An Eye-Opening Read

Thank you Goodreads and the authors of this book for the free giveaway. I am grateful for the chance to read a book unfamiliar to me.

When I first got this book, I thought it was going to be a simple strategy guide to becoming a better player in the digital game. Little did I know that it was geared towards executives who run businesses. With that revelation on my mind, I still pushed through, hoping to learn a thing or two.

I won Fast Times as part of a Kindle giveaway. Long story short. The key to being a digital winner is to make decisions quickly. If the first one doesn't work, be willing to try something new.

The book was very uneven, which may be a reflection on the different authors. The earlier chapters were the most unhelpful, with the later chapters being the most helpful. The beginning chapters were poorly (maybe arrogantly?) written, with every possible jargon and corporatese thrown in.

This book is really not for me, a retired 75 year old schoolteacher. So, I can’t really rate it fairly. I read the first couple of chapters, which told me who 5his book was for. I gave it 4 stars because I felt it would be unfair to give it anything lower, but not a 5 because the first chapter should have been enough explanation about who the book was for, wasting 2 chapters leads me to believe there might not be much substance to this book.

Just OK

Having led multiple transformations as my corporation evolved the topics in this “FastTimes” are basic and too general to be impactful. Scan for what provokes a thought. Glad this was included in Kindle Unlimited
