Wast of money will get refund

Admittedly I thought I'd ordered the actual audio book! I listened, complete waste of money.

It's a summary of what's in the actual book

I wish it would have been more about the 5 things and not about the author

Summary - Not the Real Book

My fault for not paying more attention. But the title is MISLEADING and should be more clear (e.g. put something like 'Analysis of' at beginning of title).

This is a summary not the real book. In fact, the 'look inside' on Amazon gives you the table of contents and first few pages which is pretty much everything in this 'summary analysis'.

WARNING INSTAREAD

I accidentally downloaded the insta read. Listening to this was essentially the equivalent of reading the table of contents.

Instaread review

Interesting high level overview of this book. It is a great refresher if you’ve already read the book. it is also great for “vetting” a book, as to not get 1/3rd of the way into a book before you decide it is a waste of your time.

However, you are not getting the full message and only a high level overview. I find Instaread is awesome if you’ve already read a book and want a quick refresher. It’s okay otherwise

Just ok

Not really a great re-cap, I feel like I’ll have to read the whole book.

I end up re-reading (listening) this book over and over and continue to make changes, for the best.

A trick to get you to spend a credit on nothing

I thought this was the actual book. I didn't realize that it was a short description of the book. What a complete waste of good money. I wouldn't be so pissed if there was an option to return.

Not at all what I expected

Any additional comments?

Won't be buying any summarized versions of books again in future. Absolutely useless. Waste of money.

Sweet and Short!

Really liked the direct nature of the book. I found it an easy listen with great resources. Just greatful that a friend told me to read it.
