Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcus | 3/15/2013

    " Far from being a quintessential reading, it just adds up some input to the theme, but seemed to be too long for not taking you anywhere. I started with some expectations that were not accomplished at the end. "

    " Good topic, mediocre book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 9/13/2012

    " This book helped me understand how and why I work the way I do. It also helped me get the appreciation and support for a group of knowledge workers in the company I worked for so they could continue to contribute the "hard to evaluate" gifts they produce each and every day. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 1/30/2012

    " There wasn't much beyond common sense in this book (but maybe that's typical for management books?) :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corza | 11/29/2011

    " Love the first half of the book. It then tends to fade in the second half talking about some case studies that don't necessarily align with my situation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 1/8/2011

    " As this book tends to fall into the world of useless buzz words, it was a horrible mess of a book. With that said, the information contained within was good once you deciphered it. "
