Clay Christensen is a wise and thoughtful man. And this application of business principles to career and life is an interesting and provocative idea. In essence, Professor Christensen argues that we should live a life of purpose, plan our careers as we would a business strategy, and then be ready to adapt to the unexpected.
In some cases, I found myself distracted by some of the differences between a business strategy and a life strategy. Yet, I think part of the value added here is putting life and career planning into terms that senior executives find comfortable and familiar.
The reading is nice, though I sometimes found my mind wandering. Not sure if that's me, the reading, or the content. But it was a great use of time, with advice I intend to follow (but, like most people, probably won't!).
Daniel Kahneman's work is truly provocative and thoughtful. And this book makes his work exceptionally accessible.
Even though I read a lot of business-related books (and even wrote one), I don't often enjoy them as much as I did this one.
While the reading is quite good, as business books go, I did wish for a little more modulation and enthusiasm in the reader's voice. Good, not awesome. Since the content is so good, it wasn't an issue at all. I'm just a fan of improving the quality and interest of the reading in these sorts of books.
Really enjoyed this performance of the classic Jane Eyre. The reader chose subtle voice variations to represent different characters. Since there are a limited number of characters, anyway, this was a great choice. Clear, sharp and well read.
I enjoyed it so much that I listened to the whole thing in just a couple of days. I'd do it again, sometime, too. The story is such a classic of English literature, and this reading enhances it.
Great book, exceptionally well read by the narrator. I especially liked the clarity of voice when changing characters. In spite of few written clues, the narrator's changing voice always made clear who was speaking dialogue.
Unfortunately, a distracting echo or some other audio effect was present throughout the audiobook. Not bad enough to ruin the book, but noticeable enough to distract the listener.
