Although people may be skeptical as to why a person would spend her life on such a subject, Kondo has developed a fool-proof method.

repeats the same thing over and over

poorly done. repeats the same message over and over, sometimes even the exact same sentence a few consecutive times. 10 minutes of useful information drearily restated.

Just OK

It was hard to understand the reader's accent. Some parts repeated, making the storyline a little unclear. The book, itself was a good summary of the real book. I think I would rather get the original audiobook instead.

Interesting but didn't like the narrator

I found the narrator difficult to listen to. I found her voice irritating and felt that had a negative impact on the book. The subject matter was quite interesting and time will tell if the techniques are successful.

Grateful

I was grateful to have this summary rather than read the whole book, mostly found it useful and full of common sense but took away a few details I'll consider further

Repeats phrases every now and then

Good summary but appears to be poorly edited as the reader just repeats sentences if she makes what seems to be a mistake.
