When most people think of Michael Jordan, they think of the beautiful shots, his body totally in sync with the ball, hitting nothing but net. He is responsible for incredible moments so ingrained in basketball history that they have their own names: The Shrug, The Shot, The Flu Game. But for all his greatness, there's also a dark side to Jordan: A ruthless competitor, a gambler. There's never been a biography that balanced these personas-until now.

it's not bad, performance is good and you get a fair amount of details. I'd have liked to have more input from Jordan himself. Clearly this author didn't have access to Jordan.

Based on the little clips here and there I always thought Gary Vee is so arrogant and a nobody. Listening to this book made me realized he's very genuine and smart. This book is great motivation but the content isn't very informative. I can't say I learned much but it does get you fired up.

Amazon.com started off delivering books through the mail. But its visionary founder, Jeff Bezos, wasn't content with being a bookseller. He wanted Amazon to become the everything store, offering limitless selection and seductive convenience at disruptively low prices. To do so, he developed a corporate culture of relentless ambition and secrecy that's never been cracked. Until now.

Titan is the first full-length biography based on unrestricted access to Rockefeller’s exceptionally rich trove of papers. A landmark publication full of startling revelations, the book indelibly alters our image of this most enigmatic capitalist. Born the son of a flamboyant, bigamous snake-oil salesman and a pious, straitlaced mother, Rockefeller rose from rustic origins to become the world’s richest man by creating America’s most powerful and feared monopoly, Standard Oil. Branded "the Octopus" by legions of muckrakers, the trust refined and marketed nearly 90 percent of the oil produced in America.

The only complaint I have is that it does not include much about the inner workings of Standard Oil and details of the thought processes behind some decisions made. It looks at it from a 20000ft distance angle.
Otherwise the book is great. Very informative on the man and the family too.

I'm a big fan of autobiographies. But this one left to desire. It's mostly a Starbucks marketing book, not much value added content unless you're a huge fan of Starbucks. I also found the reader tries to sound dramatic all the time which gets tiring when you're listening to the book.

Big companies spend a fortune marketing their wares and services. Can yours? Invariably people ask advertising veteran and CBC Radio host Terry O'Reilly one question more than any other: How does a little business compete with the big guys? After decades at the helm of an award-winning advertising production company, and over a decade exploring the art and science of marketing for CBC Radio, O'Reilly delivers all the answers they - and anyone with something to sell - ever wanted to know.

There are some interesting examples of people who have done things right. And of course I'm a big fan of the radio show, but if you're looking for a general guidebook of what a marketing department of a company is supposed to look like and what their responsibilities are, this is not it.
