I didn't finish the book because I couldn't stand the lip smacking and the stuttering of the author- can't he please hire someone who actually reads well? I'm sure the book has good content but it's not worth it to me to suffer through it.
I recommend this book for it's content but it can be very challenging listening to the author struggle to read it. Very dry and lifeless.
After 4 hours of listening, I had to give up on the audio version of this book as I could no longer stand the author's narration. He seems surprised by his own sentance structure, mumbles words, stumbles often, and seems to lose interest while reading his own material. I borrowed the print version from my local library, which made it easier to skim and focus on relevant sections.
This author clearly used the Drucker name to attract attention. However, he does a poor job at adding any previously unknown Drucker wisdom, and instead uses this as a platform to bring his own additions as a "Drucker Disciple." This is not what is promised in the title. Personal anecdotes on Drucker classes and relationships can be intersting.. but in this case, the add no color to the interest in Druckers limited personal history. The Author also tries to connect ideas with modern examples, almost none of which have a clear connection to Drucker... and they often have only a casual inference to the idea and ramble on to boot.
In addition, the audio performance is miserable, as the author stumbles through his own material. There are other books on Drucker that far surpass this in content and focus.
The author is a poor narrator. The first 40 minutes were more about the author than Drucker.
Have Morgan Freeman read the book. :-)
will likely stop listening and just buy the real book.
It was so inspiring to hear Drucker's ideas and insights as well as so many personal anecdotes about this marketing genius.
