This is an excellent resource for parents with kids of any age. The author - who is also the narrator - is very passionate about this subject and is also very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this.

Horrendous work all around

I don't know where to start with this. I have had generally good luck in going with books by looking at the ratings - which is how I picked this book. This turned out to be an exception. Ratings are good but the overall book is a sheer waste of time. First I was going to give the book the benefit of doubt as I doubted the narration (which was just so bad that I can't even write anything about it) was making it appear bad but I stuck with the audiobook to see if I was missing something. In the end, although narration made it worse, the book itself has no meat in it. Just horrendous piece of authoring.

I would really ask for my credit/money back if I really could with this. I saw if there was any option but there wasn't or at least I couldn't figure out if there was a way.

Jim Collins is an excellent author. There is always in-depth research behind the conclusions. There are always key takeaways which we may not have thought about. This work is no exception. Excellent book all around with a lot of insights. I personally like to listen to stuff about how great culture is built and maintained within companies.

I am most thankful to Jim for also narrating this. His passion comes through in the narration and it doesn't feel like someone is reading a book, instead it feels like you are actually having a conversation.

Excellent book!

This is a very good book by Jay. And the passion comes through also from him actually narrating it. It is a very good self help book and I would recommend this. Learnt some valuable lessons from this. Thanks for the book.

This is a fantastic book to read/listen. This is well beyond helping oneself at the workplace and will also help you personally. Thanks to Shawn for also reading the audio book himself.
