    I was lead to get this book from the Hardvard bussiness Review podcast. However, I did not find anything else in the audiobook, besides the points already raised in the podcast. The tip about quantitatively defining goals was, for me, the most useful bit of wisdom derived from the book, and this can be stated in a few lines.

    This audiobook was created based on Michael Porter's landmark book Competitive Strategy. This was Mr. Porter's synopsis of his book for the Harvard Business Review.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Competitive Strategy to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely not. I have read the original article by Porter at the HBR magazine. I wanted to have the text in audio to listen to it again and reinforce concepts while driving. However, the reading is rather poor, the voice of the reader is monotonous, there is no sound editing, the noise of the cracking chair of the reader in the background distracts and, overall, the audio quality is not satisfying.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The contents. Michael Porter's ideas are very useful and powerful


    What didn’t you like about Deaver Brown’s performance?

    The reading is disapassionate and rather poor, the voice of the reader is monotonous, there is no sound editing (e.g. a sound indicating a change of section), the noise of the cracking chair of the reader in the background speaks of sloppiness in the recording process and, overall, the audio quality is not satisfying as the driving normal sounds require high quality of the recording.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. The monotonous reading was a deterrant of this. Only the qaulity of the contents prevented me from not finishing the audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    Michael Porter's work deserves much better audiobook quality!.
