Excellent Executive Road Map

At last, an American business author who writes as if he will be believed, a narrator who reads clearly as if he were sitting in a lounge with you, no repetition or exaggerated strong points and no examples gleaned from a clammy home life.

I found myself reviewing my performance over the past two decades and wishing I had had this book beside me. It passed the ultimate two listener's book tests: I wished I could highlight things as I drove in my car; and I went out and bought the book. No need for the abridged version; Watkins wastes no words. Dry, realistic, insightful and helpful. I shall get his first book, 'The First 90 Days'.
