essential, but...

these articles are certainly something that people should know in the business World. However, as an audio book it's a little rough to get through.

Back to basics

Many articles are 20-30 years old yet still prove just as relevant today. Refreshing listen that reminds me of the essentials of running a sound business, back to basics at its best.
