Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
It's a short book and I knew already some of the points discussed, but it's a useful short book.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Gagnepain?
That was the weakest point for me. I found the narrator terribly boring (sorry).

While the author understands the material well enough, and the performer reads the book quite well, two things made it impossible for me to complete (or to benefit from) this recording. 1) The author's constant use of the term "efficacy" instead of the word "confidence" kept knocking me out of the flow of the book. (Imagine buying a book about birds. You start to read the book and discover almost no mention of "birds" anywhere in the book. Instead the book is filled with references to "avian creatures". That's roughly what the author has done to this book on self confidence...) 2) Several places in the narrative, the author refers to "her" lack of self efficacy. I found it incongruous that the author felt compelled to assign a female pronoun to a negative condition that effects both genders. - - Please note that I've listened to other recordings by this author/reader team and have enjoyed them, but this particular book needs a massive revision/cleanup before I'd recommend it to anyone!
