Very poor performance

Performance: The author narrates her own book probably from her house, the result is a poor echoing narration with too much oscillation in pitch. And we pay the same price of a high quality narration made in a proper studio, this shows that the author is cheap and selfish. She also promote herself in the entire book.

Story: The book is not bad in itself but it's basically a compilation of her good readings she probably made throughout her life. So there's nothing from her own creation but a compilation of the good gurus out there, in that sense, it is better to go straight to the gurus rather than reading her books.
The book is a self autobiography as well, and we can see she is a recovered doormat, in that sense, she gives good tips on how to say "no" in certain situations which in my opinion was the best part of the book as she exemplifies the situations and teaches the listeners how to say a collected 'no', but apart from this, there isn't much to add up.
In my opinion, the other weak point in the book especially coming from someone in the psychology field was the reference of Oprah Winfrey, Kate Perry, Mandela and so forth as role models.
