Comprehensive - Maybe too Comprehensive

This audio book is very comprehensive and for my purpose, a bit too comprehensive. I listened to it once an I am only relistening certain chapters. There are a lot of topics around "management and the public institution" very philosophical management topics, details (e.g. John Smith, 1873-1935) etc.
But the chapters that I found useful, definitively have a lot of "beef" on it. Listening to the speaker for prolonged times can be strenuous (e.g. his voice is following me even after it's off...)

Not just management, but really good advice

No matter what you consider your role in the workplace to be, there will be something in this book to improve it. The personal insights and wisdom which come in the last few chapters are particularly enlightening, and are astoundingly good advice to anyone who will listen.
