Richard Rumelt pulls no punches as he exposes case after case of poor (read no) strategy in both companies we do and don't know. He then highlights some stand out strategy cases but without confining himself to just the old Apple and Walmart scenarios. A must read for anyone after more than just motivation.
It untangles some seemingly very complicated strategies into building blocks. No claim here that it is easy, but definitely doable.
I found the narration quite easy to listen to. He sounded like he was the author.
Do yourself a favour. Get it.
This is an easy listen while on the road etc. Written in a fictional story format, it can even be listened to half asleep and still hit the target.
"The Five Dysfunctions of a Team" reminds me a lot of "Winning" by Jack Welch. While completely different writing styles, so many of the lessons are the same.
It was painful! As a member of a committee running an industry association, the number of times it felt like my own situation was being described exactly was unnerving! It was a fantastic step forward for me in dealing with and helping our group make progress.
A great listen for anyone working within a decision making group. Church, sporting club or business board alike should take something away from this audio book.
The content is good, but not suited to audio. I found myself wanting to highlight, underline, re-do, check and compare the equations he was describing, but they got away from me too fast. Certainly no good while driving.
I'm looking for "Good to Great" or Michael Porters "Five Forces". Hoping the latter isn't like this one and needs to be paper based. Best I read the other reviews!
The narration was fine, certainly not annoying.
Buy the paper book!
Written and narrated like he is talking to a friend, Tony Hsieh engages from the moment he starts. Honest, humble and humorous, it highlights a number of valuable lessons learnt by Tony from childhood till now, that would be valuable to anyone, but especially aspiring entrepreneurs.
You will really get to feel like you know Tony Hsieh through the audio. It makes the story and its lessons 'sticky'.
This book would make a great gift too, as I suspect its appeal would be quite wide.
Remove the Bible bashing! It just got unbearable. I love Zig and I am born and bred a Catholic, but this just went way too far.
I will be reading more reviews before purchasing my next Zig Ziglar book. I don't want to be disappointed twice.
Entertaining, engaging and Southern
Zigs stories are always entertaining.
Get Ziglars "How to stay motivated" book instead. That one is recorded live so includes a lot of humour and while he does reference the Bible, it does not feel preachy or over done.
