This is not a bad book. I could probably give it 3.5 stars if the rating system allowed it. The book is well organized and covers a lot of information regarding the process of re-inventing organizations and yourself. If you need a pep talk, it is a good book and it has a lot of good ideas.
Why not a higher rating? The book simply does not cover much in the way of new ground. There really is not much here that was not covered decades ago by Napoleon Hill and there are many other newer books that cover much of the same subject matter in much the same way.
Still, the book moves well and the stories included for inspiration and explanation, although some are familiar, are good.
The narration, by the author, is not bad. However, as is so often the case, a professional narration probably would have been better.
One word of warning: The author is from Detroit, and a lot of the examples are about Detroit. The author earnestly believes that Detroit will re-invent itself as a great American city. If you do not want to hear repeatedly about that, this book is not for you.

I stopped listening at chapter 3. Great content so far but horrible delivery. I stopped and started provably 10 times trying to get past the author's distracting cadence because I love the information presented, but I found that I was simply repeating each sentence in my head using the correct diction and emphasis on words to make sense of the sentences. I am so frustrated right now. I cannot believe that this author, of all people, did not select an experienced and quality performer/ reader to present this information in the best form possible. I am so disappointed that I am going to ask for a refund so I can purchase the book and read it myself.
