Publisher's Summary

Thinking strategically is what separates managers and leaders. Learn the fundamentals of how to create winning strategy and lead your team to deliver it. From understanding what strategy can do for you through to creating a strategy and engaging others with it, this book offers practical guidance and expert tips. It is peppered with punchy, memorable examples from real leaders winning (and losing) with real-world strategies.

It can be read as a whole, or you can dip into the easy-to-read, bite-size sections as and when you need to deal with a particular issue. The structure has been specially designed to make sections quick and easy to use--you’ll find yourself referring back to them again and again.

Strategy Espresso

I had a difficult time reading this book, but was intrigued enough by the scope of the contents to try the audiobook. So glad I did. It is a highly focused, potent collection of insights, ideas, and general education on strategy.

Many "what's", zero "how"

Ig this book was about diet, it would say something like "eat the right food", "eating is important in diet". Or maybe "eating has a direct impact in your weight", "eating can make you fat if you are not careful". And so on, I mean, what I just said about dieting is logic and you can't say I'm wrong, it's obvious! So I may be right, but what I just said about dieting is not going to help u in any way possible, you will agree with me, but that's it.

This book is like that, what the author sais about strategy is like "well, yes, I agree, sound ok", but nothing practical that you can really take to your life, and altough he attempts to give practical advice, it's in the form of "think about what strategy is best for u", "see the tendencies and adjust your strategy accordingly", and so on...I mean, I could just have written 75% of the book with general ideas and not specific advices...and of course I cannot say I am a specialist in strategy.

I regret buying this book, it didn't have many reviews but still I am interested in the subject, so I decided to hear it...big mistake. Save your time and money,nothing new here that you can meditate on or apply to.

A great tool

General enough allowing you to relate to your own situation, and make improvements. As with most books of this nature it must be read again at different points in your company journey or personal targets

Good ideas but an annoying narrator

Would you try another book written by Max Mckeown or narrated by Max Mckeown?

I would listen to another book of his as long as someone else narrated it.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Awful reading style

Was The Strategy Book worth the listening time?

I did not finish as I got fedup with the narrator

Worst audio book

Struggle to stay awake! Theory overload with very few real life examples of where the dufferent strategies have been implemented. Do not waste you time and money on this one!
