    "Got some great tips"

    A great book, the author had clear objectives for detirmining which companies he would profile and makes the criteria clear when the book begins. I found this particularly helpful because when I was listening to the examples of what made certain companies effecient I was able to detirmine if it was applicable to my company (I have just two employees, so the likelihood of myself running into some of the situations the CEOs and executives in the book had to tackle is less likely).

    The narrator is easy to listen to and is excited about the topic making it sound more like listening to someone who's bought into the theories and is excited to share it with you opposed to some narrators who are monotous and make you fall asleep at the wheel (I listen to mine in the car).

    I didn't give it five stars because I wasn't being blown away every five minutes. My five star rating has gone to the 7 Habits, so if you're reading this review and also feel 7 Habits is a five star book then you'll probably be very excited with Less is More as well. Of the 24 business and self-help books I've read in the last 14 months, this is definitely in the top three.

    "Liked it"

    I really enjoyed the approach of this book. Started off a little slow but then offered some fantastic ideas about how to be productive; things I feel I can focus on such as "the single big idea," "what's the good business reason" and minimized bureaucracy. I thought this was great stuff.

    "GREAT"

    This book was just what my business needed. Practical efficiency and flat structures are very well outlined. I'll probably listen to it again and certainly recommend it.
