From the Inside Flap:

The BookcassetteŽ format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.

About the Author:

Robert Townsend, Author, is also the Author of the business blockbuster book, Up the Organization. Townsend was the CEO, who selected the "We're only number two... so We Try Harder" advertising campaign... which helped propell AVIS to a profitable and significant player in the Rent-A-Car market after 13 years of losses prior to his arrival on the scene.
