I love all of these Masters at Work audiobooks so far, and there are more of these coming in September 2019. I don’t know of any other books (or audiobooks) that offer narratives in such detail about the experiences of the work world. I find it really engaging to be allowed to slip into the behind the scenes settings and visit these consuming workplaces. I love being a guest in a restaurant, and I enjoyed learning what goes on where a guest can’t see, in kitchens and in restaurant careers.
