    "Beep Boop Beep I'm a robot"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Machines


    What was most disappointing about Russell Davis’s story?

    He didn't go into enough detail and skimmed over the information in a monotone voice.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Neil Reeves?

    Someone who has an expression in their voice, someone with soul / personality.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Luckily it was over quick, I wouldn't want to listen to his voice for 8 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    Niche is pronounced like 'Neesh' not like 'Nitch'.

    "5 stars."

    Virtual Assistant is the book for business people who are searching for an approach to take their business to the next level.
    On the off chance that you've ever gotten yourself thinking there sufficiently aren't hours in the day, there is an answer. Furthermore, it won't make you become bankrupt, either. This book is a major help for Virtual Assistant like me, this is for me and VA like me..Now I am more knowledgeable on how I can enhance my work,how to manage customers viably, how to deal my compensation what's more, in future I can shape my own particular group, truly amazing Listen.

    Story
    "Improper grammar, incorrect use of terms/phrases"
    Would you try another book from Russell Davis and/or Neil Reeves?

    Never. This book is poorly written. If this author can't even bother to have his book reviewed and edited by someone who can correct his poor grammar and incorrect use of technical terms and every day phrases before publishing, then why would I look to him as a credible source for career advice?


    Would you ever listen to anything by Russell Davis again?

    Not likely


    Would you be willing to try another one of Neil Reeves’s performances?

    Don't think so


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration. Much disappointment. Didn't even bother to finish the book.


    Any additional comments?

    So sorry to write a poor review, but anyone publishing a book has a responsibility to make sure his/her readers get a quality product, regardless of subject matter, or level of expertise.

    "full of information!"

    While the narration isn't super exciting and there aren't many real life stories referenced; this audio book was quick and to the point. It has really grounded me in my pursuit of becoming a VA and has given me many great ideas on how and where to get started.

    yup.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a big help.I have been a VA for quite a while now,but I still found very informative bits and pieces in this book. I find it short though but packed with helpful information. I would recommend this especially to those who are just starting in the VA world.
