To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I gave this book 2 stars (I have several other journals in the series, and the others are 5-Stars). But this one is very cluttered without a proper learning structure.
If one of the objectives (for any book) is for the reader to walk away with new knowledge and techniques to apply it, I would say this is a pass for these reasons:
1. Way too confusing. Instead of covering a few topics well, this book has a blend of several different topics with a poor explanation of what, when, where, how to apply it.
2. Content is mostly rehashed from other journals in the series. And because those are more focused, I find them more valuable. I understand the costs increase, but they’re on point because they do a better job of explaining the topic - and therefore, are more effective as a book.
Huge fan of the other journals in the series, because they give non-specialists a broad toolkit to succeeding in any organization (financial analysis, project management, strategic thinking, project updates, status reports, tree, etc.).
But this one is too cluttered. It’s like an encyclopedia crammed into a dictionary and lacking the structure to make sense of it.
