Love this book. So many plots, twists, turns, surprises. Love the narrator's voice/s. Definitely a great listen. It also helps to provoke thought and inflection.

Awesome!

Wow! Super loved it. Amazing, educating and motivating content. This audio book is packed with practical, life changing wisdom that can be implemented immediately. I bought this book hoping to help refresh my knowledge and clarify my understanding of Kaizen. This was because having been exposed to so many tools for business process improvement and support and not feeling like I were ever going to use or remember them, I wondered if all the time and money put into studying were even worth the effort. I thought I would set it aside and listen to it in the Summer. Last year, I took some courses on 6Sigma, among other things, and now wanted to get a book that made a true difference in explaining the Kaizen concept and was not just a money grab so I spent weeks listening to introductions before deciding on this book. When I finally bought the book, I were so overwhelmed with post-grad level studies, related group projects, and exam preparation that I needed an occasional mental escape. I chose to listen to Dr. Maurer's version of what Kaizen is about and that turned out to be a very rewarding decision. I not only found myself intrigued and captivated so much that I plugged in earphones and listened all night, but because the idea was shown to be so simple that I would be foolish to not try it out, I also immediately started implementing the recommended small step approach to my project preparations. In the midst of 4 Regulatory Affairs & Quality Assurance exams and 2 high level projects, I found a most unexpected place of reason and calm. The tension in my neck and shoulders began to subside the longer I listened. Dr. Maurer's pleasant and wise words were the lullabies I fell asleep and woke up to at my study desk. By following the Kaizen little improvements approach, I finished my part of the projects on time and had lots of time left over. Like magic, I gradually found that I had fewer concerns about the upcoming exams. Study-life balance became real and achievable for the first time.

I took the time to write this review because this book has positively changed my life. By implementing the Kaizen method of one small improvement step at a time approach, I gained my life back and have a new understanding of Kaizen. It really works! This book comes loaded with practical examples and anecdotes. It is fun and funny to listen to and I still can't get "Hark, I heard the cannon roar" out of my head. I highly recommend this book. It is truly a great investment! I am not affiliated with the author in any way. I do admire his obvious strengths in teaching the Kaizen approach.

This book is awesome! An historical and predictive combination of significant events. Mind blowing narratives about where we have been, where we are headed, the political and scientific ambitions and controls that have been shaping and changing our worlds. Stimulating facts and intriguing food for thought make you wonder and ponder about our evolutionary trajectory and potential impacts. I didn't want it to end! Everyone should get this book.

I am very familiar with all that is in this audiobook. Over time, life got busier, I steered away from that important part of balance and traded happiness. The effects of losing my joy were, at times, devastating. This book is a timely reminder and a lifesaver in the moment. I'm so glad I bought it. I highly recommend reading this book both as a premptive and responsive measure then making it a lifestyle habit toward balance and self-preservation.

This approach truly met with my learning style. It was so easy for me to grasp and recall. I found myself correcting the errors of the students in the course which, meant that I actually learned. I will practice some more then try out my new learning at the Shwarma restaurant soon.😊

This book helped me to make a serious commitment to reduce the weight I gained over the past stressful year. I am Vegan so it was a welcomed addition to my dietary plan. Yesterday was Day1. I made two 10oz smoothies and had 1 for breakfast and 1 for lunch and had a 10oz tea in between and an apple at dinner. I did not have a single craving to binge eat when stressed. I had a really successful first day and am looking forward to 29 more of them. I love ginger and horseraddish so I will be incorporating those daily and a touch of fresh green chilli peppers once every 3 days. Great recipes. I recommend this book to help with detox, fat loss and as a good option for Vegans also. BTW, I am aiming to loss exactly 30lbs and am currently 165. If possible, I will update this review upon completion of the plan.😊

♥️💯 Very informative and meaningful

I learned so much more about investing than I could imagine. This course is like an mba in a nutshell. Professor Fullenkamp was clear, funny, and pleasant to listen to. I am now eager to take the lessons learned and explore my investment options. My only regret is not being able to see the resources he referred to during the course, such as charts and formulas. I will review this material a few times over as this will be my main "go to" resource before deciding on what to put in my portfolio. This course helped me to see just how much information has been withheld by my financial advisors. Now I can truly make more informed choices.

Great Information

The entire book was good. I only wish that there were exercise challenges to help encode. I felt that once I finished the book, it would take much effort for me to come up with coding exercises on my own as I study full time, write documents after school, and retun home to take care of kids. This is very tedious most days. Given both my lifestyle and learning style, I know that a few exercises would have helped me feel like I am making some type of memory improvement progress and gotten me motivated to get started on my own. Otherwise, I enjoyed the the book.
