I listened to this book directly after listening to 'Up the Organization' a brilliant leadership book by Robert Townsend. The first chapter was so boring that I almost stopped listening and began thinking whether Audible had a refund policy for crap books. The author went on and on about the American context, which didn't capture my attention (as as Australian). I think even the most patriotic American would struggle with so much waffle. I persisted and was eventually rewarded with a few leadership gems scattered throughout the book. The book needs a good editorial prune and rewrite.
