There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I have to deduct 1 star though for a key problem. HBR does not recognize this as a subscription, which means you do not have full access to the HBR.org website, its articles, and archives. This means that you cannot have full access to read more than 15 articles a month (the limit for their "free" accounts), or to search their archives.
While the price is good at (currently) $6 a month, it would be worth paying a little more in order to get that access to the online site along with this subscription. I suppose this is something that Amazon and HBR will have to work out (and I have reported this to both, asking them to address it).
Now for my review. Navigation quirk aside, I'm still giving this five stars. I normally read this on my android phone, and on there the magazine is beautiful, in color, and easy to navigate - if you have an android, I definitely recommend it. The content is unmatched and definitely worth the 6 or so dollars you pay a month.
First is the pervasive consultant-speak: if it sounds like snake oil, it probably is and you're probably being taken for a ride. Your eyes will tire of rolling after the third "The ten critical, life changing principles for yada yada", which can usually be boiled down to a couple of interesting ideas. The magazine itself usually produces one interesting idea for each issue, along with what seems like filler and countless accounts from experts who invariably try to boil down the entire world to their perspective. In the end it's not all that helpful for people actually looking for solutions. The buck needs to stop with those of us who hire consultants and buy publications like HBR: not in plain English, no deal.
A second related problem is the reverential tone with respect to executives, who somehow hold the keys to the universe, until of course you remember so and so sunk the ship, which is very easy to do in the current never ending world recession. From a social or anthropological point of view the HBR is a curious read, a series of articles which seek to affirm your inclusion into a specific group of people; except the world has moved on from the company car, the executive account, the rimless glasses and the Brooks Brothers suits (never mind the Ted Koppel hairdos).
The third is the constant harassing to buy more HBR related products like cases (nope, not included in the subscription), books and suchlike: it's almost as if you're paying to be bombarded with offers. Somewhere in its bowels there's bound to be an article called "ten ways to stop annoying your customers", which they themselves haven't read.
I would request / urge / plead the HBR folks to:
- remove all user/ reader reviews from the initial pages ! It's a huge distraction !
- To look at ways and means to improve the look and feel of the subscription on the Kindle. It's 6 dollar an issue and the kindle copy shouldn't be any less than the physical copy for an easy read.
