Enjoyable but hard to see Sanderson's hand

Lacks the depth, complexity and character development of his other novels. I enjoyed it for what it was, a rebellious young adult finding their way to being a starfighter pilot.

This might be Sanderson writing with an eye on something that could be made into a movie.

Trite and at times sexist twaddle.

I had to give up on this book, a sad waste of an Audible credit. These are my opinions, you can make up your own minds, some readers clearly like this work

For me, the author muddles leadership, loyalty and brand building to make the book fit with the title.

I had to stop at the point where the author, clearly assuming only men read his books, suggested that the type of car you have is correlated to the type of woman you are trying to attract.

I am a guy and I thought this was terminally patronising to both sexes. I rarely give up on an audio book , but for me this one had no merit.

Is this a joke?

I have purchased a lot of language audio. This is by a long way the most useless. One hour of obscure phrases such as "I have zipped my files" no explanation, no pronunciation, no break down of the phrases. Not sure who would benefit from this? Very cheap but you get what you pay for.
