There is some good content here. I suppose. There's got to be, because Womack's work has been so influential with very smart people.
BUT, this is the best example I know of why you want a professional reader. Womack's narration is like a lethargic robotic toad reading aloud a tax return form. And I think this abridgement misses some of the good stuff. I was very motivated to learn about Lean Thinking, but still I could hardly listen to it. Avoid.

Womacks voice is possibly the worst narration I have come across. The information is exceptional, but is almost impossible to assimilate because of his voice. If ever there was an argument for authors hiring professional readers, it is this book.

This book would certainly benefit from some lean management, it takes four hours to say what could be said in about an hour and a half! If you have any interest in producing an aluminium cola can then you are very fortunate as the author takes about twenty minutes describing the full process...it's painful!
Having said that, I am probably being a little over critical because I was hoping for a strategic overview of the main principles and not a detailed operational step by step description.

I am very much an admirer of James Womacks work. having read this before I got the audio book to brush up. James Woman should not have narrated it himself. He is unfortunately monotonous to listen to.

This audio is probably 1/8th of the book. And they don’t tell you that when you’re paying for it.
A shame considering the topic has plenty more content in the book.
Great detailed but yet to the point scenarios with every methodology explained... must listen for any Operational Professional.
