Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes, but I would recommend buying the print book instead or at least as a companion.
What did you like best about this story?
Good information about the practices that will set you up for success. As the title indicates, one must do the things a leader does in order to be a leader.
How could the performance have been better?
It was very hard to assimilate the information as it was narrated and this book has a lot of figures that do not come across well in the narration. I would recommend that the narrator speak more naturally or as if giving a lecture and recognize that some portions are anecdotal and should be delivered as a story. Some details are more important that others and should be emphasized, but not every sentence should be spoken with impactful emphasis. Finally, speak just a little faster and with a more natural cadence.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
No. This is a learning book, not a story book.
Any additional comments?
This book has a lot of figures that are referenced in the text. It also has questions and assessments that really do not come through well as an audio book. I enjoyed listening to this book, but really wish that I had purchased the print version as well. This would be much better if the audio was available as a kindle companion.

I thought the content was very insightful and helpful but the reader sounded like William Shatner reading the nightly news. It was just distracting. I would recommend listening to the clip before you buy, but if you decide against the audiobook, the physical book is definitely worth it.
This is a very good book for practical advice on leadership but is also well supported by research and case studies.
