Like listening to a robot - not very engaging

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would change the narrator. The book has some good info, but it was hard to concentrate to what was being said as the narrator was very monotone like a robot. No emotion at all.

How could the performance have been better?

The book is not engaging. I found my mind was drifting off to think about other things. This is unlike the books from Harvard Business Review who are really engaging and can listen with ease.

Was The Leadership Challenge Sixth Edition worth the listening time?

No. I have the book too which is good, but I didn;t like the audio book at all.

Any additional comments?

Get the book instead.
