    Story

    Ed Catmull? Done! I bought this book within 2 seconds of seeing the title. I'm nearly done with the book. Really fun to get the pixar story from Catmull's side. (a major inventor of 3D graphics technology since the 70's) It reminds me of listening to The Woz autobiography: there's parallels (Both were tech partners with Steve Jobs). I've read many books that get into the pixar story, and I have my own personal history with the people from this company and era(s). Enjoying this perspective on company building, team leadership, balancing people and constraints, unique aspects of creative teams, amazing stories, and much more.

    Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever, all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation - into the meetings, postmortems, and "Braintrust" sessions where some of the most successful films in history are made. It is, at heart, a book about how to build a creative culture - but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, "an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible."

John's greatest hits:
  • Influencer: The Power to Change Anything

    "Interesting, but ..."

    Overall

    Some really interesting content, but the way the stories are continually interwoven through the story is a bit repetitive. It could have covered the same ground in half the time. Narrator was not my favorite, but your mileage may vary ...

  • The Magic of Thinking Big

    "Timeless Lessons in a Compact Package"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is not a new book itself and there is not a lot new in the book that wasn't covered over 70 years ago by Dale Carnegie and Napoleon Hill. BUT, this book puts it all together in a very concise and actionable package. The performance of the book is interesting, with alternative narrators cutting in to tell stories to give examples. Overall, I found this to be an extremely useful and actionable book. I wish I had read it when it originally came out, but, as Schwartz points out, it is never too late to put the principles into action!

  • The Steve Jobs Way: iLeadership for a New Generation

    "Good Read"

    Overall

    This was a very good book that provides an intimate look at Steve Jobs. The book uses Jobs' approaches to problem solving as examples of business leadership. Largely, I think the book succeeds. It is a bit fawning (to be expected) and the author promotes himself at times (not surprising). The book moves along and is not repetitive. Quite enjoyable.

  • Inside Apple: How America's Most Admired - and Secretive - Company Really Works

    "Solid Reporting"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Lashinsky does a nice, balanced job of reporting on Apple. Of course, the problem is that Apple is so secretive that it is really difficult to get "inside." I'm not sure there is a lot that is new here, but it is very well-packaged. The book is very timely and contains a lot of material about the transition from the Steve Jobs era. Having listened to the book, I have a lot less faith that Apple will be able to make the transition in the long run.

  • "Informative Book on Job Interviewing!"

    2 of 2 helpful votes
    What did you love best about When Can You Start? 2014?

    "When Can You Start" is my favorite book when it comes to job search help and job interviewing and self-help. It made me a better job candidate.


    What other book might you compare When Can You Start? 2014 to and why?

    This audiobook has advice presented in a practical, organized and entertaining way. The chapters are not too long so it’s just right for communing. And the author has a sense of humor which helped a lot.


    What about Todd Ethridge’s performance did you like?

    The reader has clear speech and a friendly voice. I’ve heard him read before and he is easy to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The job interview is an important moment and it is possible to get good at it. I especially like the explanation of how to answer questions about weaknesses and mistakes.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend When Can You Start. It deserves the attention of an individual who wants to get better at the job search.

    The job interview in your job search. It is the make-or-break moment that can change your life forever. Job interviews present the key step in the job search process and help you get hired. Yet few people know how to prepare for this all-important step while job hunting. As president of Shimmering Resumes and former head of corporate communications for McKinsey & Company, Paul Freiberger knows what it takes to give a knock-their-socks-off interview and win the job.

By twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and working a mediocre day job she’d taken for the health insurance. It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees.

    Alignment is the single most critical business challenge for any organization and its leaders. Without it, inefficiency, conflict, and disengagement will cripple your ability to provide value to your customers. Companies live or die based on their ability to communicate and deliver on the promise their brand makes to its customers. To do this effectively, leaders need to clearly define the vision and strategies that support that brand intention and ensure these are manifested in the roles, expectations, and goals of each and every member of the organization.
