I have just finished listening to this book for the second time. The theories, the stories and thought provoking ideas really made an impact in my life.
It is a great book with some great insight.

To invest the time into the things that matter most
This book come from the experience of a long time professor in one of the most prestigious institutions on earth. His vantage point in observing a large no of people and students, how their lives unfold, successes and misfortune helps in summing up what matters and what does not. While the book really did not require this length and I guess it helped in giving more time to reflect and soak in the theory using multiple examples.
Claytons story and his emergent strategy that lead him to be an educationist was the most insightful.
I think he brought reflection and soul to the book. The pitch of his voice and tempo was just perfect.
Films rarely give an opportunity to reflect as like a book.
The parallels to the business world and the fallacy of marginal costing were the most insightful.This is as much a business book as a self help book
yes, the process and assumptions are most interesting
Deep Survival by L. Gonzales. The story, analysis and process of how we look at, and understand, ourselves is very interesting.
Highly recommended - bought copies for associates and friends.
This book compares favorably to Covey's 7 Habits in it's relevance, common sense and universality.
He sounded like he could have been the author - no higher praise - for a book of this nature. He was authentic and believable
Its entire openness and candor rang true to me throughout.
I liked the book; it mixes business philosophy with everyday living. I've got a lot of good stories to share with my management team and hopefully something to consider as I live my life...
Clay Christensen, a leading business thinker of our time, missed the boat here, by a wide margin. After a terrific intro, the book ends up being a summary of Christensen's business research with instructions on how folks can use it to help them chart a course in life. Weaved throughout are bits of Christensen's memoir. I think the failure here was publishing a book that was part business, part self-help and part memoir. Separately, the three would be terrific. Combined, it just doesn't work.
The book was well reviewed. Too bad this audio book is not available in MP3 format for those of us who don't have iTunes.
I love audio books when driving as a way to use otherwise lost time
(about 7-8 hours/week).
Who knows...I can't play/hear this book. I don't have iTunes, and my car's radio/disc player is not an iAnything.
Again, without being able to experience any part of this book, who can say?
Sellers should be clear about what devices are required when when describing their products. Ad copy that states, "Listen on your favorite mp3 player, phone, or download our app" is misleading. I can't listen to this book on my AT&T smart phone; I can't play it on my SONY MP3 player, and I can't play it on my Dell/Linux PC. Live and learn.
