"Austin Kleon is positively one of the most interesting people on the Internet ... Kleon makes an articulate and compelling case for combinatorial creativity and the role of remix in the idea economy." (The Atlantic)
"Breezy and fun, and yes, scary. Scary because it calls your bluff." (Seth Godin)
"Short - as Unexpected"
I actually bought this book summary by mistake.
Therefore, I am only disappointed about myself.
The performance is very good. I trust they summarize the key points, properly.
I thank the author for summarizing.
"Not actually a book"
That's all, I guess just read the description before buying. I have 5 more words required....
"An amazing value and time saved!"
This was awesome. I only listen to books because I don't have the quiet time available to sit with a good book. I was bummed when I saw the author didn't have an audio book available! I wanted to read this book so bad but knew I would likely never read the book. So glad this audible summary was available!! I was able to read and understand the big ideas in the book within the time its takes me to get ready. I will be buying more FlashBook Book Summaries!
"Save a few minutes and a few bucks"
This book could have been written as a blog post and I still would have felt like it was a waste of time to read. I don't know why it has so many good reviews. Maybe all friends of the author. Who knows? Save a few bucks and don't waste your time on this book.
"Not a book!"
I wish i had realized its not a book, but a summary. What a waste of credit!
