I liked the message but it felt a bit short. I honestly expected more. I would say there is about 40 minutes of solid content here.
Its a good listen but it wont be on top of my list of books I would recommend. I am inspired and encouraged by the message since it reminded me of what I need to do.
Now that in itself is worth the price of admission but its not on the top of my list.
Energetic, Purposeful, preachy
It felt like a good meal that needed a desert. It would leave you a bit hungry. I think this material should be bundled with something else.
I would most definitely listen to Outliers again. The case studies presented are intriguing. The book is well researched and presented and it never gets boring. There is no padding or unnecessary presentation of facts. The author who is also the presenter (which in itself is pretty impressive) does not beat around the bush but gets straight into it.
I really enjoyed this title. It has such broad appeal that people from various disciplines would find merit in what the author has to say. Its mandatory reading/listening whether you are in HR, The Military, Info Tech, Sales or whatever your walk of life is. You should just pick up this book. For me its an instant classic and I am going to see what else Mr. Gladwell has to offer.
I did not read the printed version but the audiobook was not bad at all.
The book itself is well paced. The author keeps you interested by giving you snapshots of things to come.
He did the best with what he had.
No. It got a bit tedious at times and every now and then I did get the impression the author was padding to make up a required word count. All that said it was worth the listen.
I had hoped he would examine certain aspects of body language in more detail but this was not the case. I would say this book is an excellent introduction or guide to those not at all familiar (as I was) to the subject. This is a worthy buy.
