A highly recommendable book for any kind of business people. I found most of the case studies applies directly to the organization where I work and it helped me to understand some of the business policies and behaviours. This is a good reading of you are thinking about being promoted or applying to a higher position.

Needs to invest in better audio/performer

The book has very interesting topics and points of view regarding how is it to live with narcissist partner, and how to identify this kind of people. the examples given are useful but they’re not enough. unfortunately the book is vague about managing this kind of relationships in practical terms, and it is not clear enough about tangible/substantial consequences on someone’s mental health when involved with a narcissist. Also, the beauty of the topic is opaqued by an appalling quality of audio, and the way in which the book is “read” instead of being “told”. The autor should allow a more experienced story teller to read her book, or at least, have a close look on how other performers apply proper story-telling techniques.

The book encouraged me to read even more about the topic from other sources

Even if the story is not new, this is a book that will make you feel sad when you realise it is over! Especially the performance, Stephen has a great ability to keep you interested, no matter what’s the topic of the book.

enjoyable!

Very nice contents, interesting points of view and real stories. The book transports you to the exact picture of the situation and stimulates your imagination...specially the performance. A very vivid and energetic voice inviting you to be engaged until the end.

Excellent content, narrator needs improvement

This book is tremendously interesting, such a good content, however, it was pretty difficult for me to engage in the book due to the narrator, I recommend this book to be narrated with more energy and a totally different tone of voice. I had to leave it for a while then retake it, then leave it... I couldn’t listen to it consistently...

Excellent !

I enjoyed the narrator’s energy... not as much as I enjoyed the content of this book. Highly recommended for people who likes to question themselves about future and how world works... I absolutely love this author!

Simple but “tasty”

I loved this book, simple, full of content, makes us think and question ourselves and our future as a human species.

Too repetitive

The idea about having a genuine purpose to make things is nice, but the book is too repetitive and too immersed into apple, virgin, and Walmart... 3 companies of which we have heard good enough from plenty of other authors. The book would have been perfect if the author had taught us about how to discover and how to apply that “why” ourselves.

It Could be better

A bit repetitive, good think is that is up to date with trends like social media and how they are affecting the self-awareness. I liked the last chapter about the death denial. It could be better in the sense of not using the same tools or just being another self-improvement book
