the free podcast still costs too much

this review is of the free podcast about this book and I didn't even get past the first episode. this is a must read if you have a 1950's mindset where everyone is out to get you if your black or female as white males obviously get treated better in interviews as well as live (aparently). also if you like to mix the old with the new with words like personal branding because were all products now now people. so please buy this book if you prefer words like personal branding over professional personality or if you want to be politically correct and at the same time sacrifice your common sense and believe you aren't achieving because racist and sexist people are out to get you.
