Radicals and Visionaries sounds exiting but unfortunately this is just 8 to 10 minute profiles of important businesspeople. The profiles is only scraching the surface and the book quickly becomes boring to listen to. I listened to the first 2 or 3 profiles and then deleted the book from my Ipod. Hear the sample before you buy.
There is nothing in this title worth spending any money on. Motivational stories like these can be found in everyday publications like Reader's Digest. The narrator drones on and all you really hear is blah blah blah blah blah. "And that's the story behind blah blah blah". This title was not only a waste of money/credits... but a waste of time. Unless of course you didn't know that Mary Kay Cosmetics was run by a very determined and self motivated woman. If that is the sort of material that you find "enlightening" then go for it. Otherwise...go take a nap and save your credit.
I was intrigued by the title, but the content is nothing new. We already know how most of the 20th century entrepreneurs got started. I was hoping for more detail not cursory information that has been adequately covered in print and in press. The readers are a bit boring, too. I did give it two stars because some of our younger readers might learn something.
I have just started to listen to this and I must say that the readers manner was so teadious and dated that I had to turn it off after 5 minutes. I real waste of money as they just cover a very short bio on each person not really as described.
Great book detailing the key parts of entrepreneurs lives. It is a very simple read and extremely enjoyable to read.
