Very Good Ideas, Very poor example.

Any additional comments?

I'll make this simple. The book had good content value and the tips are easy to apply. Nonetheless the author clearly lacks the ability to follow its own advice. The book is terribly boring, the explanations are convoluted to the point a feel that the book could have 1/5th of the size.

I am glad the author chosen Tim as the narrator, because sometimes he was the only thing going for the book.

To conclude: follow what the author says, but not what he does.

too long

this audio could be shortened to 2 hrs, there is alot of retention which was very boring to me. I really believe the author could make this audio much better.
