Professional narration would have been a big plus. Feels more like chatty lecture than audiobook.
In my top 10 business titles. An interesting timely story.
Similar to many other bios. A scan of the journey... then a selection of defining moments... then add some snippets / characters and you get an interesting view of Yahoos growing pains as framed by some interesting events.
Easy to listen to voice. Not much dramatization, though none is really needed.
Not quite... an enjoyable summary of different phases in the life of Yahoo and MM. A few good places to pause and pick up later. A good companion during windshield time.
Enjoyed the ride. Whether you're a Yahoo / MM fan or critic, I'd suggest the book does a fair job of capturing the raw ambition that pervades the modern tech landscape. Some great inside information that helps you get a feel for how Yahoo is growing (or not)... by trial and error. Big money... Big egos... Big bets.
Revealing and insightful
As a non-fiction work, characters are not the focus of the book, but Ms.Cain did a deft job of weaving together pieces of research with everyday observations.
Her performance as smooth... with a voice well matched the the subject matter.
There's a distinct difference between being quiet and shy.
Yes I'd recommend for another point of view. Ms. Chua's approach is perhaps not for everyone, but the book offers some unique reflections on how to train your children.
More yet to be written. Ripe for a follow up that can reflect on the results of parenting "the Chinese way".
Calm, deliberate, cool
An interesting listen. Fine narration. Story unfolds slowly. Patience is required to enjoy. Clever use of history and backstory.
