WORTHLESS, IMPOSSIBLE, AND STUPID How Contrarian Entrepreneurs Create and Capture Extraordinary Value

by | Read by David Drummond

Business & Finance • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Full of stories about the David Isenberg's extensive business experiences, this extended lesson shows how entrepreneurs find success by thinking differently, seeing things others don't see. The author's writing has an academic or perhaps engineering quality--it conveys a way of looking at things that is mostly analytical and certainly lacking in charisma. This aspect of the book seems exaggerated by David Drummond's performance, which hits all the enunciation and phrasing marks but has a low-key, unwavering urgency that would be more appropriate for a military training film than a lesson like this. This is an audio with some important insights to offer, but, whether it's the performance or the something about the author's perspective, it comes across in audio as intellectually removed and inaccessible.
