What was most disappointing about Kerry Johnson’s story?

This was not about NLP and self-discipline. It was vaguely about NLP, and SD was put into the title to sell it. I think I was into chapter 4 before he stopped talking about himself, and I'm still none the wiser about HOW to use NLP to improve SD

Would you be willing to try another one of Kerry Johnson’s performances?

Nope.

Best philosophical and practical self management book on the planet. This audio version a bit short but still valuable.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

When I got it I couldn't wait to start. By chapter 3 I can't wait for it to end. I thought it was a PD book but it has turned out to be Marc Woods' biography. His is a story about overcoming severe challenges to become great but this book is, well, all about how great he is/was. So it's an okay bio, but not a PD book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Marc Woods again?

Probably not.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

He was reading it like a novel and perhaps that detracted from the content. There was almost a smug wink read into some of the content, like 'you'll never believe it but it was cold that February morning, (sardonic tutting and a roll of the eyes)'.

Could you see Personal Best being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No - not that kind of story.

I was patient, I waited until near the end but Brian - just adding 'Self-Discipline and " to a chapter heading on things you've written about before (repeatedly) doesn't make it a book about self-discipline. I've read widely in this area (Covey, Robbins, Ziglar, Rohn, Canfield) and 1) there's not an original thought here and 2) I was looking on advice about self-discipline and there really wasn't any. Just 'Self Discipline and ..... business, wealth, work, time management. In effect, chapters about those subjects with Self-Discipline added to the title but little actual advice on SD!
You're a good writer but you're getting repretitive. And stop pausing after 'the' or 'and' - it sounds like you've forgotten what you're going to say.

In a nutshell, the advice is good but it is NOT what the title promises. Buy something cheaper.
