    The new question: Ten years after the worldwide bestseller Good to Great, Jim Collins returns to ask: Why do some companies thrive in uncertainty, even chaos, and others do not? In Great by Choice, Collins and his colleague, Morten T. Hansen, enumerate the principles for building a truly great enterprise in unpredictable, tumultuous, and fast-moving times. The new study: Great by Choice distinguishes itself from Collins’s prior work by its focus on the type of unstable environments faced by leaders today.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I feel like the narrator is preforming for a 3rd grade class, he is simple terrible. The only way to tolerate the book is at 2x speed


    What did you like best about this story?

    Really solid message


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Collins?

    anyone, he is simple the worst

    Do you have the eyes, the ears, and the hands to be a Nanovator? You’re about to find out. In India, entire families—too poor to afford a car—crowd onto a single motor scooter every day to brave the tangled traffic lurching through the streets.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Nanovation?

    I truly wanted to learn about how this revolutionary car came to live, instead, I was forced to listen to the authors preach a few simple point over and over, (and over) again. No meat, just stale bread crumbsIt's a shame, I am a product designer trying to learn more about how great products come about. Instead of being inspired by a great story, I was forced to listen to a terribly under researched, under written, overly half-baked and re-heated (boring) self help business book, by authors that are much more interested in self promotion then doing their job, (which is telling a great story compellingly).I am passing on all the books from these authors.I have been an Audio listener for years, this is my first review


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    NO, this


    What didn’t you like about Dean Gallagher’s performance?

    He was fine, I ended up trying to listen at 2x speed, but still could not stand being told the same thing 5+ times, (just terrible)


    What character would you cut from Nanovation?

    The book is a mix-mash of some story, some preaching, and mixed all together, repeated again and again, Maybe we need to fire the editor's too. The car could be great, I have no idea from the book, it just does not tell you the story.
