Book is fine but I have no access to PDFs. If I knew that before I bought it i wouldn't have.

Concise

As usual, HBR provides 10 useful short related lectures. It was ok to listen at 2.5x speed so didn't take long to listen. Some interesting bits to remember.

too much reading data tables

significant chunks of this is just reading an article verbatim including tables of data. very difficult to follow.

Ever considered a woman can be a manager?

Honestly couldn’t get past the consistent use of ”he” and ”him” when referring to new managers. The only time I heard “she” was when referring to employees. So dated, and genuinely frustrating to listen to.

A valuable read, now I need to re read and make notes. will look for the other publications in the series.

Great tips - shame about recycling articles

I enjoyed the book overall. I was just disappointed that some of the articles I'd already read and paid for in other books in the same series.
