Good book

The book meet my expectations and I was most impressed with the chapter on teams. The narrator does a great job of reading some difficult sections (equations) in a way that makes it understandable.

Should be a PDF attachment

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

It will be a good movie

Any additional comments?

I just start listening and it was not long until I realized something is missing. The Author
refers to graphs and exhibitions that are most likely in the hard copy book, but are not attached to this audio book. I can not rate the whole work overall since I have not completed the book.
