Overall as with all of Lencioni's fables the story is good. It isn't my favorite, but it is good and there is plenty to take away. The narrator was good for the first half of the book, but then the audio appeared to shift significantly at the beginning of a new section. It was enough of a shift that I thought it was a completely new narrator altogether. Additionally the narration is at times a bit too animated for my taste.
In summary, the story is good, but certainly should not be your first Lencioni book and the narration is adequate.
If you remember the days when you couldn't save your game....if you have fond childhood memories of the sounds of an old arcade game...if you are a child of the 80's...you will love this book.
The author plays great attention to detail in a brilliant story with all of the elements of fantasy, adventure, sci-fi, and love story by sprinkling in the perfect amount of familiar nostalgic references.
I can think of no one better to narrate than Wil Wheaton who does a spectacular job with just the right amount of enthusiasm and the perfect voice to represent the narrator's character.
It is a true adventure in every sense as the plot succeeds in keeping you engaged in the story through the various twists and unpredictable turns. The pace starts out moderately slow setting the stage and consistently increases to an epic climax.
This may be my new favorite book of all time.
I'm not sure who narrated this book but it sounds nothing like Richrard Branson. The voice is low, grumbling, and intolerable. Having heard Richard speak in person on numerous occasions I find his voice pleasant to hear. This voice is unbearable and as a result I could not stand more than 4 minutes of the book before finding something else to consume my time.
A truly phenomenal look into one of the most visionary people of our time. This book has the feel of being truly unguided and no holds barred. The good, the bad, and the ugly of the man are revealed leaving the audience the raw product that was Steve Jobs.
