Futile with shallow plot

Overall

It's my second Lisbet Salander book by David Lagenkrantz and I struggled with it even more than with the previous chapter. The story is so stretched that one loses the interest, there's no suspense at all and the whole book is just badly written.

Better skip this book

Narration was ok. Content wise, listening to this book is like screening Google search results. The author just goes through names of different fintech companies and lists a handful of general info about them. Also, I guess this book is rather outdated by now.

Narrator was fine. The book itself gives a good overview of the growth hacking strategy and if you've never heard of agile, you might be impressed by the simplicity of the 'growth hacking' method. This book can give you few good experiment ideas but don't expect it to be any book of revelation.

Save your money and pick another audiobook

Unless you've never heard of agile or innovation concepts, don't buy this book. The only takeaway you'll have from this book (apart from wasted time and money) is that agile is far better than the old school way of delivering projects. I managed to go halfway through the book and still didn't hear how to actually do things "the agile way". Just buzzwords, nothing else. On the narration side, that one was actually pretty good and I would like to hear LJ Ganser reading a good thriller for me :)

Couldn't stand even 5 minutes with this chaotic narration. Even when you reduce the audio speed, it's hard to follow.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more? In order to achieve high performance in a clever way, you should get enough sleep, stay away from noisy urban areas and do some meditation or have a walk, preferably in the nature. Ah, and remember to have regular breaks. If you've never ever heard of any of these tips, then this book is for you. Otherwise, just don't bother with this audiobook. What will your next listen be? Ancient Greek philosophers already had the body and mind balance figured out so I think I'll go for that. What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like? Actually, the performance was the only reason I tried several times to continue with this audiobook. I really enjoyed his pace, tone of his voice and intonation. I really had an impression that he understands what he is reading. Hence the top note for the performance. If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Peak Performance? The whole book is just nonsense. Don't expect to learn anything from it. I mean, you really want to make money on giving advise like "Don't use drug stimulants, better turn to meditation"?
