Starts with a Bang and Ends with a Whimper

  • Book Rating: 2/5

The beginning of this book starts in a very interesting and exciting manner with the author describing a very dangerous leadership task he had in the US army, and what happened. However, by the middle of the first of four cds, in his dry, authoritative manner, the author describes how his life experience and lessons in the army translate into business practices. This process goes on for the rest of the book. Some of his suggestions, though obvious, are practical, while others don't apply to the corporate world at all. By the end, he sounds like an old relic reading from a list of generalized, obvious or impractical rules that he made up. I found myself skipping through tracks at times, just to get through the book. Not worth your time.
