Great Book...Drone Narration

What made the experience of listening to The Innovator's Solution the most enjoyable?

The content of the book is great. Something every C and VP level manager needs to read.

Would you be willing to try another one of Joel Leffert’s performances?

No way...most drone voice I've ever heard. Puts me to sleep every time...even when I'm not tired.

Any additional comments?

Please get someone else to narrate this...and I'll actually buy it again to listen to it again.

A easy to understand presentation of a complex sub

The reader should be complemented on making the material alive and making it easy to understand. Good prononsiations makes the listening to a good alternative to reading the book. Well done :)

5 stars aren't enough

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Brilliant insight into how to create a sustainable and competitive positioning and how to ensure long lasting succes. Vital for any MBA student and serious professional. I have read many articles from Christensen as MBA student but value of book tying it all together is definitely worth it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Innovator's Solution?

Multiple insights throughout the book

Have you listened to any of Joel Leffert’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not sure if I listened to any other voice overs from Joel but this one was excellent.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended!

Chapter titles overpromise and under-deliver

Very interesting first few chapters. Unfortunately some controversial arguments don't give convincing proof in theory (and only feel generally appealing from the authors perspective). Chapter titles consistently overpromise and under-deliver. Still interesting read.
