VERY frustrating. I was hoping to learn something about patenting ideas. This book speaks at a painfully low level. The author spends most of the time advising the listener on how to GET an idea, so the book is very poorly titled. Annoyingly, the level of ideas he "guides" you to achieving are things like: a wire-rim to hold open garbage bags for use while raking leaves, suction cup pads to hold a notepad on a car window, and artificial flowers attached to a greeting card.
If you listen to this book be prepared to spend many hours of your time listening to cutesy and totally irrelevant sayings and ad pitches for you to go to the author's website so you can pay $180 for him to evaluate your idea. If you are interested in picking up some actual information about licensing or patents, you will have to wait MANY hours to get even the smallest tidbit. Most of the book is motivational sayings i.e. "You can DO it!" or "You've got to positively imagine your goals!!". It really makes the listener feel like they are on a special episode of Oprah specifically for imbeciles.
I blame myself for not researching the author more before purchaing the book, but this is the first Audible book I have not enjoyed. Hopefully, Audible will discontinue this product as soon as possible so that others will not feel that they've been screwed out of their money.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Not worth it, this is an outdated book and refers often to pre email. There is some sound content, but it's so so old that I just didn't get the sense that it was up to day.
