    Story
    "Some interesting facts"
    Would you try another book from Peter F. Drucker and/or Michael Wells?

    I don't think so.


    How could the performance have been better?

    He could spice it up a little. It was terrible monotonous and boring, like listening to a robot.


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Innovation and Entrepreneurship?

    Entrepreneurs.


    Any additional comments?

    It's got a few interesting facts and ideas, but it's wrapped in such a long and monotonous narrative that it's hard to stay awake to it.

    "Bad reading to an excellent book"

    Books that have long lasting insights are rare. Some of the insights are still valid in 2015. And that is amazing. Just not enjoyable experience due to the monotony of the reader.

    Story
    "Great book read by a robot"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book's content is wonderful, heck it's Peter Drucker, right. But the author speaks like a robot, like an automated answering machine voice and that takes away so much from the content and makes it hard to get into the sage lessons inside.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Innovation and Entrepreneurship?

    Talking about how building a culture of abandonment and acceptance of failure as part of constant testing is a good thing.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Wells?

    Don't have a better suggestion.


    What did you take away from Innovation and Entrepreneurship that you can apply to your work?

    Some meeting techniques in building a culture of entrpreneurship, searching for surprise failures and successes and digging deeper into them, creating a culture of change and truly understanding the customer deeply.

    "Great Read"

    Should be standard text for anyone entering into business. A brilliant and insightful analyst who packs historical accuracy into current analysis on page after page. One of the best business books I have ever read (listened to!)

    "Very poor production"

    The audio quality and narration are so poor that this book is unlistenable. It sounds like someone read the book into telephone voice mail -- someone who was bored.
