This book is totally useless. Apart from her annoying voice the speaket givea only generic useless advice like "show up" or "say yes". Complete waste of time.

As an engineer I did not learn much from this book. I write interesting points down while I listen. This book had a total of 8 interesting points for me. It starts really interesting (creative work before reactive work). After that approx. 3 hours is mostly fluff. In the end it starts to get a bit more interesting (practise unnecessary creation in a low pressure environment).

This book is almost entirely based on expert opinions, not on research. To be a "professional at prestiguous company XY" is often enough to be considered as an expert. I also disliked the annoying advertisement for websites after every chapter. Also all examples come from the fields of creative writing or filmmaking. This made them hard to relate for me.

few interesting points

positives
interesting stories

negatives
repitition of common sense knowledge over and over again
structure - no noticable red line, questions or promises given at the beginning are never adressed
too much (common sense) motivation- I feel like 80% of the book is motivation for humor
several minute long imperatives like: "Do X! Do Y Do Z...."
too quick - parts of the book I had to slow down because he speaks so fast
too many quotes - for some parts of the book every other sentence is a quote
too much nonsence
no own findings - the author mainly uses secondary literature basically repeating the findings of others

Interessant

Alles in allem ein interessantes Buch mit anschaulichen Beispielen. Allerdings ließt es sich phasenweise so als wäre Bernd Stromberg der optimale Mitarbeiter. Wie so viele Selbsthilfe Bücher lobt auch dieses Buch die eigenen Techniken in den Himmel und scheitert daran die Anwendbarkeit angemessen einzugrenzen.

The only thing this book teached me is that I will not trust Amazon recommendations so easily anymore. If you need life tips like "Do you taxes", "be nice" and my personal favorite "always have tampons with you" (yes I'm male) this book is for you. I can write a book with more value in a week.
