Stop Trying Too Much

Ok so I get the author wants to convey a strong proactive flavour to the listener, but I found his delivery to be unnecessarily aggressive.
But the kind of cringe aggressive where someone is trying a bit too much.

Wasn’t my cup of tea because of his brashness.

My Frequent Re-Read

Everyone should read and re-read this timeless and indispensable book and the world would be a better place.
I listen to this book at least 4 times a year as the teachings are invaluable.

Get To The Point Pleeeeeease!!

Too much repetition and too much rambling...

This book was so frustrating to listen to due to the authors long-winded (and frankly boring) detours around the point at hand.
I was scratching my head puzzled as to why he talked in great detail about the nature of lobsters behaviour for over half an hour for example. Eventually he brought it back to the subject at hand but by then I was so bored my mind had wandered to what I was going to make for lunch.

This is such a shame as rules 1-2 of the 12 rules actually made sense and were valid.

The author also needs to understand everyone in the world isn’t Christian, so his constant references to the subject actually annoyed me.

Sadly I couldn’t put up with his ramblings and deleted the book. Waste of money for me.

Fantastic

Insightful, well written, well narrated. One of the best books on the psychology of persuasion and influence I've read to date.

Long-winded, Unstructured, Boring

To sum it up, this is one of the most long winded, boring audio books on productivity I have to date purchased.

The information has no cohesive structure. There was no core ethos for my brain to compute.
I've just skipped forward about 45 minutes of the author talking about how to organise your "in tray."
And he's still talking!

I dare to think how much of my day this would have taken if I'd brought the paper book.

I expect all the positive reviews for this book have amassed from dated feedback. Thankfully, today in 2016, there are better written wonderfully 'to the point' books out there on the subject of time management and self betterment.

Please read Bryan Tracy's "No Excuses". Succinct, structured, with actionable checklists at the end of each chapter. Hugely eye opening.

Learned Some Gems

Really enjoyed the sincere and genuine delivery of the author. I generally only like to buy audio books where the writer is narrating. It adds credibility and punch.

Whilst Mark Schaefer covered many content marketing pearls of wisdom I've learned before, there were some fresh and insightful twists.

Externally useful and relevant book. This will be one I re-listen to.

You can't get better than that.

Thankyou Mr Schaefer.
