    World renowned business sage Gary Hamel argues that organizations need bold management innovation now more than ever. With incisive analysis and vivid illustrations, he explains how to turn your company into a serial management innovator.

    Kevin says: "Narration Ruins Excellent Book"
    "Not my bag"
    Overall

    I had high hopes for this book, but it reads like the author had a thesaurus by his side and the narrator would have been more bearable had he used his best "Charles Emerson Winchester III" impression. At least that would have made it more entertaining. Seriously dry and overladen with fast-talking multiple adjectives and overused rhetorical buzzwords, management has never been this dull.

    Story

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"; "It is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known"; so the novel begins and ends with some of Dicken's best-known words, and between the two is every Briton's view of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.

    K. Hicks says: "A Rediscovery of an Old Friend"
    "Very well read"
    Overall

    Martin Jarvis does an excellent job narrating this title. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    You can go after the job you want...and get it! You can take the job you have...and improve it! You can take any situation you're in...and make it work for you!

    Ralph says: "This is well worth listening too! Main points are."
    "Dated and Dull"
    Overall

    Go find Sherman and set the WABAC Machine to 1930 if you buy this book. While I applaud some of the principles in this book (pay attention to what other people want and help them get it), the nostalgic quality was reminiscent of a 1950's black and white movie meant to teach you proper etiquette. I would have preferred if Mr. Peabody had narrated it, but unfortunately the only dog in this story... was the book!
