While the theme is one to embrace, additional examples could have been utilized to broaden the listener's understanding of the why.
Solid production overall. Well worth your time.
What the author speaks about isn't something new he's created, but rather discovered through careful observation. I love insights in to underlined truths and this book covers one that is strikingly remarkable. If you are interested in being successful in the startup or transformation of your business, then this is a must read/listen.
I took away some good points from this book but I kept finding myself bored or falling asleep. Seemed repetitive, I just think the writing style isn't what I prefer.
My name's Barnsley!
Such a great book & a great listen. Highly recommend the audio but it makes it hard to go back & reference. I can't remember why I marked all those spots wo notes to myself. Oh well--I'll just listen again!
Before choosing this book I thought I know the general concept of the book. Sure I did. But now I know that the general concept was not enough to help me to take actions and implement it in my life.
This book changed how I see things and businesses and it has given me a new direction in my business and I have already started implementing them. This book is exactly what I needed.
If you have a business or you are going to start a business, this book is a must read.
The only downside of the book is that it repeats the central concept over and over again. Maybe it is intentional to make an impression to the reader so people will take action?
Why do seemingly postioned business fair so differently? Simon Sinek has very believable answer. If a business leader has a strong and true "Why" it is clearly communicated to attract like minded employees and then customers, a combination that is hard beat.
Wonderful principle that is often not understood, applied or answered. BUT, got sense of tedious repetition of same case studies with limited additional depth, insight or perspective in each round of repetition. Would be better if it had more tools to enable people and organizations implement the WHY across the board. Had to listen @ 2X speed given brutally slow speed in narration.
Remembering why we do things is so important in business! This book reminds us of that and inspires leaders to lead with why.
