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

Well worth the listen,

A valuable read, now I need to re read and make notes. will look for the other publications in the series.
I did have to reduce the audio speed, it's a lot to take in.

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.
