What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A different narrator that has passion for the subject
What was most disappointing about Bill Aulet’s story?
I couldn't get past 10 minutes with this; I kept having to restart because I'd tune out after a minute or so.
What didn’t you like about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance?
It sounds 'read'; no passion here. Get excited about the topic to keep the listener listening.

The narrator sounds like a pompous snob, almost ruined the book for me. The content is excellent though, two thumbs up.

This is a good overview of things to consider if setting up a business. Things that come naturally to Entrprenuers, but maybe don't to others.
I am not a fan of management speak and formular using letters. There is a little of this in here, but the rest is easy enough to listen to.
practical with excellent framework guide for any new business idea or venture! highly recommended! enjoy
Any additional comments?
I have read good books and haven't left comments. Read bad books and haven't left comments. However, i feel so cheated by this monstrosity that I am compelled to leave a comment.
If you missed the fact that Bill attends MIT, you will know this by the end of chapter 1 (why, oh why didn't i stop reading here). And if you miss that chapter, continual references to his colleagues & students at MIT will ensure that you know it sooner rather than later. And if you missed that Bill attends MIT, you will know it by the end of chapter 1. Oh, don't forget Bill's students attend MIT. Aaaand so does Bill's colleagues. Aaand Bill teaches there. At MIT. Aaand this book was written by someone (that would be Bill) who attends MIT. M.I.T, Yay! And if that's not intelligent enough for you, we then get to rename common concepts so that they then become our original idea, 'cause that would give us a competitive advantage. Opps, sorry I meant that would give us Core. But wait you want more intelligence? Lets 'Lean' on someone else's concept, get all nitpicky with the wording and the claim that our bastardisation of someone else's original concept is far superior (we can do this because we are MIT).
So, unless you are dazzled by MIT, want to be a fanboy of MIT, or there is a certain teacher at MIT that you want to impress, do yourself a favour and choose a different book.
