    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone driving innovation, new product or a new business model. The processes and concepts described make sense to anyone who has been through the lifecycle of businesses and in my case having been a consultant in the application of best practices such as lean.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lean Startup?

    Description of some of Eric's failures add a lot of


    Any additional comments?

    The challenge I now have is I want a printed copy or fieldguide so I can work through some of the ideas on a business plan I'm working on. Amazon should give a discount for buying the book on a second platform after having purchased in the audio format.

    Peter Senge's groundbreaking ideas on building organizations have made him a household name among corporate managers. His theories help businesses to clarify their goals, to defy the odds, to more clearly understand threats, and to recognize new opportunities. He introduces managers to a new source of competitive advantage, and offers a marvelously empowering approach to work.

  • Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action

    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Start with Why to be better than the print version?

    It has the advantage of being read by the author and his passion for the topic and the personal anecdotes ring true. Only issue is that the diagrams would be handy. Why not upsell me a printed copy for a couple of bucks?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Start with Why?

    Golden Triangle


    Have you listened to any of Simon Sinek’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Have not read others.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It gave me an "aha" moment - very important right now as I start up a new business.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, upsell me a printed/kindle version that I can use as a field text.

    In an audiobook that challenges everything you thought you knew, W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne assert that tomorrow's leading companies will succeed, not by battling their rivals for market share in the bloody "red ocean" of a shrinking profit pool, but by creating "blue oceans" of untapped new market spaces ripe for growth.

    Any additional comments?

    The tools and techniques discussed in the book are not accessible via audio. I would like an opportunity to purchase the eBook as a follow on. Please look at building this in to your business model. It can't be that hard to cross platform...
