Some good concepts, but boring and self absorbed
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The person reading it was sooooo slow. I had to speed it up to make it bearable.
The book comes across as more of an ad in branding for the Author giving tips and advice but basically just stroking his ego on what he did with a few tips along the way.
Would you ever listen to anything by Dan Schawbel again?
Probably not, but would give it a go if it had great ratings.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Mike Chamberlain?
Anyone that can read faster.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
Some of the information is outdated, such as using the site technorati which no longer exists, so that whole chapter is irrelevant.
- Roger Swanson
