Would you try another book written by Gillian Tett or narrated by Eilidh L. Beaton?
Maybe I shouldnt blame the narrator but one thing spoilt this book for me. Her ridiculous use of accents when quoting real life characters. The French accent sounded like something from "Allo Allo", the Australians from a Fosters add and her American accent was appalling !! And why stop there..why werent the Sony execs given a Japanese Accent? Why didn't she differentiate between Americans from New York, Texas or Illinois... they have different accents . This ruined the whole book for me and made it almost un-listenable to
Who was your favorite character and why?
The 8 stories are interesting.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Eilidh L. Beaton?
Anyone. Although maybe the producer should be blamed.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Yes, if made into a documentary
Any additional comments?
I still have 1/3 of book to listen to but I had to send a review now I am so frustrated as I think the themes and subject are fascinating

I really enjoyed this but there was some repetition or bits I personally found a bit boring. Overall I found it very enlightening. The accents by the author were terrible, but who cares. Quite amusing really.
