An okayish fare with too many loopholes

Not a great book to be fair. It follows a typical Indian cinema story telling. A book has to be narrated way different from a cinema. Keep the things taut and give no way for the loopholes. This has both of them. It never excites you with a flat story, flat narration and unnecessary and un laughable jokes. Even the performance is not that great. Its just an okayish fare at the best.

PRECIOUS is what I call ... A Must READ

I have just completed the first short story and the book is just marvelous. Stephen Fry, I would say is one of the best narrators that the ecosystem have. He brings life to the characters and the whole time, you feel you are with Sherlock Homes, as if you are in that room, that city and watching them from some corner, such is the impact of his narration. A must read for anyone not just for the content but also for a great great experience.

Good but the title is somewhat misleading

The book as whole is very inspirational for that short duration of time. But as the title suggests, it doesn't focus entirely on leadership as in Corporate leadership as such, but it's a mix of personal development as well as leadership. That being said, the examples he quoted were spot on and as a mark of his marketing, he even brings up a couple of his books to quote some examples.The vocals are perfect, the voice had the kind of confidence that keeps you hooked till the end, which I feel is very essential for an Audio Book. Overall, a good read.
