It's Really That Simple

Dammit Just Ask is really that easy. Whether you're in a corporate world or self employed, the concepts, stories, experiences and advice are on target and effective for business relationships AND your personal life. J.Paul Nadeau writes in a down to earth sort of way and doesn't over complicate his very important concepts and ideas. I found the book entertaining, informative, inspirational and useful. I reference it often. As for the narration, well this is the same narrator that did J.Paul's first audiobook Take Control of Your Life. I like when authors can do that - keep the same narrator. Listeners develop a "relationship" with their narrators and look forward to something new. Steven Osarczuk delivers a straight forward but light hearted approach to the material. His voice is deep and confident but soothing to listen to. He performs the work not just reads it and you feel like there are people behind this book who know what they are talking about becasue they experienced it themselves and that you can trust what they say. I read somewhere that the narrator was also a police officer and a hostage negotiator like J.Paul Nadeau was... coincidence? If so, it works in our favor. Great read - Great Listen...
