  • If you're looking for something to help you doze off, then this audiobook is right up your alley. I actually own the paperback version and thought listening to it while reading would be a nice combination, but boy was I wrong. The narration is choppy, nasal, and has an uneven flow. It's way too slow for someone like me, who's used to reading at a faster pace. And if you try to speed up the narration, it just ends up sounding like a cartoon. Now, don't get me wrong, the book itself is really good; it's just that the author's reading skills aren't up to par. It's also worth noting that this recording was made back in 2008, so there are some passages and examples that differ from the 2018 edition of the book. So, if you're planning on reading along, be aware that they might not match up.
  • I wish the book was much shorter, and I'm a little disappointed that I stuck with it till the end. It just occurred to me that there is an abridged version available, and maybe I should have given that a shot. If you enjoy hearing repetitive stories with similar life lessons, then this book will be right up your alley. The author is undeniably an incredible person, but maybe not the ideal narrator for this particular book. It pains me to leave this review because there is valuable information within, but the repetition and narration problems hindered my overall experience.
  • To start with, the narrator's voice in this audiobook is really grating. It's like hearing nails on a chalkboard. He has this odd speech impediment and you can even hear the saliva in his mouth. It's as if he has dry mouth throughout the entire recording. Additionally, the entire book harps incessantly on the significance of trust. Honestly, you can save your money and time with this one, because the message is pretty straightforward: trust matters. So, instead of investing in this audiobook, why not just send me your money?
