There are some good ideas here, but the author bases a lot of his premises on assumptions that his opinion or personal experience are universally true. So you have to skip those parts and just get to the suggested practices. I would've liked to be able to recommend this to co-workers, but I likely won't. It's just too hit and miss.
One of the best books for personal development. Encourages a reflective approach to analyzing our strengths but more importantly our weaknesses. Self-assessment and taking responsibility for our own actions are keys to improvement.
Must read for managers, executives and anyone seeking those positions. Also recommend this book to those seeking to identify the problems with their executive superiors.
Great take away's
Worth the time
Sophomore level leadership book. Most entry level leaders Accel from shear determination to succeed. Something happens at the next level, and this book will help you identify what's holding you back.
Excellent breakdown of the shortfalls of a strong leader. Reminds me of the "rinsing the cottage cheese" from good to great. This book helps even the most dynamic leader find ways to improve themselves.

This book is all about examining yourself so that you can be a better person and influence positive change in those around you. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has achieved a level of success and may have become stagnant - this book may very well be your answer as to why.
A must read for anyone who would like to change his / her negative habits and improve him self. Book gives a clear guidelines for achieving behavioural change.
I wish the author practiced what he preached. Seems that he's very proud of his past - and he should be as it is amazing. However if you're telling me that what got me here won't get me there - you can't use your past yourself. Especially distant past.
