Pretty good

Some useful tips and ideas like the scorecard.

For large businesses it's great, but for sole traders far less so.

A few really good ideas came from it, but lots of lists make it hard to follow at times. Fine if you're working at a desk whilst listening, but not for in the car etc.

outstanding information, will be buying the book

jam packed full of systems and methods to apply to your book I quickly realised I wanted to write everything this down but in the end just listened through and decided I'd buy the book. honestly I'm not even going to buy the kindle version, I'm going to buy the paperback because I want the information on paper. before you buy the audio book or papepr book you can check on the Eos worldwide website for a bunch of free resources but they mostly won't have context without the book.

Solid material

Because it is a process driven system the material is dry
The reader is monotone and this doesn't enliven the content
The EOS is a commendable system and worth implementing

Good Summary of Key Principles

Enjoyed the various examples and thoughts shared in the book. Good listen for budding managers. Narration could have been better. Still good to listen.

it's an intense book

I believe this audible should be accompanied with diagrams, maybe the physical book has these. I listened to this audible after the e myth revisited so it was a nice continuation. Lots to implement. my only criticism of the author is he is not a great teacher as there isn't that hold your hand feeling. it's more a here's how you do it, now apply it in your own way.

Some good tips, best to buy papercopy

What did you like best about Traction? What did you like least?

There're good golden nuggets, however after a while it becomes a bit repetitive and hard to follow. I think it is best to buy the paper copy

Would you be willing to try another book from Gino Wickman? Why or why not?

Not for now

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin Pierce?

Probably

Could you see Traction being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Not really

Any additional comments?

Mostly focus for decent size companies with plenty of bodies.

Great audiobook

Packed full of value! I have just ordered the paperback version too so I can go through everything again. I think this book is just what my company needs at the moment, after recently merging with another company, things are a bit all over the place and hopefully the tools etc in this book will pull us all together, and get everyone on the same page.

Really enjoyable and actionable!

What made the experience of listening to Traction the most enjoyable?

Loved this book. It might captures the key concepts from many other famous business books, and it puts them into practical steps which are easy to implement. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to scale their business by systemising everything!

What other book might you compare Traction to, and why?

the 12 week year - as it's about getting stuff done - strategically.
