CONFIDENCE How Winning Streaks and Losing Streaks Begin and End

by | Read by Rosabeth Moss Kanter

Personal Growth • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Too bad the folks at Random House didn't have the "confidence" to stop Rosabeth Moss Kanter from reading her well-researched tome on winning and losing streaks. Kanter's careful word-for-word narration lacks modulation and rhythm, and the result is an audiobook that is neither conversational nor convincing. Part of the blame could be Kanter's prose, which sometimes lapses into inspirational cliché ("A loss is a crossroads, not a cliff.") or clunky biz-speak ("Leadership is not about the leader. It is about how she or he builds the confidence of everyone else."). Nevertheless, the underlying data and theories are sound and worth checking out ... though this is a book you're better off reading in print. R.W.S.
