(P) and ©1992 Stanford Alumni Association
Listening since 2004. Mystery, thrillers and anything that can blend with a walk, jog, exercise, long drive or a wait at the airport.
I did not get a single piece of insight, which I would have not got by just existing on this planet. Or may be the stuff would have been ok had I heard it 10 years back. If you simply want to listen to $3 worth of ancient concept that has been successfully used, you may have a go at this. However, if you expect to gain some insights or new methods, path-breaking concept or innovative ideas then you are in the wrong place. This is not a verdict on Guy Kawasaki but an opinion on the lecture. Let there be no $3 misunderstanding on this.
poor audio. this was a lecture that was re-purposed to be sold.
yes, kawasaki has great ideas.
it was cheap so I don't regret buying it.I guess I should have expected what i got.
I'm not sure why one of the reviewers was so critical and stated that there was nothing new in this lecture. Perhaps, he's correct that there is nothing new. Keep in mind, Guy mentions his age (38), which would mean the lecture must have been made around 1992. That is quite some time ago, and before the Web!
So in that sense, it was a little dated, which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. However, the principles are timeless, and the presentation was very good. Simply from the perspective of someone who also does lectures at industry events, it was good to hear Guy. It does a very good job of weaving in anecdotes and keeping the audience engaged with humor.
The content was quite good, and as I indicated, the principles are timeless, and still very relevant in a "Webified" world!
