Good book, a struggle to listen.
I'm a trainer, so I'm always looking for ways to creatively tell the story - and TED talks does it about as well as anyone. The strategy was familiar - identify your passion, outline major points, etc. Unfortunately, it was a struggle to listen because of the reader's varying pitch and volume. The voice trailed off several times and I had to rewind a couple of times to get the message.
