This is a great motivational listen about how a man overcame a personal handicap and used the power of other people to build the Kinko's empire. There is a lot of common sense wisdom on building a business, investing money and dealing with people that young and old will find valuable. I thought the book was well read and held my interest throughout.
I could not wait for 36 hours to rebut the 1 star review, so after 1 hour of listening I give this book the highest marks for content and production. Finally someone who understands both Government and finance lays out in understandable and chronological order how crony capitalism, an unchecked FED and bigger and bigger government is destroying free market capitalism and prosperity in this country.
Fantastic audio book! I listened on a long road trip and the time flew by! Adam Carolla has great insight and he read the book like you were having a few beers with an intelligent, funny friend. Highly recommend.
Anyone interested in what the social network phenomenon is all about should listen to this book. David Kirkpatrick does a great job of not only navigating the history of Facebook but also explaining the whole concept of social networking and the reasons for its worldwide acceptance.
While I admire Kirkpatrick's writing his audio production can be quite annoying at times. His microphone is obviously very close to his mouth and the listener must endure frequent inhaling of breath and the sounds of saliva gathering in his mouth. A better audio production would have made this a 5 star effort.
