    The Google Story is the definitive account of the populist media company powered by the world's most advanced technology that in a few short years has revolutionized access to information about everything for everybody everywhere.

    Roger Smith says: "Very Good"
    "One Sided....."
    Overall

    Book has plenty of facts but falls short as a biography.... seems the Google guys never took a wrong turn and all of the oddball things they tried out made them superhuman... "Never since Guttenberg..." Please... The Narrator doesn't help either.

    Long considered the world's greatest thinker and writer on management, Peter Drucker's teachings continue to inspire leaders everywhere. From 1975 to 1979, author William Cohen studied under the Great Man and became the first graduate of his doctoral program. What Drucker taught him literally changed his life. In a matter of a few years, he was re-commissioned in the Air Force and rose to the rank of major general.

    Daniel says: "Not fun to listen to"
    "Dissapointing"
    Overall

    This author clearly used the Drucker name to attract attention. However, he does a poor job at adding any previously unknown Drucker wisdom, and instead uses this as a platform to bring his own additions as a "Drucker Disciple." This is not what is promised in the title. Personal anecdotes on Drucker classes and relationships can be intersting.. but in this case, the add no color to the interest in Druckers limited personal history. The Author also tries to connect ideas with modern examples, almost none of which have a clear connection to Drucker... and they often have only a casual inference to the idea and ramble on to boot.
    In addition, the audio performance is miserable, as the author stumbles through his own material. There are other books on Drucker that far surpass this in content and focus.
