    "Too technical for an audio book"
    What would have made Thinking Strategically better?

    PDF's to accompany the audio.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Avinash K. Dixit again?

    Probably not, I would rather read it.


    What didn’t you like about Mark Delgado’s performance?

    A bit robotic.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It's technically a sound book, but not for audio, unless there are accompanying PDF documents. Narration could probably also have been better.

    "better read"
    Any additional comments?

    Not a good book to listen to because it references several charts and performs many logical proofs.

    "Needs a PDF with charts to make the connections"
    Would you try another book from Avinash K. Dixit and/or Mark Delgado?

    this book needs a PDF with charts to make the analysis easier to follow


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)


    What didn’t you like about Mark Delgado’s performance?


    Do you think Thinking Strategically needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Story
    "Robotic performance!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend and will purchase the hardcopy as a great reference and case study product. The narration was just horrible. A wonderful and well-written text with a robot reader. Why would Audible subject their audience to this one--youck!


    If you’ve listened to books by Avinash K. Dixit before, how does this one compare?

    Not applicable.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Are you kidding? This performance can go nowhere but up. Terrible!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book that I found very interesting. The quantitative decision making process is one of my favorite process tostudy and theorize upon. Great illustrations. But buy the book, the narrator is like a robot. Sorry robots!

    Story
    "Diagram dependant, monotone narrator, still good"
    What made the experience of listening to Thinking Strategically the most enjoyable?

    The content. There were dozens of casestudies that made it useful.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Delgado’s performances?

    No. His performance was montone and dull at best.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It required some digesting


    Any additional comments?

    Although I wished I had a copy of the actual book to see the diagrams and charts, it was still a good book and I'm glad I listened to it.

    "Dominating read"

    A good layman's review of game theory including topics such as the prisoners dilemma and other strategies to negotiate for optimal outcomes. Key theory was put yourself in the other person's shoes and look ahead to know where they want to end up and the plan back to drive for your optional outcome.

    "Narrator is text-to-speech robot"

    I bought this book but it is unlistenable. It has been recorded using a text-to-speech robot and. Every. Sentence. Sounds. Like. This.

    I. Only. Got. A. Few. Minutes. In. Before. I. Had. To. Ask. For. A. Refund.

    Save yourself the hassle and don't bother. Audible should really remove this "audio book". Zero marks, folks
