This was like being read beadtime stories from a Newsweek magazine. In my opinion these are hardly the best business stories of the year and of little value as an audible option.
Not sure who the audience for this book is supposed to be, but with sage wisdom like "just because you like Japanese food does not mean you should open a sushi restaurant", I'm not any more enlightened than when I started the book.
Have to agree with Lynn's review. I listened to the entire book and there is nothing new here. In fact, some of it is a bit insulting, like build relationships with your customer... "we tell jokes to our customers"...how trite!
His points are so basic they are insulting. For example "you can change your attitude", "think with an open mind" an oh yeah, "be honest". There isn't anything very insightful here.
This Walmart truck swerves all over the road! More than you ever wanted to know in unrelenting detail about Snapper lawnmowers and salmon farming in Chile. This book is bloated an noth worth your time.
I listened to this and walked away with nothing. He uses over examples like American gas stations and MacDonalds to draw economic and political conclusions which I find oversimplified and far fetched.
Not only is the sound quality horrible, but he spends most of the time making silly jokes and using over simplified examples
Interesting concept, but unless you have a good understanding of geometry it will be tough to grasp this story. It seemed to me to be "Pointless" (pun intended)
Not much new here, in fact it is a rehash of better read books like FutureShock and books written by Tom Peters'. The narration itself puts one in combat with the desire to nod off and the interspersed dialog from Bill himself adds little. Don't waste your time.
