Classic Peter Drucker: synopsis of actually how to create a tangible future based on or built upon knowledge & wisdom and possessing a high degree of Emotional Intelligence, maintaining integrity and respect & trust in people.
Obviously this is just my opinion, but honestly it ranks amongst the worst audio books I've ever bought. As an audio book this sort of thing does not work at all well. It would have been much better to present it as a series of themed index cards or a blog posts.
I'm not questioning the quality of the subject material. However the author's presentation of it in this format was stupefyingly dull. I just could not force myself to process what he was saying and turn it into something valuable and practical I can apply to my life. That is a shame, given the standing of Peter Drucker himself.
The only value I can imagine anyone finding in this work is as a reference manual for others who want to write about Peter Drucker, or study the man's works. It's the sort of thing you'd probably get good marks for in college.
The author's style is passive and jam-packed with endless citations of book titles (including the edition number) and dates. There's little more to the book than that. Everything he writes seems to be interrupted with these citations. If he'd had the guts to provide a strong personal opinion, interpretation and continuous narrative - perhaps with footnotes instead of citations mid paragraph - it would have flowed better and I might have found more value in it.
