An iconic teacher. A warm friend. A generous mentor. For more than 40 years, Howard Stevenson has been a towering figure at Harvard Business School: the man who literally defined entrepreneurship and taught thousands of the world’s most successful professionals. Now - spurred by Stevenson’s heart-stopping brush with death - his student, colleague, and dear friend Eric Sinoway shares the man’s wisdom and inspiration.
Through warm and engaging conversations, we hear Howard’s timeless and practical lessons on pursuing success and fulfillment, beginning with:
Listening to Howard’s Gift is like having a wise, caring friend sit down and say, "let’s figure all this out together."
The reading voice chosen for this book borders on painful. But the content is extraordinary in its value to any of us trying to live a life of meaning and balance while always trying to get better at enjoying the world and changing the world.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
narration was too distracting. instead of allowing the writing to express ideas, the narrator's over the top attempt at impersonating made the listening experience awful.
What was most disappointing about Eric Sinoway’s story?
the tips or lessons were generic and too forever to get more specific.
Any additional comments?
keep narration of non fiction books simple so that content can be optimally expressed.
What would have made Howard's Gift better?
I'm certain that Howard's wisdom was passed along to many of his students. However, this biographical story lacks any real depth or significant ideas. I just kept waiting, expecting a gem or two of real wisdom. Just not there. Very disappointed in the purchase.
Has Howard's Gift turned you off from other books in this genre?
What aspect of William Dufris’s performance would you have changed?
Less affectation with his voice.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It just passed some time while I was on the road, but I was very disappointed that it lacked any depth or interesting concepts and ideas.
Any additional comments?
As for Howard's Wisdom, I guess you had to be there in person to see the magnificence.
