While I enjoyed many of the historical insights, the exchanges and minute details got in the way and slowed down the story. The opening is colorfully painted with cursing which might turn off some readers. I ultimately decided not to finish it about 1/3 of the way.
I kind of disagree with many of the investment ideals from this series-of-short-advices book, but I did glean some new and confirmed some already known truths about investing. Only sorta worth the listen.
This is the perfect reason to listen to unabridged audiobooks. I've been following Gary for the better part of 3 years and to have him read his own book and add the comments, side notes, enthusiasm makes this way more valuable than print.
The information/strategy presented is interesting and I'll be backing it up with further research. Three-stars because the book authors (also the reader) seemed to just be filling time. I put the iPod on double speed to slog through the fluff to get to the meat.
An excellent insight into how to be differently creative and think outside the normal bounds of product development and enhancement. There's a reason IDEO is the best in their field.
I'm not entirely sure how I came across this book, but it's been life changing. Expertly presented and quite humorous. It should be on your Wish List if not in My Library.
If you need to do any sort of negotiation either in personal or professional life, this is a must read. The author writes a clear formula for helping readers get the best possible outcome. It seems a little dry 20-20 hindsight, but expertly organized and presented.
