Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend to anyone who struggles through a career role that is mired in politics, bureaucracy, and "because that's the way we've always done it" mentality. The audiobook, in particular, was very well narrated. The voice was solid with great inflection and I found him pleasing and easy to listen too.
What did you like best about this story?
The practical components that I can take out and use in my everyday work life. The acknowledgement that candor can be valued, the slow pace that can cripple efforts to change, finding ways (sometimes small) to get folks on board with change, and how to handle it when you just cannot fire someone. Yes sometimes that really does happen.
Have you listened to any of George Newbern’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not listened to any previous but I would listen to him in any book. I am well pleased with the narrator.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I had no extreme reaction other than careful thought for what the book was saying.
Any additional comments?
I'm going to purchase the regular book as well on kindle. There were too many places where I wanted to write things down - but I use audio books on long runs and commutes and neither is conducive to jotting notes down.
