Worth the listen!

Nothing new here content wise, but very effectively structured. Short and to the point.

Good content. Less-good narration.

The way this was narrated did not seem to represent the cadence of the text well. It seemed like it was being read in almost a "run-on" way. Not enough natural beats of pause to separate sentences, headings, or points. The content is good but is not highlighted well by how it's read.

Another home run book from John Maxwell

This book was both easy to read and inspirational! It challenged me to dig into my own abilities to l lead myself better, to be a better learner, a deliberate learner. Highly recommend this book.

So good!

You really need the print copy of any John Maxwells books. So many nuggets that you want to apply and go back to again and again.

Good back average narration

Reminded me that I need to check both the narrator as well as the book reviews.

The power of audible books comes as much from the narrator as the content of the book. The content of the book was good, nothing too ground breaking but some good summaries and takeaways. The narrator was rather monotone though and lacked the adequate pauses and inflection to make the story engaging and enjoyable.

Having listened to over 50 books now, I’ve found that if the narrator is average, the book is average (no matter how powerful the content). Next time I’ll listen to the sample!
