Same title as my review for the last book. There are not many books I would want to listen to the abridged version, but this is one of them. The story is great and the narration is good. The story line starts with Richard losing something important to him. He gives up everything to get it back. He is faced with an haunting danger while early characters are brought back into the story. The ending gets you ready to listen to the next book.
First of all, the summary for the book is way off. There is no long drawn out cat and mouse change between Jensen and Richard. Other than that, this is typical of Goodkind's latest books in the series. There is a long drawn out middle that is sometimes boring to sit through, but the ending ties it together and makes it worth it. I'll move on to the next book.
The story line good and there is some strong character building. However, there is strong language and rape scenes that are very explicit that detracted from the story for me.
The world is changing and those who recognize it will prosper. This book goes into how knowing your core business very well and opening the rest up to the world can help you succeed in today's environment. The author takes a hard look at what Google has done to traditional businesses such as the newspaper industry. However, Jarvis does not stop there. He takes the next step to propose fixes to several industries. While many of his fixes are not feasible, they are all doable. And much to the disappointment of the current industry leaders, someone is going to catch on and take the lead.
I would also recommend his blog as a nice refresher of the books content to keep you thinking.
