    In 2010 world-renowned innovation expert Clayton M. Christensen gave a powerful speech to the Harvard Business School's graduating class. Drawing upon his business research, he offered a series of guidelines for finding meaning and happiness in life. He used examples from his own experiences to explain how high achievers can all too often fall into traps that lead to unhappiness. Full of inspiration and wisdom, this book will help students, midcareer professionals, and parents alike forge their own paths to fulfillment.

    Any additional comments?

    Clay Christensen's work culminates in generalization of the principals he first described in his book The Innovator's Solution. This time his focus moves from disruptive business models to the application of the "Job to be done" theory on a personal level. Narration is illustrated with some of the same business case studies used in his previous books, but is tied back to the personal level by stories and experiences from Clay's own life.

    I have always admired the motto: "There's nothing more practical then a good theory." This book certainly delivers an excellent lens to look at your life and gives you good grip to steer it where you want to. Highly recommended!

    The Overlords appeared suddenly over every city - intellectually, technologically, and militarily superior to humankind. Benevolent, they made few demands: unify earth, eliminate poverty, and end war. With little rebellion, humankind agreed, and a golden age began.

    "Childhood's memory"
    Overall

    I have read the Childhood's End as an adolescent and the experience has become but a distant memory. Now I have greatly enjoyed this audiobook refresher half of my lifetime later. It is curious to discover how much of my worldview was shaped by this book.

    I firmly believe that mankind ought to free itself from the drudgery of manual labour - where possible with the help of technology - to pursue the greater achievements of the mind. And lucky as I am, I find myself trapped in the prison of office work, no less mind-numbing and intellectually unfulfilling than the repetitious days of the fieldworker. The yearning to unleash the personal creativity in order to propel the society into the future grows stronger in me as I ponder the Clarke's vision of the human species to come.

    Even though this book does not have particularly strong characters and has very little adventure, I still find it quite stimulating to my philosophical side. The narration is a bit dry, but it suits the tone of the book quite well.
