This Book is Halfway Done

The author did an excellent job of identifying the problems, with very little effort in offering the solutions. He spends a lot of time perfectly describing the issue, the pain associated with it, and potential causes - and then a wisp of time offering super high-level ideas without getting deep into the answers.

John Burke seems to love offering these lists of things to do, but doesn't want to spend the time detailing the items in those lists. A "typical" list item would be something like, "try to be more positive in how you perceive your goals", which leaves the listener saying, "well... duh... AND..?"

The book is 1 hour and 14 minutes. If John could go back and make the solutions and the answers less vague and more concrete and perhaps create a 2 hours and 30 minutes book... then I think he could really have something great here.
