Really enjoyable (audio)book.

This is a business book about people. The subtext of sports, running, athletes etc makes it familiar.

A biography of Nike.

I’ll offer you a single piece of advice worth more than all the advice in this book.

Don’t buy it.

The audiobook started off well but quickly seemed to turn into a book of opinions from the author which were backed up by very little.

The narrator / author has a raspy, slightly high pitched voice which doesn’t work well for a narration of long text, in my opinion.

Finally, I didn’t know anything about the author before purchasing, other than a bit of research online. while I think that the 12 points he makes are valid and useful, it appears that there is a constant justification for Christian beliefs in the book. At times, justification of other views of the author, like physically disciplining children are represented.

If you’re looking for a book which justifies some dated ways of thinking this is probably for you.

I’m sure this book will be really useful for some people but I misjudged it before purchasing.

It’s too patronising and constantly talks about:
Chimps, gremlins, stones, computers, moons, carrots and sticks.

Nonsense.

A great book from start to finish.
Every chapter has a great balance of computer science and its application to human life alongside a healthy dose of history.

The first book I've heard in audio that proved too good not to buy a readable version for reference.

Please write a follow up!
