Would you try another book from Kevin Kruse and/or Kevin Kruse?

Yes - if they fix the sound quality. Very difficult to listen too - sounds like t was recorded in a bathroom and then compressed to a low-bitrate mp3. The human voice is the one thing we hear around us everyday, so when it sounds unnatural we pick up on that right away.

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

Yes - see above.

Any additional comments?

Re-record this in a professional studio and you have a winner!

Simplicity isn’t just a design principle at Apple - it’s a value that permeates every level of the organization. The obsession with Simplicity is what separates Apple from other technology companies. It’s what helped Apple recover from near death in 1997 to become the most valuable company on Earth in 2011. Thanks to Steve Jobs’s uncompromising ways, you can see Simplicity in everything Apple does: the way it’s structured, the way it innovates, and the way it speaks to its customers.

If you had the opportunity to work where, when, and with whom you wanted - all while getting paid very well - would you take it? Self-made multimillionaire and best-selling author Michael Masterson did, and with Ready, Fire, Aim he'll show you how to do the same.

Excellent book - very focused, with great advice for entrepreneurs. No matter what stage your business is at, you're sure to find something of immediate relevance.
Only negative for me is the narrator: I would've loved to hear this read by the author himself. The narrator simply does not sound authoritative enough. You don't get the sense that he has any connection to this material; that he been through any of these experiences.
