The case studies in this book are a fun read, especially in the audio book version which has each person related to the specific case study read their portion. The variety in voices kept the book entertaining.

Where the book lacked was in providing detail. It is very vague and although the case studies were from companies that achieved great growth it doesn't necessarily explain how the OKR's caused the growth. Would My Fitness Pal really not been so successful without an OKR ? Impossible to say from reading this book.

If you are a "techie" and would be interested in hearing case studies from Silicon Valley then you would enjoy this book. If you want details on goal setting and measuring what matters then I recommend finding a different book.
