Best book on strategy I've read (heard!)
Well structured, well paced, and brings together the best of Porter's genius insights in an easily digested format. Highly recommend it!
Comprehensive and methodical guide.
Well written and set out; insightful with great quotes, examples and further reading recommendations.
Can forgive the 'yawn factor' to some extent as it's more of a text book than a reading/listening-for-pleasure book.
Exactly what you need to know!
Authoritative, engaging and up-to-date. Great as an introduction, refresher or a resource to inspire new thinking on a current challenge. Would recommend highly.

Not bad, a little dry, sometimes smug.
Good principle, well written and well read; but despite the subject, this is definitely a condescending and prescriptive 'how to' manual rather than an inspiration.
