My wife got this book and I knew I wasn't going to read it so I got it in audio to know what she was going to talk about. I didn't like it at all: my feeling is that this could have been a good magazine article, no longer than a few pages. She started reading it and dropped it after a few pages.
My general impression is that there wasn't enough substance, that you could get the same level of information/knowledge in an informal talk with any mom. The subject of youth entitlement is attractive for me as a parent, but I'd look for more info elsewhere.
Sorry to be hard with this review, I respect the time/effort that involves the creation of a book, but I'm totally disappointed in this audio.
My 5-6 year-old son loves the narration. We have the book, but as English is not my first language, I wanted a good narration. And this is a very good one, very entertaining, with nice sound effects.
The book is pretty short. What I've done several times is I open the book, put the audio, and move through the pages while it's being narrated.
Yes. It's entertaining, and provides a good insight in the way Google people thinks.
I'm an IT guy, not particularly a lover for Google (or Microsoft or Apple) but it's a very interesting book.
Yes. This started me in audio books. The book was overwhelming and the audio was pretty easy to follow.
Very interesting for me, being an IT guy.
Daughter's absolute favorite!
My 10 year-old daughter loves this book, so I got it in audio, and she loves it. I have heard some parts of it with her, and it's good. I'd recommend it for parents who have daughters around that age that love books.
I think this is a book backed with content, with experiences and insight.
The simplicity they use to define the problems with execution.
I think it's a good book on the subject of Execution, implementing strategies that require people to change the way they do things.
The content was good and I think overall it gives you tools to be a better parent. In my case, I'm a father, I don't have that big of a problem with any of my kids but the themes discussed here are very applicable.
I've already had a chance to apply these things in real life, and they work! I feel so happy to handle a situation very different of the ways I'd have used in the past, and obtained the desired results: kids do better, I feel much better, and we all communicate better at the end.
I've read reviews where they criticize the narrator and for me it has never been an issue... but for this particular book I felt some tension and I felt that the voice didn't help. I can say that I was tired while reading the book, I think the narrator has a good voice, but it's just that the book was slower and it felt monotonous, repetitive ... I've been on the other side, also tired and hearing a super cheerful voice but didn't like it either. I'd have preferred a different voice, less deep.
I almost stopped hearing the audiobook, but I'm glad I finished it. It does have good applicable content. In my case it was a hard listen, but in the end I'd totally recommend if you have a strong-willed child.
