    Everywhere, products are being commoditized, services are being imitated, and traditional barriers to market entry are collapsing. To sustain competitive advantage in today's Copycat Economy, companies must break from the pack. This book will show you how.

    Overall

    The Book is broken into 3 sections, the first two sections are exceptional. The Author establishes the case for breaking from the pack by showing you how commoditized industries are getting and how key players are differentiating themselves in various ways. This Audio book is a nice compliment to “The World is flat”, since several of the issues covered in detail in the world is flat are touched upon in this book.

    My only complaint is section 3 which was good, but short. I wished it had a lot more examples. The other 2 sections spend a lot of time referring to section 3 with solutions to the challenges posed earlier. In Fairness he does cover solutions throughout the book with real business examples, but I just thought there would be more in section 3.

    Roger Ramius Sergei Chiang MacClintock was young, handsome, athletic, an excellent dresser, and third in line for the Throne of Man. So it wasn't surprising that he became spoiled, self-centered, and petulant. After all, what else did he have to do with his life?

    "Poor Production Quaity"
    Overall

    I really liked the narrator, and will buy other stuff narrated by them. The Story is very good (except I didn't care for the ending -- it was too short). My big gripe is production quality. There are varying audio levels all throughout the book. Like they just didn't try to match audio (annoying but not the end of the world), but the biggest thing for me is that when the narrator stopped and started again, he would re-read the last sentence - so the audio engineer could splice the pieces together. Unfortunately, they did no splicing, so there is this annoying repeat of the last sentence when the narrator starts a new segment. This Coupled wt the audio issues, are a key reason I gave it 2 stars. This is one of the poorest books audio wise that I have bought. I listen to this on an mp3 player (quality level 4) with headphones, so the quality issues are very apparent.
