I purchased this book under the premise that I would be inspired, that if these three entrepreneurial examples could do it, so could I. Well, the book follows three Harvard Business School Graduates, all who graduated at a similar time and all who started dot com business and of course overcame obstacles and were ultimately successful. I suppose if I graduated from HBS, I would be able to relate. I would have much preferred the book if three entrepreneurs with entirely different educational, social and economical advantages/disadvantages were studied, that way, the likelihood of identifying with at least one character would be higher. I just hoped to walk away with even a glimmer of inspiration, but I did not. I would recommend this book to those who are curious about HBS, how the school is run, its pros & cons and are interested in capturing a portrait of their student alumni.
I would listen to this book every morning on the train into work, I found that it put me in a positive state of mind. I listened to the book twice and found I took away different things both times

I really enjoyed the book. I loved all of Malcom's books, I think he's brilliant. I found Malcom's thesis very compelling and his theories struck a chord with me, solid logic.
There were about two chapters that I drifted off on, but overall, it was very interesting and kept me wanting to listen to more.
I recommend this audiobook
