don't judge a book by its cover - this is a gem

This book had more information for the length of time than most self-help books out there.

Wish I would've bought the paper book

Narrator is good and the content is good. However, he often references images in the book that I really wish I could see. This is my first audible book, so maybe I'm missing some way to view these (description also says it comes with a PDF guide, but I don't see it anywhere), I would definitely get the paper book though .

Essential Reading for Students (and professionals)

I'm not a student, but I wish this book was around when I was.
Cal's arguments are composed, lean, and riveting.
The Case Studies and variety of specific examples make this text stand out.

I'm an executive who always needs to write and study, and I found a plethora of applicable steps.

I wish it had more on memorization. I'm in nursing

I'm a nursing student and this seemed geared more towards liberal arts or math majors. not so much nursing. still a very good and useful book. valuable information for habits and life. worth the buy.
