    The audio that shows how to get the job done and deliver results...whether you're running an entire company or in your first management job. Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan, who Jack Welch calls "a great practitioner and an insightful theorist," collaborate on a "compelling business story of 'how to get it done.'"

    Overall

    This book has some good stuff in it interrupted by long sections full of generalities. The book is best when it examines concrete examples, like the one about Dell in the sample. I bought the book based on the sample, so I was disappointed that it frequently drifts into generalities. The sections read by Larry Bossidy are generally very engaging, those read by the narrator are mostly boring, and the sections read by Ram Charan are almost incomprehensible because of Mr. Charan's tedious accent.

    Consciousness, teaches Fred Kofman, is the capacity to observe, choose, and act in accord with your values. And "conscious business" means using that ability at every level of your work: in being aware of the needs of others and expressing your own needs; in seeing the hidden emotional obstacles that may be holding your team back; in making good decisions under pressure; and even in delving into such spiritual questions as "Who am I?" and "What is my real purpose here?"

    "Highly Recommended"
    Overall

    This is the best book I've heard yet from audible.com. Fred Kofman is an entertaining and educational speaker who doesn't seem to be reading. He uses memorable, often funny examples to illustrate his ideas. I have heard or read variations on some of his concepts in other books, but every idea is good and true. Fred Kofman is incredibly smart and also has a lot of common sense and humility.
