Content of the book was great, overall person reading on Audible not so much. Made me realize how much the "voice" really affected my desire to listen to this book. Other books I am banging away, this book I made it through 5 hrs of content and it was a snooze fest.
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.
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.
