I believe in empathy and its role in building organizations. Actually, empathy is the real driver for the success of families, organizations and countries for that sake!
The book is surely entertaining, but the narrator makes it boring! I tend to drift away because of the low tone consistent voice.
I can surely relate to the content and do advise especially hard working managers that sometimes don't seem to understand where is the problem to read it. this is the missing link
The book's idea is great. The stories are too short to understand or enjoy.
I would give it the plus for opening the door to more investigations regarding theses CEOs
This book is a different perspective on how to run your business for those that are nuzzled where to start from. The book speaks all the facts in a simple and straight manner
I suggest this book to anyone taking on a turnaround job or starting a career at a new business
The book didn't meet my expectations. Not because of the story but the the write up could have been better
Recently I have been learning about the meaning of GRIT. I think this novel embodies that word, yet not in the aggressive and forceful nature of GRIT as we would imagine it, rather by the quite persistent perseverance of that pianist.
This novel is by far the most memorable I have ever read. Ayn Rand is surely a different author by all means and this novel is not for the close minded. Despite its excessive length, I enjoyed every day the turn of events and the interaction between the characters to the extent that it caused real mood swings for me!
After reading the fountainhead, I don't think I'm the same person at least in the way I view people around me. Try it but be guarded with the length; you need to assign a lot of time for this listening.
This is surely one of the memorable books I have read. The analysis goes into different levels and tracks real lessons from these misfortunes. Although I would argue that some of the assumptions for losses were too simplified, I find it interesting and logical reasons that surely assist in the fall of these companies.
A great read for the business minded and not to miss.
I'm in operations all my life and have been involved in many sectors and my turnarounds. The rationale in this book is truly level 5 in every angle and corner. This book is more than explaining How to go from Good To Great. It is a message to each of us that you need to do everything with precision, dedication and thoughtfulness, even the parts that don't show up!
I loved this book all the way. When I read its reviews, when I started listening and when I finished it. As an operations professional, I cannot stress the amount of knowledge it added to me. The numerous examples provided are more than adequate to explain the theory behind.
For me personally, my take on it would be the focus on retail business which is not my line. It would have been great if it tackled a number of disciplines, yet this is the focus of the book and it is meant to be like this.
Best note I have: this book is brought in a forward, clear and simple method to the listener. It really provides a clear perspective into our minds. One thing I have to warn the reader and make very clear. Prof. Novella might put forward thoughts related to conspiracy theories such as 9/11 or human evolution as obvious fallacies which by its own merit contradicts his findings in the lectures. His arguments of 9/11 for example are BIASED towards his views that it wasn't staged so the whole argument is geared in that direction neglecting the full spectrum of arguments against. (Please note that I'm not with that argument as I don't have the full knowledge about the subject) It is an irony that he is acting against his own preachings.
Finally, what makes this rather dangerous that fact that it is brought to us in a "scientific" and "logical" way so any argument against would be futile and stupid!!
The book is a must for people in sales, customer service and surely law enforcement. I believe the findings in the book need refinement as the assumptions are not based on real science rather than observations.
