What a waste of time
Nothing new. A collection of worn out advice; "you need vision, focus, enthusiasm, purpose and love! plus few other trite advice. It's as though we have all been waiting for the author to tell us that to succeed you need enthusiasm! like there is a switch that you can just flick on!
Why anyone need to write a whole book when a small article would be an overkill is beyond me. Save your money and 3 hours of pointless listening.
Too Painful to Listen to
The general idea is ok. You should be positive. ok, got it, done. I've just summed up the book. Not a bad premise for a book but wow.
Absolutely horrible writing skills. I mean this was killing me to get through it. really the writer just did not have any ability to make a realistic scenario. All of the characters were horrible sitcom stereotypes that had really bad dialog. I could not imagine a single one of these conversations happening in real life.
The narration was also over the top and horrible. Just stereotypical voices and mannerism not even worthy of a show on the Disney Channel.
The premise was simple and could have been good if it was just a book and didn't try to go for this horrible fable. Just bad.
Honestly the counter to this would be the Five Dysfunctions of a team. Same basic concept but MUCH better delivery.
