superficial and read like a children's book

There are some valuable thoughts in the material (most of which I have already been aware) but those are laid out only in a very simplistic way. This is only amplified by the narrators avid style, which I'd find more appropriate for a children's book.
I completely missed depth and focus on actual implementation. Generally, I find handing the reader "just do this every day and you won't have your problem any more"-style recipies is not too appropriate, especially if the target is highly stressed people (as I infer from the simple language).
Also features this outrageous, yet seemingly influential "monkey on your back" article, which basically delivers the rationale for so many of today's leaders refusing to do their jobs, i.e. lead. Towards the end it gets a little better, especially with the articles by Tony Schwartz.
