Publisher's Summary

The Oz Principle took the business world by storm. At its root, the principle works like this: Like Dorothy and the gang in The Wizard of Oz, most businesspeople have the tools to succeed, but when things go wrong they blame circumstance or others instead of looking within for the true cause of unsatisfactory results. Once individuals learn to accept responsibility, they can use the Oz Principle to become better leaders.

Needed the unabridged version

It was very good but I wish I had the full version. This one was only able to highlight the major topics and didn't dig into the deeper philosophy of the topic. I can see it being of use in current businesses.

Very sound logic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to those who faces the challenge of managing and/or growing a business, teams, or focus groups. The Oz Principal, in application, is a simple, but very powerful tool.

Any additional comments?

The Oz Principle presents some very sound logic that can be applied to work and everyday life. While I found that there was no giant revelation, there certainly was an "ah-ha" moment when you dust the cobwebs off a principle that we all probably know, and start thinking about the power of it's practical application.

Couldn't finish it

After listening to nearly half of this audio book, I finally had to stop. Like so many of these types of books, the author takes a simple basic truth about life and explains it over and over with far too much elaboration and repetition. This book talks about the importance of making things happen by being proactive, but it shouldn't take an entire book to explain this!
