Decent one

One major theme across the book. Quite insightful. The narration was bit too fast for my liking though. And the content of the book probably isn’t too well suited to an audio book.

Exceptional! A book that I will continue to revisit!

Whitney’s book is true to the title...”Building an A-Team.” Filled with meaningful examples, her book makes me view the work place from a different perspective. Thank you for your hard work bringing this book to life.
