I've thought about getting the book in paperback beore, but this is actually a little better....and cheaper. As the book scrolls there's a female voice reading it (Which seems a bit strange considering who wrote it and the subject matter....But absolutely no problem). Having someone read it as I read it has one other effect....I candigest meaning easier then just reading myself, and that's important in this book because it's all instructional....In case I ever decide to become a Dr. Evil and raise my own army.
As for the content of the book. I've heard that you can take the lessons in this book and apply them o other work and/or life situations. I guess I can see that in some areas, but in others in might be a bit of a challenge to figure out how some lessons translate over to other things in life. None the less it is very interesting to me because I am a big fan of Conn Igglude who writes books about Ghengis Khan, and Ceasor that have huge battle scenes. I think it'd be interesting to see how these lessons stack up against some of those battles....
Really cool book..I like how you can pause it, then resume it later. I wish you had more control over the rewind/fast forward, but that's not a big deal. Anyways, good book. It's cool, because you don't need wifi to listen. Plus, it's an audiobook, and a regular book, since you can read along. The iScroll thing is so cool.
I can read and listen along, or just read or listen whenever I feel like. Any more books like this?
