    An iconic teacher. A warm friend. A generous mentor. For more than 40 years, Howard Stevenson has been a towering figure at Harvard Business School: the man who literally defined entrepreneurship and taught thousands of the world’s most successful professionals. Now - spurred by Stevenson’s heart-stopping brush with death - his student, colleague, and dear friend Eric Sinoway shares the man’s wisdom and inspiration.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    narration was too distracting. instead of allowing the writing to express ideas, the narrator's over the top attempt at impersonating made the listening experience awful.


    What was most disappointing about Eric Sinoway’s story?

    the tips or lessons were generic and too forever to get more specific.


    Any additional comments?

    keep narration of non fiction books simple so that content can be optimally expressed.

  • Why I Left Goldman Sachs: A Wall Street Story

    On March 14, 2012, more than three million people read Greg Smith's bombshell op-ed in the New York Times titled Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs. The column immediately went viral, became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, and drew passionate responses from former Fed chairman Paul Volcker, legendary General Electric CEO Jack Welch, and New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg. Mostly, though, it hit a nerve among the general public who question the role of Wall Street in society - and the callous "take-the-money-and-run" mentality that brought the world economy to its knees a few short years ago.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Why I Left Goldman Sachs to be better than the print version?

    Yes because you can hear more feeling in authors words.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very few people who have climb the corporate ladders of financial services industry have had the guts to expose these companies on their business practices. This was one of the gutsiest.


    Have you listened to any of Greg Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I would be interested in seeing more of his work.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When Pigs Fly.
