Simon did a great job of narrative the book. There were some worth while concepts and ideas in the book. However, the repetitive nature made me keep hoping for the end. Watch the Ted talk and save yourself the time.
Simons Sineks simple yet complex idea of the golden circle it the solution to the current issues face in the United States and beyond. Just one example would be how starting with "why" would solve so many issues people have with police. This would be so helpful in setting a tone in recruitment and retention of good Offciers. I know this book is not about just that, but it applies to all of us. So rarely do we think of why we do what we do. This book maps that out. I can't recommend it enough.
liked the premise, not sure he proved his point, redundant in several places. I liked how he explained the shift companies make as they move from focused on the why to focus on the how. I also like the idea of the Visionary leader focused on the why with support focused on the how
The writer who was the performer talked down to the listener with poorly defined half-baked rehash of ideas common in most business leader books. Cherry picking anectdotes as evidence that everyone is stupid but you because they didn't start with "WHY." I could not finish because it was nauseating me.
The performer was so enthused that he sparkled like someone trying to empress children with ghost stories.
I do NOT recommend.
Depressing at first because I realized as an entrepreneur I knew I had to go back and reevaluate my business. Then I turned it around to a happy change for a better future. Very inspirational book.
