    Story
    "Not good. Sorry."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator should speak to the adult audience but instead was enunciating as if reading a fairy tale to a child.


    Has Idea Agent turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Karen Saltus’s performance?

    Too wispy and lyrical.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really. The content was more of a biography rather than a book about dealing with creative knowledge workers. She cited her experiences in R&D at Corning and that probably doesn't represent a great experience set to author a book presumably about all creative teams. She should have done more homework regarding studies in the field of team dynamics for instance.
