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.
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.
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).
Moving to digital form it seemed as if magazines only came in one of two forms - text only or full page layout. Text only removed the benefits of layout in the presentation. Full page layout was difficult to read at times, even zoomed - as full length colums require scrolling up and down without any side movement.
With the February 2012 issue of HBR Amazon is offering both views. You can now flip through the full page layout. Scanning and zooming in to find an article you would like then switch to text view if you need to adjust text size for comfortable reading. Furthermore the table of contents makes for quick navigation.
I still wish I could highlight and take notes though. Maybe soon.
That said, it's maybe the best management magazine around. There are always insightful articles by top management gurus. It's a pity however that so much of the contents are focused in big business and so little in small and medium companies management. But that doesn't change the quality of its contents.
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).Read more ›
