Story Telling well explained!
This book was a pleasure to listen. I learned a lot of tools I’ll use when selling and teaching.

A few good take aways
I would reorder this book if a different narrator were to read the book. This is not a novel and the narrator tried to read it like it was. I realized the actual content was worth listening to so I upped the speed of the reader to 1.25 and I was able to make it to the end. I'm not trying to be hurtful, I'm certain with the right book the narrator would have been fine. I found it a bit ironic that the book states more than a few times to "know your audiance."
