Publisher's Summary

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less is a self-help book by Greg McKeown. The book outlines a minimalist approach to tasks and obligations by focusing on truly important goals and learning to turn down opportunities that do not directly contribute to meeting those goals.

Boring and lightweight

Not worth the listen to. I suggest buy the actual book if you are interested and study at a leisurely pace. Even though, I found this book tedious and not very interesting.

Hard to stay focused with the narrator

I really did not like the narrator to this short synopsis of the real essentialism book.
1) I thought I purchased the real essentialism book THIS IS NOT IT
2) the narrators voice is robotic and so hard to stay focused with. I gave up listening to this within the first few chapters. I do not recommend.
