This was a great story with a complex plot. It is long (53 hours) but went quickly as I listen in my car. The narrator was very good and was able to keep my attention. Although the timing was set a few decades ago, I think the overall concepts are quite relevant today and applicable in any scale (global to local).
Without giving away any of the story, it develops well and builds upon itself dramatically. There are a lot of twists and turns throughout the story that keep you on the edge of your seat.
I did run into a minor snag as this was a very long audiobook. I do not sync frequently with my computer so I download multiple parts. It is very easy to lose your place as the titles on my Ipod Touch do not display enough characters to see what part is what. I had to keep a notecard with the times that each segment took as that was the only way to identify each ~8 hour segment and make sure I listen in the correct order. It would be nice if the narrator stated "Part 1 of 8" at the beginning and end of each segment.
This is an entertaining and inspiring book and is helping motivate me into becoming an avid runner and I am experimenting successfully with the barefoot running philosophy. The performance and storyline are well laid out and keep your attention from start to finish. It is filled with entertaining adventures and interesting personalities. I recommend it for everyone especially if you are looking for some added motivation.
This was very well done in a manner that lets you get a lot of value out of this audiobook. My opinion is that these lessons are applicable to almost any small business.
