Straightforward on facts and easy to understand

I like the way they separated topics and made sub categories which are numbered, it made it easy to follow the content when I only listened it with breaks between the topics
The content said in it was useful in managing an organisation and straightforward on facts.
I like the way the author wrote this book, it felt like he is talking to me and teaching me rather than someone is reading up a monologue.

Oh no!

Just underwhelmed from start to finish. I appreciate that TP is a management guru but this just missed the mark by a country mile for me.

An excellent book.

It is very clear and succinct. I can listen this book again and again and implement. Thank you.

Visionary for its time, not worth the purchase

Visionary for its time, and does a great job of summarizing the key points, however many of these points can be found elsewhere in management literature of today.

Not the Real Version

I have the actual paper edition but bought this book since I have a lot of windshield time. This book cannot even be close to the version due to the size comparison differences. Honestly, I am disappointed. The content I heard was good but can't give it 4 stars if I haven't heard the whole thing.
