    Story
    "Lacks any real detail or analysis"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    First, this book isn't really a 54 minutes as the narration is very slow. That being said even at 1.5x, or 2x, your time is probably better spent elsewhere as the book is very light on details.

    The 5 companies "discussed" get 6-8 (slowly narrated) minutes each. The companies are:
    Lululemon
    Alibaba
    Keurig
    Tesla
    Fuhu

    These are fascinating companies that are definitely growth engines, but I feel rather than getting a case study or any analysis, all this book does is give you a very short intro to who these companies are.


    Any additional comments?

    I've given 2 stars, because if you ignore the speed, the narration is good, and if you ignore the lack of detail the intro to these companies isn't bad.
