What the Critics Say

"Even though Denny was a fierce competitor, I couldn't help but admire him for his strong track record of performance, his no-nonsense approach, and his honesty and integrity." (Dan Hesse, CEO, Sprint Nextel)
"Denny Strigl is one of the most consummate competitors I have ever known! That's saying a lot considering the 14 years I played in the National Football League. I have been a front-row observer of his business acumen at Verizon for the past 7 years as the president and CEO of CTIA. The Wireless Association. In this book, in typical Strigl manner, Denny pulls no punches! Managers, Can You Hear Me Now? is a straightforward and honest look at priorities and decision making in today's fast-paced world as told by not just a survivor but a success in this competitive world." (Steve Largent, President and CEO of CTIA-The Wireless Association, former U.S. Congressman, and former NFL player)

This book hits home

Would you consider the audio edition of Managers, Can You Hear Me Now? to be better than the print version?

I probably would not have read this book but audible allowed me to use my daily commute more productively.


Any additional comments?

Denny speaks on the things I was once passionate about and then lost focus. He put me back on a path to being a better manager and helped me to regain my focus on what I should be doing.
