It is a great book and it's sad that the audio is not at the same level. Bad quality makes it hard to understand (microphone noise). Also, the reader doesn't always use the correct pauses. It's almost like he is reading the phrases for the first time.
Too bad because overall it is a great book
"A Must for all executives and subordinates"
A great tool for reviewing the book you just read - it brings it all into perspective
"Get to the meat of the book"
Sometimes you just want to get to the point. These guys really boil down to the essential details of the book well.
"Great book "
Great Book. Very practical examples and easy to follow. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about leadership.
