The book is well-written and insightful. The audio is distracting. The reading is somewhat monotonous, and is backed (oddly) by a distracting musical loop that is nearly a lullaby, the combination making it difficult to stay focused on the material.

Would you try another book from Michael Cornwall and/or Michael Cornwall?
What could Michael Cornwall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
We could have skipped the obnoxious background music and provided some content editing to the book as well. Parables about childhood are great if they lead somewhere.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I read another review before purchasing this book which suggested that the author's Boston accent was a detraction. I would disagree but would say that his flat affect was a distraction. He reads the book as though he's uncomfortable reading a story for the audience. Perhaps that's why the background music was added. I opted not to finish the book. I realized with about an hour and a half left, that there were no prizes for finishing and if it hadn't been tied together well so far, there was no reason to expect that to change.
Any additional comments?
I wish I'd liked it better. The title suggests it's going to be a fun examination of emotional intelligence. Instead it feels like a long winded therapy session for the author. Meh.

I found the content very useful, particularly how a lot of points are effectively reinforced throughout the chapters. The recording was shockingly bad and the narration is monotonous, so it isn't the easiest thing to listen too.
