  • Lean Thinking: Banish Waste and Create Wealth in Your Corporation, Revised and Updated

    • ABRIDGED (4 hrs and 46 mins)

    Womack and Jones, the authors of The Machine That Changed the World and creators of the "lean enterprise" theory, take leanness to the next step with a focus on what the customer really wants, not what it is possible to get him to accept. This is the management book for the next business generation.

    Alastair says: "Aaaargh, get the book instead"
    "Good info, BORING listen"
    Overall

    Womacks voice is possibly the worst narration I have come across. The information is exceptional, but is almost impossible to assimilate because of his voice. If ever there was an argument for authors hiring professional readers, it is this book.

    Story

    Listen as Frank tells in his own inimitable voice his story of how at the age of 19 he traveled from Limerick to New York in pursuit of the American dream. Despite the abundance of unsolicited advice he gets to "join the cops" and "stick to his own kind", Frank knows that he should educate himself and somehow rise above his circumstances.

    Stanley says: "A second delightful helping"
    "Kept hoping he would wise up"
    Overall

    Well written, often humorous story of Frank McCourt's life. You want so bad for him to succeed, but in the end he's just another drunk who abandons his wife and child for love of the bottle. So much potential, and yet so wasted a life. The flashes of brilliance are there, only to be drowned in the ditch with "a few pints". Tis pity he never allows himself to rise above his raising, since getting a college degree and other betterments were sacrificed to his belly and the god of drink. I really was hoping that he would make something of himself.
