This book feels like you found it at a garage sale - it shows it's age, but in terms of fundamentals, it's not necessarily BAD. I learned a ton from it and I think it's a valuable read, but very little updating went into it. The publishers have greatly exaggerated the few tweaks they've done. The bell-curve of selections peaks around the mid to late 80's - some from the 70's, some from the 90's, but very little from 2000 on. Many of the pieces comment on the contemporary business environment - the fundamental strategies they propose are sound, but make you wonder what you're missing by not reading something updated for the 2010's.
Also, please note: this is one of the most jargony and dense books I've listened to in a while. This was probably acceptable when the essays ("perspectives") were first circulated, but I think makes it a challenging listen today.
Overall, I recommend it, however.

Ok.. But SERIOUSLY.. Please don't waste your time like I did. It's better to take your pick at one of the 3 McKinsey Consulting books on audible .. Or the one from Bain Capital / Consulting.
