Have always worked for small companies where I never had the benefit of the kind mentoring or meetings where this kind of knowledge is passed down. While I have struggled with his concepts of frankness and performance based evaluations I found the book very useful.
I have quoted this book extensively over the last several months and it has definitely helped.
I always struggle with some of these business bio books as to whether they are just “I am so great” exercises, but it’s not like he was running a dairy queen.
They need to be much clearer that this is the first book in a series that is not even going to try and make it so it stands alone.
I personally think this is sloppy… you have to resolve “something” to make it satisfying.
I thought the author did a great job of laying out the time line.
There is so much detail, especially on the names and locations of the units involved what I wished a better knowldge of French geography. I did enjoy when he broke off to tell the history of a countries involvement or the political situation that lead them to this point. I found the description of how Paris was eventually taken very interesting. Over all I think it was worth the time and certainly gave me a much firmer understanding of the landings.
