote after endless anecdote. Rather than serving theory directly, this book wanders through painful, time consuming stories. It always sets up delayed reward with no payoff. One can apply science, but not story after story after story. Lacks integration of the ideas put forward, but suggests that the reader should. Couldn't finish the book. Jumped to the final chapter, hoping for summation & integration. Disappointed again. Taxed my patience after 3 chapters.

My goodness, what a rocky start. I get it, the author is highly successful and is in great demand by big names and big corporations but when is he going to get into the meat of his ideas that are so called "breakthrough" and "promising"? So far, it's a bloated, superficial book with a lot of self promotion and self hype. He sums up many ideas already out there, and is a combination of ideas already floating around LA --> Landmark Education + Influence + Kaizen. It's so boring to hear him on repeat about all his successes and having to wade through irrelevant facts about his life (missing his friends from SoCal while at Stanford? Saving people from AIDS and taking credit for Trader Joe's?) The listener just wants the actual idea. Finally after 16 minutes, he shares his first idea...start small. Then get on Instagram and show your work to build a community around your small idea. I thought I was buying something of substance but this is turning out to be a great waste of my time. This book needs major editing. I hope it gets better, if it does, I'll modify this review.
