Really not very good. Too much theory

[{ "answer" : "I feel the writer was just writing in theory, talking about theory models of marketing. Which is fine to a certain extent although most of it was just waffle, nothing practical that can be used. Theory on its own is useless.", "type" : "Overall", "question" : "Would you try another book written by Simon Middleton or narrated by Lucy Paterson?", "id" : 226, "typeString" : "overall" }, { "answer" : "Too much waffle and nothing practical", "type" : "Story", "question" : "Would you recommend What You Need to Know About: Marketing to your friends? Why or why not?", "id" : 193, "typeString" : "story" }, { "answer" : "The narrator was okay.", "type" : "Performance", "question" : "What didn’t you like about Lucy Paterson’s performance?", "id" : 213, "typeString" : "performance" }, { "answer" : "", "type" : "Genre", "question" : "If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from What You Need to Know About: Marketing?", "id" : 253, "typeString" : "genre" }, { "answer" : "", "type" : "Misc", "question" : "Any additional comments?", "id" : -1, "typeString" : "misc" } ]
