The authors provide specific steps and actions to take to maintain high performance without burning out. It's eye opening to see how some precepts we hold as true to be completely unsupported by science. Listen to all of the book if you're willing to take your game to the next level.

Gritty with dark humour

This book is based on real life events. Theres a jaded tone to the book, one that all cops have. There are horrific cases and stunning cases. all told matter of factly. It's not for the faint of heart but we'll worth the listen.

An excellent addition to the series. it's fascinating to listen to another geopolitical dynamic to WWII. Always has a touch of humour and the thread of a love story with Diana. Real characters that show the multiple aides of the Irish conflict.

This is such a terrific and infuriating story. it's terrific to see the little guy win and it's infuriating to read.aboyt the grind and suffering and illness and sacrifice that was needed to have justice. it's eye opening to see how the author's law firm and family stood by the author for decades. It's maddening to hear all of the legal shenningans and lies and distortions DuPont did to squirm out of accepting responsibility. it's well worth the listen. straight and matter of fact with some key legal insights and some important testimonies from those directly impacted.

Each story makes you think. The prose is crisp and there is always some aspect of the story that drives home a deeper truth. The narrator was excellent and had a broad range of voices.

This real life story is both thrilling and terrifying. A fantastic glimpse into the world of high finance and international power politics. Support this book because of its compelling story. Great narration.

Another hit for Benn. The MC uses fantastic lingo that immerses the reader in the setting. The MCs love interest is strong with independent goals. There's enough world building to set the scene without overwhelming you. A few jokes here and there. it's really the characters that make the book. The narrator nailed the accents.

The characters are interesting. The story flows two families for multiple years as they navigate the politics leading up to the American Civil War. There's a grittiness to the characters, particularly Ashton. This book is not for those who dislike authors who head hop. Excellent narration.

The author provides concrete steps on how to order your writing and editing to gain maximum efficiency. The presentation is logically and will help all authors improve their prose, quality of story, characterisation, and editing habits. Narration was great.
