One Year After cover art

good additional story line, not much for humour.

the lack of humor in this story makes for a very difficult listen at times. there's lots of storyline there's good additional character development but overall a little bit on the heavy side. while Bronson pinchot does a decent job I found the reading in the first book much more entertaining.

It should come as no surprise that a book written, read and researched by an individual with such an immense and impressive career, should be an experience to listen to. I can now affirm that this could not be more of an understatement. Mr. Koppel not only writes with a use of language that is, itself, an incredible lesson but reads it with a level of skill and proficiency that is not experienced in most people's lives. You could not ask for a better production, with more information and a pleasure to listen to, than this book written by this man, on this subject.

This one continued the saga well. Not quite as dark as the first...slightly more mindlessly enjoyable while still being highly educational and keeping me dialed in chapter after chapter. .

Things are definitely darker in the city.

If you loved Going Home, like I did, this citified version may be a little dark given the ending. But there's no question that the challenges Morgan faced on his way home are significantly less eery than the ones these characters face in the city. 'Different kinds of things to think about in this scenario, if you're in an urban area....I'm thinking I want to move to the country. :)

After listening to Going Home for the third time I expected this book to be as good. it wasn't. Boring story poorly performed.

A religion-based book with a reader who sounds like he's about to die, with conversations that are so badly written that I want to stick pencils in my eardrums. Already feeling like I wasted my money. Listen to the preview before you decide. Don't trust any experience you have with the authors other work.

This is starting to feel like a bit of a cash grab. Like turning the Hobbit into three mediocre movies instead of one awesome one. Book 7 and this one could easily be one book, possibly worth book 9 as well...though I don't think I'll be buying it. We didn't need this to be it's own book. Disappointed!

This book puts everything I've ever read, learned or experienced, regarding sales as I've grown my business, into a simple straightforward skill set I can practice, grow and master. I've recommended it to a marketing company I'm working with and the owner has directed his staff to read it. Thanks Jeb. I appreciate the help.

While thus book is more satisfying than the last book, it's still starting to wane. Bit better plot but in my opinion this book and the last one could have been combined into one slightly longer than either. Not sure if I'll keep going. Probably going to take a break for a while.
