What disappointed you about The Dating Playbook For Men: A Proven 7 Step System To Go From Single To The Woman Of Your Dreams?
Disappointing book, read by the author in very constant tone and FAR TOO FAST! It's hard to keep up and being the author doesn't mean being the narrator unless you've had drama/voice/previous experience. I've given up on it, and the content as well which I find jumpy and not for me.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew Ferebee?
Just someone who could read much more slowly, with pauses, and who you can actually listen to for 5 hours. It takes skill - I'd have gone with an experienced audiobook narrator.

Excellent book and I thoroughly recommend to any man out there. Be a grounded man
If you could sum up The Dating Playbook For Men: A Proven 7 Step System To Go From Single To The Woman Of Your Dreams in three words, what would they be?
forget 3 word summaries. It was transformative! This book is amazing and it has something for everyone.
What shocked me the most was how much it improved my confidence before I even tried any of it. I began listening to it after a crappy breakup and within hours was like "f-yeah, I'm pumped to start bettering myself and showing the new me off to the world!" Seriously, I poured through this thing in less than a week and found myself doing many things I was previously scared to do. I don't care to relay all the details but before I even finished the book I got out there to practice the teachings and was rewarded with a lovely little success story!
I love how it begins by directing the focus at the reader's own life first and facilitating some self examination. Andrew does a wonderful job of exploring obstacles and self limitations in the readers own life and how those things have consequences when it comes to women. 4 main parts are:1.The grounded man: who is he? why do you need to be him?2.How to date: (what most people probably get his book for, but NOT as critical as part 1) the nitty gritty of approaching women, being engaging in conversation, getting a phone number, following up on it with texts, planning future dates, going on dates, going home with a girl, building a relationship3. Relationships. staying in the right one, leaving a bad one. building the right one up4 Mastery: how to use first 3 parts and knowing what level of competency you are at and what might be preventing you from reaching the next
Lastly, I really loved that this book was least cheesy/sleezy thing I ever read. I was worried about it being too much about "improving game." It isn't and stresses this. It's about being the best version of yourself and how to present this to others including women. It also explains such and such is what a woman is thinking/looking for even if she isn't aware of it, and this is what you need to do about it, and how you can do it in an authentic, genuine way, that won't leave you feeling slimy.
Who was your favorite character and why?
it's self help, not ficiton
What about Andrew Ferebee’s performance did you like?
He sounds sincere. I believe him.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
comfort talking to women is an extension of basic social skills and the later should be solid before moving on to the former.
Any additional comments?
if it has a fault, it is at times he seems to be rattling off cliches. But those phrases only became cliche because they have been found to be true time and time again and bear repeating. Also they are peppered in appropriately. I.e. "Don't talk about it, be about it!" But like I said, what good motivational/self-help book doesn't stress the importance of implementing the contained knowledge?

There's no secret recipe. No gimmick. No trick. The book is very true to itself.
The first part of the book was a very refreshing and motivational look on the importance of becoming the man you want to be first, before going after women.
Second part of the book goes more in depth with the pre-stages of "chasing" a women to fostering a relationship. He goes in depth on texting, first dates logistics, getting her back home, what to do what not to do, and how to be a grounded man for her.
My only disappointment is not in the content but the quality of the audio book. He stumbles with his words here and there. He rushes his sentences and the editing seems like it was done by a beginner. If you can look (hear) past that it is a great and motivating listen.
