In business, performance is key. In performance, how you organize can be the key to growth. In the past five years, the business world has seen the birth of a new breed of company - the Exponential Organization - that has revolutionized how a company can accelerate its growth by using technology.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Kevin Young?

I read a decent number of business books. This one seems second hand. It's like the authors read some business books, and then wrote a business book about the business books they read. It's filled with buzzwords and surface-level understanding. I believe the themes are actually right and true, there was just a big lack of depth.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin Young’s performances?

This performer has a very strange cadence and style of pronunciation. Quite off-putting. It definitely adds to the feeling of the book being full of poop.
