Dull and marginally informative

The narrator was very dry and uninteresting. It almost sounded like a robot reading the book. The content was very basic - I learned very little from this summarized version of the book.

Way too slim

I know this is a "slim reads" book, but it only included some key tips. What I did not enjoy was the long pauses between chapters, it did not flow very well. Much too short to be worth anything.

waste of money

Some chapters are only one minute long. Basic info that most everyone knows, the audiobook should be titled idiots guide. This is terrible.

A poor homework assignment for a book

The person who put this together did a poor job. It’s a bad homework assignment. Compiling obvious information for an I enlightened take.

short<br />

Finished it on my ride to work. It has 2 minute chapters laid out more like bullet points. Very short, general common sense & uninformative.
