It's a review. Not the Goal. Misleading title.

I feel conned having used a credit on this book. It is not The Goal, but a summary review of it. Should be removed from audible.

Not the Goal - just one readers synopsis of it

I was disappointed. I downloaded the book The Goal - or so I thought!
What this is is NOT the book the Goal but rather is one readers views and a very short bit of a synopsis of what the book is about. It essentially is an advert or trailer for the book. I am annoyed at having paid to listen to an advert / commercial 😱😁😓

DO NOT BUY!!!

What would have made The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox: Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review better?

If it was the book I wanted to buy instead of an overview!

Has The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox: Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I still want to read The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement: Revised Third Edition

How could the performance have been better?

The reading is sub-par!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger

Any additional comments?

Same look and cover as the book I wanted but, not the 360-page book I was looking for. Is there some way to bet my money back!

This is Just a Summary

What would have made The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox: Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review better?

I wasn't aware when I purchased this that it wasn't the full copy of the book. That should be made more clear.

Would you ever listen to anything by Instaread again?

Yes, but only if I knew going into it what I was getting.

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

Simple summary of some complex ideas.
