    "Not just another flavor of the month"
    Would you consider the audio edition of 2 Second Lean to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The author narrarates the book himself and goes off script throughout the reading so you would miss a lot of points if you just read the printed version. The book does have lots of pictures that show what he is talking about and QR codes that link to videos that demonstrate lean improvements. Both are key to beginning your lean journey on the right foot.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Paul's enthusiasm is contagious and I think I caught it.


    Which character – as performed by Paul A Akers – was your favorite?

    Paul is a character.


    What did you learn from 2 Second Lean that you would use in your daily life?

    How to be lean, not just do lean.

    "One word: AMAZING."
    What did you love best about 2 Second Lean?

    Paul (and crew) know how to make it so simple to be lean.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    ALL OF IT. Paul is great at adding a little humor to Lean, making it so fun to read and made me want to start cutting out the waste in my life ASAP.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from 2 Second Lean?

    You don't have to make


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't felt so inspired in such a long time. I can't wait to read (listen on Audible) more of Paul's books--if he comes out with more!!

    "Simple book for insight into Lean"
    Would you consider the audio edition of 2 Second Lean to be better than the print version?

    No. The author voice becomes a little annoying after a bit with his comical tone he presents through most of the book. As the book professes and the author provides more substance he shifts to a somewhat more serious tone.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 2 Second Lean?

    The structure the author/narrator creates regarding cost savings.


    What did you learn from 2 Second Lean that you would use in your daily life?

    A lot. Cost savings and looking for easier inexpensive ways to complete task rather at hoe or at work. For those that don't know the technical jargon of LEAN he makes it very easy to understand for all.


    Any additional comments?

    Upbeat book worth giving a listen.

    "Written and performed with great enthousiasm !"
    Where does 2 Second Lean rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book has some valuable tips on extreme lean, and the writer has lean in the heart. The extensive website with the enormous amount of short and nice self-made videos is a good adition to the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Paul is a very inspiring person and his team helped me get a hardcopy of the book, so these people too did a great job. Great team @ FastCap :-)


    What about Paul A Akers’s performance did you like?

    I like the enthousiasm and humour of the writer, it makes the book a very enjoyable read/listen.


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

    The fact that the book is only around 2 hours makes it a great listen when driving between home and the office. Many books are just too long to stay focused over several sessions.
    I listened to it several times and I am sure I will get to it later when I am in the mood for a good companion on the road.


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to the audiobook, I ended up ordering the hardcopy (which I could not order through Amazon, my favorite webshop).
    Thanks Michelle for my book !!
