I want to say that I'm not new to Baje's books. I have read "A Goal DIgger's Guide," and, as with that book, there was some good, practical advice in this book, but the editing and production left much to be desired. On Production: The music was loud and distracted from Baje's voice when she was introducing the chapter; It was jarring and didn't fit the book. There were several times when sentences - or in one case, nearly a whole paragraph - were repeated, as though multiple takes were recorded, but the extras were not eliminated in the final cut. Baje herself narrates, which could have been an excellent way to connect to her readers/audience, but her cadence is halting and choppy. She struggles to read her own material. On Editing: There are a few times she misuses words. For example, when she uses "ranted," which is when someone goes on and on in an angry, unhappy way, to describe one of her friends speaking with effusive positivity about a recommended book. Simple mistakes like these could be avoided with some pretty basic dictionary usage. Not only that, but the over usage of conjunctive phrases using "and" for emphasis is just unimaginative and basic, as is most of her writing, honestly. I have no doubt that a woman so successful absolutely has a story to tell, insights to share and more practical advice on how to achieve one's goals. I just think she should have hired professionals to help her tell it.
