A bloated pamphlet
Where to start... First of all, it was an hour of audio slowed to an hour and a half (It only sounded normal by playing it at 1.5 speed), followed by other material. The drag was so bad that I felt it was a blatant attempt to bloat it. Then it was only one nugget of research in a mountain of bible verses, anecdotes, and personal views. This was ok if you want christian-based inspiration, such as what Mike Huckabee does on the weekend, junk if you want real advice. I'm sorry I bought it, a fool for finishing it, and a chump for spending a good credit on a veeeerrry slowly read magazine article.

Decent message, slow narrator.
What did you like best about What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend? What did you like least?
I like the idea the book portrays about in order to have a good relaxing weekend you need to have "anchors," certain activities that give your weekend character and shape. You also need to plan rest and relaxation into your weekend. Overall message was good and I took some nuggets away from this book.
This book had the worst narrator I've ever heard. I had to speed it up to 1.5x the regular speed and even still the way she read commas and periods was so annoying and unnatural.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
slow. so slow. so so slow
