It’s not bad, just not good.
The subject matter; life lessons for work and at home drawn from an African ‘way of living together successfully and with happiness’ is great stuff.
This book might be a good intro for someone in the protagonists position - but I can’t even remember his name now because he was just your stereotypical American middle-management shill - overworked and unobservant.
The story, at least in audible form, just comes across like “See Dick. See Jane. See Dick and Jane. See Dick Run.”
Patronizing and childlike are probably too harsh a term but the subject matter, the point of Ubuntu, deserves more consideration and a deeper exploration into how it applies across cultures.
This story just doesn’t do it.
What made the experience of listening to Ubuntu! the most enjoyable?
While this was a fictional story, it teaches you about a real philosophy , Ubuntu will help you move forward in life, whether in business or personal, I highly recommend this book
Would you try another book written by Bob Nelson and Stephen Lundin or narrated by Dominic Hoffman?
Yes. This book was a gentle reminder to find value with colleagues through collaboration.
Would you recommend Ubuntu! to your friends? Why or why not?
What aspect of Dominic Hoffman’s performance might you have changed?
The performance was good.
Do you think Ubuntu! needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes. I could see how the authors could illustrate the Ubuntu philosophy through other applied scenarios.
Ubuntu is an African culture that will help any person to connect with his/her colleagues. Embracing each others contribution to work together in unity.
