Time and again we create the product for selling it to the customers. When a product or services are designed we are too much focussed with our reasons for designing the product and services. The author helps us to understand the customer's need. The tells us to understand the customer's perspective. Seller and user are two sides of the same coin. A product or service doesn't succed because a lot of research and R&D has gone into it. Rather it succeeds as it has understood the customer's perspective. A thought provoking book to understand the customer's need.

The author basically debunks idea of target and budget. The author/book shares the idea of making a big move which transcends traditional idea of budgeting. Instead of focussing on past performance to arrive at future performance the author advocates the breakthrough suggestion of taking next move. The next move may be risky but still it will be better than staying put and following the established policies and strategies.
Overall just a Okay Read. One may try to listen or read it once. Based on my past readings I would suggest reading: Three Box Solution and Blue Ocean Strategy.. These two books also covers the next Big Move..

As I have read Effective Executive, Management: Tasks,Responsibilities, Practices and Managing Onself by Peter F Drucker, I would say that the book has gathered all the ideas from these books. The book/Author has embellished Drucker's theories, Ideas and Thoughts with practical examples from today's world. This makes the book standout. I would recommend others to read owing to various striking examples which will stick to reader's mind.
I would read/Listen it again. Reader Sean Pratt makes listening to this book pleasant and happy.

It has long been debated appropriateness money as a substitute for ethics and morals. There are acts and deeds which if done without monetary consideration gives us satisfaction which money would never give. With passage of time populace do consider money for exchange of altruistic acts. There are acts for which a doer would refuse to do if a monetary compensation is provided. The book explores the various acts which was once purely based on morals and ethics. Now such acts have turned into money minting acts. Thin thin line separating the altruistic action and action based on monetary consideration has blurred. The book ignites our imagination to think what should be priced (monetary consideration) and what should be done as an altruistism.

Though it was written in late 1940s, it is still relevant. The book echoes the objectionable practices discriminatory policies pursued by various government across the world.A must read to understand the psyche of governments (whether democratic, communist, dictatorial) across the world.

A must have book on public speaking.The author shares number of tips and techniques to hone Public speaking skill. These tips and techniques are embellished with real life anecdotes from world leaders. The book stands out. As the book is divided into independent chapters, readers or listeners can pick any chapter to start with. Would recommend others to listen or read it at least once. The narrator is wonderful. The voice of the narrator adds life and energy to the book.

There are far better books available . The book is about public speaking not about Presentation. Would strictly not recommend this book for public speaking or presentation skills. Those who wish to hone their presentation or public speaking skill, I would strongly recommend: Speak like Churchill Stand like Lincoln by James Humes.
