Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book to anyone who is in the corporate world and affected in any respect by large project management, as well as small business owners who deal with managing large projects
What does Lucy Vest bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Honestly, I found Ms. Vest's reading dry and uninspiring. Actually, that's okay -- because this is a pretty cut and dry book. It's about a clear cut system, and part of the goal of this system is *avoiding* drama of projects gone wrong.
Any additional comments?
I at first expected this to be a book that would be great for listening to in the car -- actually, it's not. A listening to the book calls for referring to the companion pdf with illustrations. I mean, the narrator LITERALLY calls for you to refer to specific illustrations at points in the books. Once I adjusted my expectation, the book felt more like a private session with a highly experienced tutor, who was walking me through all the concepts through both work and image.This is an extremely detail oriented book, and while I do not work within the corporate world, I found great value in applying many of these concepts to projects I need to manage as a small business owner. If you are seeking greater effectiveness from you efforts, I recommend listening to -- and applying - the concepts in this audiobook.
I received a copy of this audiobook at a discount in exchange for an honest review.

Clydebank does much better than this usually.
Poor audio, can't understand the narrator.
Just break down & pay the extra $ for Peter Druckers Management... it's worth it in the long run.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If it had lived up to it's name of being for beginners

Boredom. Series of definitions and industry terms like a long list is not what this book should be.
Any additional comments?
It's just a eries of definitions and industry terms like a long list is not what this book should be. It's the most boring way to learn and unintelligible unless you want to rote learn terminology only.
