©1989 by Peter F. Drucker; (P)1990 by Blackstone Audiobooks
I have yet to be disappointed by a Peter Drucker book. It's good to read an old volume such as this if not only just to validate how far ahead of his time he was. It's amazing how accurate some of his predictions were, and how true most of the strategies and means he wrote about still apply.
I don't think so.
He could spice it up a little. It was terrible monotonous and boring, like listening to a robot.
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.
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.
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.
Talking about how building a culture of abandonment and acceptance of failure as part of constant testing is a good thing.
Don't have a better suggestion.
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.
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!)
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.
