Micromastery--the mastering of a simple, repeatable task such as splitting a log, balancing rocks, or making the perfect omelet--is a rewarding pursuit, though perhaps not an ideal topic for an audiobook. Narrator Roy McMillan energetically explains the rationale for micromastery and rallies listeners to action. It's the second half of the audiobook that's the challenge--step-by-step instructions for 39 micromastery tasks such as "Do a High-Speed Getaway J-Turn," "Juggle Four Balls," and "Make Fire by Rubbing Two Sticks Together." The tasks and tips are well described and practical, and there's lots of fun stuff to pursue. But unless you've mastered the bookmarking feature on your audio player, you'll spend considerable time isolating and repeating the task you wish to learn.
