Definitely a great summary of the classic

Easy and quick listen. The speaker is far from monotone. Not a substitute for the original book, but certainly a solid summary

Really a summary

I can say it's a good starting point and we can do a little better at summarizing the book with this version...see I learned something, used and instead of but and "we"
