    "Drucker ' s story"

    the narrator was a great pick to help tell this story. although a lengthy and robust book...it has some superb nuggets on the world of the knowledge worker.

    "Useful reference but some suspect facts and dogma"

    Good to hear the original much quoted concepts.

    I'd be curious to know if the printed edition cites any references for 'facts' like "inequality is decreasing".
    The reasonable advice on management is undermined by rants on good and bad political or social structures and human nature.

    The compilation led to some repeats.
