I enjoy listening to books like this. Audio books are a strange phenomenon, for me the beauty in books is the act of taking it out, turning the page, looking to see where you are in the book, how is this chapter progressing? But with audio most of those answers aren’t readily available. It’s not suspenseful it’s off putting for me. However when the book is a self help guide it’s a different matter. I’ve been listening to this on my daily journey to and from work. A time normally reserved for thinking. It’s been positive though. As I contemplate the challenge each day is about to bring I have started to think what do I wish the outcome to be? You’ve a potentially awkward meeting ahead, what do you want out of it? You’ve a mountain of work on your desk, what really needs to be done initially. It’s like writing out your list and getting through it. Hughes can help you through it
