Professor Ridgley has crafted these 24 lectures as an accessible way to engage with thinking that will help you think-and act-more strategically in business and in your own life, whether you're the CEO of a Fortune 500 company or you're preparing to embark on a new career path.

    What would have made Strategic Thinking Skills better?

    Retitle it "Strategic lessons from history": this is 95 percent historical review and about 5 percent relating history to other things (like football…lots of football metaphors).


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It's nonfiction, so sure.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Mostly disappointment that I hadn't chosen something else.


    Any additional comments?

    This series reminded me of so many self-help business books: they're fine but not really very meaningful or helpful. A collection of stories from battles through history with some rather obvious lessons falls short of what I've come to expect from Great Courses.
