I have read (or listened to) many business books and it is rare to find a book that doesn't feel like it is just a spin on another book. This book is no exception. Good book and overall above average, but before you start, you know Ramsey is successful, so you know his stories are going to end with him where he is today (vs. I started out recording in a small room... now he owns the entire building).
If you are looking to move mountains, this isn't your book. If you are looking to sharpen your skills, this won't hurt!
The Heath's books are great and they take every day business practices and spin them with a different lens. Unfortunately, Charles Kahlenberg is so unusually dry, I found myself drifting off and losing track. I have read this book and was listening to it as a refresher, but it took over a month to get through because I could not stand doing it in one try.
I wish they would rerecord with a new narrator (yeah, that bad)!
The author voice was so mono toned and dry, it was unbearable to listen. In addition, the entire audio book could have been delivered in a 10 minute wrap up. I always listen through to the end in hopes I'll be surprised... this was a waste of time!
Some of it was dry and Deepak's voice is not the best for narration, but he pointed out some great ideas
When this was written, I am sure it stood out above all other. With all of the leadership & management books out today, I would say it is pretty on par... but pretty amazing considering when it was written
Yes, Christensen is great. How Will You Measure Your Life was much better
Great single idea, but I feel it could have been a long magazine article
The difficulty of any audible book is the narrator. The narrator of this book was dry, mono toned and easily lost. I would appreciate to hear this book with someone else
