    "giving you a free audio book thats available free!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    not the actual book and available free online anyway so Audible giving it away free was worthless.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Instaread again?

    Instaread was fine. The Audible offer was worthless.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not an actual book - its a review of the bookd

    "Utterly misleading"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is NOT the actual book. It's a sodding summary, which has been billed as ...let me check, yes there it is, an "UNABRIDGED" audiobook. Very uncool, especially for a full credit


    What could Instaread have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Increase the fine print


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Gilboe’s performances?

    If it were the full book, yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don't, by Jim Collins?

    I wouldn't cut anything. That has already been done with surgical precision


    Any additional comments?

    None

    "Good Summary !"

    This audio book does a good job of summarizing the actual full length book. I recommend it.

    "not the full book???"

    I downloaded the book from Amazon and it was a great price but I thought it was a sale on the full book it was only like 30 or 40 minutes long not for hours like the actual book I would like a refund

    "Format is horrible"

    Shame on me for not realizing that this is an incredibly short recap of the book. It was a waste for me. I will be downloading the unabridged and rate the real book. So disappointed that it wasn't more clearly communicated

    "Misleading cover"

    I consider this misleading... I thought this book is jim collins' book... You can advise me to learn to read, but the cover could look a bit different to make it clear for the first glace that this is only a review... :/

    "although I haven't read the book...."

    this overview seemed way to short and I felt it left a lot out that the book would deliver. it made the book seem useless which I don't believe

    "Slightly disappointed"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend this particular Audiobook because it's not the full version. Also the narrator sounds like a robot voice mail machine, which makes for difficult listening.


    What other book might you compare Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don't, by Jim Collins to, and why?

    I would recommend this book, but download the full version or get yourself a paper copy.


    What three words best describe Michael Gilboe’s performance?

    robot voicemail machine


    Was Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don't, by Jim Collins worth the listening time?

    It was over too soon

    "Too basic an overview to be of value."

    Although looking for the key takeaways from Good to Great, this book doesn't even really skim the surface. I knew full well what I was buying - I was looking for all the killer content without the filler; but the content here didn't help. Only around 10mins tops to cover all the content of the book. Too much filler around style and perspective, not enough on the book itself. Provided me very little help.

    "not what I expected. Didn't realise instaread was "

    Not what I expected. Didn't realise instaread was a condensed summary of the original book. I won't be purchasing another Instaread book.
