I thought this book was great!!! however, really should not be available in abridge version... leaves a lot to be desired. Story/plot is very interesting and definitely one we can relate to --- in these times.
I very much enjoyed the development of Dan Porter's character as he struggles to find himself and his goals in life. After losing his job he finds that he never really enjoyed his job in the first place. Facing a decision to get back into the same rut in which he can feel comfortably professional, or to take a chance in a different line of work presents a real dilema for him, a dilema which more and more professionals today end up facing. Very good story development and meaningful delivery.
This book had the makings of a good listen. I think that the abridged version was just too short and left too many of the details of the story out. The book was so short it almost seemed a summary rather than a story. It did not give you enough time to connect to any of the characters before the story was over.
I enjoyed this book enough to look for other books by this author. I found none. I would reccommend this audio book
