Marc Cashman is grueling to suffer through as a reader. If he isn't enthused or fascinated by what he's saying, how are we supposed to be as listeners? The guy has no intonation. And on top of that, he takes strange pauses in the middle of thoughts.
AG Lafley clearly didn't put much effort into writing this, which is a huge disappointment considering he has a lot of great stories to share that could be useful. Ram Charan just continuously makes a series of general statements that are just too general to be useful. Together they make a couple of weak storytellers.
Interesting to learn how Warren Buffet earned his fortune.
Not at all.
Much more thoroughly researched biographies about Houdini, Einstein, Steve Jobs, and Eisner put this author to shame. Inserting her (incorrect) opinions on the economy was a distraction that I could have forgiven with better storytelling. There are plenty of business wars involving Buffet that were rushed through.
I liked the candor of Louis.
Louis gives specific details about some events, but for a lot of the time part glosses over the details and gives grand general statements. More specific retelling of events would be much more useful to the reader. He has a great story to tell, but unfortunately he is a weak storyteller.
