Summary

This edition features four great business articles. In our first article, we'll find out the difference between having what it takes to be considered for a CEO position, and actually getting it. Also, we'll find out what turns smart, ambitious people into underachievers, as well as how the right autobiographical story can help you in your personal life and your career. Plus, you'll learn how to critically re-assess your priorities before an unforeseen crisis forces you to.

Excellent special issue

Learn what turns smart, ambitious people into underachievers and how the right autobiographical story can help you in your personal life and career. I found both these articles very useful. Particularly creating the an autobio to match career goals - a new way to thing about the, "Tell me about yourself" question in an interview or introduction.

Very little here about managing yourself.

Would you try another book from the author and/or the narrator?

Maybe

Would you ever listen to anything by the author again?

Yes

Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

None

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

The subject matter bared little relation to the title.

Any additional comments?

Two hours of ego massaging of potential CEOs.
