More distinction between articles

The articles selected are interesting. I found I had read a few of them before but it was fine to listen to the repeats again. My biggest complaint is the lack of distinction between articles. I wanted them to sort subject matter into groups or more distinctly state the title. The switch between narrators was fine, but after a few articles, I lost track of which one I was on since some of the subject matter bleeds together. Overall, it was fine but I wouldn't go out of my way to listen again.

Loosely tied together mix of old & older Articles

I did not like just putting a bunch of articles together that had lots of buzz words and examples and minimal research.

meh

A hodgepodge of articles that make lots of secondary assertions (often conflicting) without sufficient background. a little arrogant in the approach.

Great Set of Reminders!

Would you listen to HBR's 10 Must Reads on Leadership again? Why?

Yes, I have listened to it 2 or 3 times already. The articles are great, short, to the point, and provide value.

This is worth your time to listen to.

Packed full of gems of insight, delivered in an engaging way. In my opinion what makes this unique is each piece is written with a sense of authenticity and respect for the readers time. In other words I learned how these leaders have all tamed their egos in a way that resembles each other - even though their content, opinions, and perspectives waver. This is why I recommend this purchase.

Narration was really bad

This was the first audio book I've listened to where the narration performance took away from the content. It seemed like the narrator was reading it for the first time and like errors were made, so they went back in later and recorded sections. These sections were at different volumes and intimations which for me made it difficult to follow.

Even for experienced managers a great listen

I came at this from a management point of view who is running a fast growing company and wants to get prepped for future pitfalls and listen to some great expert insight

This ticked all the boxes for me . I am familiar with Drucker and a few of the other writers already and enjoyed he use of real cases to enforce the messages being given
