They're not kidding when they call this the "abridged version of The Intelligent Investor! How do you take a 700 page book and boil it down to under 3 hours and maintain much of the content? This is good if you want the general idea of what Graham is talking about, but if you're looking for nuts and bolts... I'd look elsewhere.
I'm a BIG Collins fan, and upon reading other reviewers criticisms about this not being as well-rounded of a book, thought they were just being picky, but... it's true. He fails to back up several of his deductions with the same rigor as Good to Great, and the general quality of these deductions isn't as significant in the first place. I'd say he had more than enough content for a chapter in a book, but not nearly enough for a whole book. This could have been a section of his next book. But, it's short...
I have listened to this book literally 12 or 13 times and reviewed sections of it more than that! This is the definitive work on the systemization of innovation! I'm being literal when I say that this has to be the MOST significant book on the topic ever written! I'd put it on my shelf next to Good To Great!
5 stars all the way!!!
