I want my money back...

Without the stories, the whole book seems dry and boring.

It’s hard to internalize points without a story...

On top of that the narrator was especially dry and difficult to listen to. No voice inflections no passion, no pauses... everything you expect in a good narrator...

I cannot recommend this summary-book because I truly believe it lacks what’s needed for the listener.

Great synopsis

The summary Is concise, compelling, and creates an appetite to listen to the entire book. The only reason for taking away a star on performance was the lack of pauses between key thoughts.

Over all, it was very very well worth the 1-Audible credit!

Thank you!

Good but short. Just a quick summary as described

Narrator was good, material was repeated to much. Left wondering what was missed from the complete book.

Alright

Not blown away by this summary, the delivery of the reader is bland and the content is ok. Learned a few things tho. Worth the 30min listen.
