    What did you like best about The Six Sigma Way? What did you like least?

    I think the biggest gripe I have about this book is the narrator's monotone voice ...i found myself frequently falling asleep...!!! other than that the contents are again a bit theoretical and due to my "sleeping" breaks i have to listen to this again to fully comprehend what the authors are trying to convey...!!!


    Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

    Maybe...too theoretical..


    What aspect of John Lescault’s performance would you have changed?

    bring more energy and subtle up/down intonations into the voice...


    Did The Six Sigma Way inspire you to do anything?

    nope...not yet...

  • Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action

    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Story

    Simon has great passion for this topic and is very articulate in putting forward his thoughts and arguments. At times he does tend to repeat himself and say things over and over again...but that is kind of re-inforcing the theme. Also wish he had used more examples from real life and not just the famous electronic company making "stuff starting with a small "i"" that we no longer can live without...!!!!! But all is all I coudl not stop listening from start to finish....!!! I heard this three times end to end and still learn something new each time I hear it....!!!
