Barbara Oakley gives a straightforward performance of her audiobook, which challenges the cliché of following one's passion and encourages listeners to consider the possibilities of making major career shifts, learning new skills, and building up areas of weakness to create more opportunities for growth, change, and fulfillment. Oakley's evenly paced but cheerful reading makes her ideas easy to take in and also makes dramatic change seem possible. Her anecdotes are powerful--whether she's recounting a story of someone making a dramatic career shift or of someone learning to turn a weakness into a strength. Oakley includes periodic questions and exercises throughout the book to encourage listeners to apply the concepts she covers to their own lives. Practical and motivating.
