Good, but not "blown away"

Where does Inside the Tornado rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Somewhere in the middle. It's the content that counts, and Geoffrey Moore seems to have a vantage point on business that no one else has.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Inside the Tornado?

The little interludes of cheesy music. The music sounded dated.

That said, the information is extremely valuable for business leaders and marketers.

What does Geoffrey A. Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is the author, so to hear him read it gives it a little extra weight I guess. He also has a friendly voice and talks at a nice tempo. I did not listen to this at 2X speed.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"Rated NA, Nerd Admission Only

Another must-read for technologists

I work in the technology industry, and have worked with every "stage" of customer Moore has listed here...from the visionary/enthusiasts to the laggards. His characterization of these customer stages is so spot on that it's actually funny.

Before the next technological marvel product comes around, get your basics right, so you can recognize which stage your particular product is in!
