Any additional comments?

This book's message is not really new but expands its story using the author's tool called accordion chart while frequently referring to the book Blue Ocean Strategy and the strategy canvas in the book. At first, the book was interesting, but things appeared repetitive as the it goes on because the accordion chart itself is not really new - it's just a tool to look at things in a higher plane, I mean it's just a tool while the underlying concept has been there already

One thing I really confused me about the book was the chapters in the audiobook - the chapter was some chapters in paper form was cut into two chapters so that I couldn't choose easily the chapter I wanted to listen to once again.
