Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant.

What did you like most about Your Brain at Work?

Not sure why but I started to listened to this book before and it really didn’t connect with me. Was irritated with the style and the characters. Clearly it must have been my mindset at the time because recently I had a long journey and thought I may as well give it another go and switch to something else if I still don’t like it. Wow! - what a difference on the second attempt. Unlike other listeners, I found the scenarios really helpful and the information I took away is making a real difference. This is the first book that has actually helped me understand the days that just go wrong and how to change it and of course why some days just flow.
I plan to replay it whilst not in the car and take more notes so I can refer to them and help keep me on track.
Highly recommend this, but be aware that you may need to hang in there and get into the subject and characters before fully understanding the message.

As my heading suggests this book is not without some merit but should be renamed God exists and here’s why. One comment was “you have to be insane not to believe in god” Really badly narrated as well, it is extremely fast and doesn’t even draw breath between chapters. Very disappointing.
