Less Ranting and Complaining more Information
Almost couldn't finish it...
but I did so that I could justify writing a review. This book might perhaps best be enjoyed by the manufacturers of the many products Ms. Stack pushes in page after page. I have never heard so many brand names and web site addresses in my life. I have to wonder if she was paid for product placement.
I would have appreciated hearing some anecdotes and examples from some source other than her family. Her kids' chore list, their favorite dishes and toys, the cute thing they said at church, etc. Also there was one long list after another, which maybe worked better in print but was a disaster in audio. I think I came closest to deleting the rest of the book unheard when the narrator rattled off an entire grocery store layout.
I actually checked the speed on my iPhone because I was sure it had gotten set at 2X. Nice for getting through the many lists but a major detraction otherwise. There was little variety in her delivery---a touching or humorous story got the same inflection as a list (!) of what to keep in the glovebox. The chapters seem to be divided into many confusing sections and sub-sections, the titles of which all had to be announced rapidly whenever we started a new one. Again, (maybe worked better in print.)
Disappointment. Wish I'd saved that credit. Either of the David Allen books, as another reviewer suggested, would be much more useful.
