Topgrading, 3rd Edition
- The Proven Hiring and Promoting Method That Turbocharges Company Performance
- By: Bradford D. Smart Ph.D.
- Narrated by: Erik Synnestvedt
- Length: 10 hrs and 33 mins
Great companies, large and small, rise or fall because of their talent: The more high performers on your team, the more successful your organization will be. Of course, that’s easier said than done. Research shows that only about 25% of all new hires turn out to be high performers. But companies that have used Brad Smart’s Topgrading system over the past two decades have boosted their hiring success rates dramatically - sometimes even to 90%.
Very self serving

I though I was buying an audiobook. What I got was an hours-long infomercial. It’s difficult to express how disappointing this book is. At best it’s a drinking game - take a sip every time Bradford says “Topgrading”. You won’t make through the first half of the first chapter. I listened to the books first five chapters dry and was likely more disappointed as a result. Avoid this sales pitch.
