This recording promises to bring poetic insights to soul-withering corporate life and to restore creativity and commitment to the workplace. But by rushing through his book in a portentous monotone, poet/consultant David Whyte cheats his listener, his subject and his overly lush, fervid prose. Every edit is audible in his changes of tempo and modulation. As he tires, his diction trips over his swollen tongue. One wonders at the odd repetitions and pronunciations, when he will get to the point and when the next piano bridge will relieve the tedium of listening. For details on Whyte's provocative and important thesis, pass up this tape and read the book. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG 96]
