It has the advantage of being read by the author and his passion for the topic and the personal anecdotes ring true. Only issue is that the diagrams would be handy. Why not upsell me a printed copy for a couple of bucks?
Have not read others.
It gave me an "aha" moment - very important right now as I start up a new business.
Again, upsell me a printed/kindle version that I can use as a field text.
Really great information that (along with Daniel Pink's "Drive") that get to the core of human nature....Informative, well researched, and helpful for all aspects of your life: work, family, friends, and especially for yourself!
This is one of those great read books. I read a lot of books and I am NOT one that reads a book then everyone in the company feels the effects. I'm a continuous improvement minded guy, I always try to pull something out of each book that allows me to improve upon myself or the companies overall performance. I read this book and found myself writing a "Why" statement for my company...which just happened to aid in some CAB (Customer Advisory Board) initiatives we were working on. This book did a great job getting you into the right mindset to look at "Why" you do what you do...get to the core purpose which creates a strong foundation...a foundation that everything stems from. I would highly recommends this book to anyone running their own company, branch, division, etc...
Yes, I plan on listening to this book again. Several chapters in this book that I want to review and implement.
No, this book requires daily reading.
Great book for understanding your own personal belief system and uncovering your own personal why.
I listen to learn... I learn to achieve!
An amazing listen for those looking for an insight into figuring the reason for their existence at home and at work. Why am I doing this? Why did a company do what they did, the way they did it and succeed?
Simon did a great job in both writing and narrating his book on the 'sense of why' and how it is the heart of the golden circle!
I have been promoting the message in this book and the author's TED Talks. People do buy into Why you do something (or they don't), but they never buy what you do alone.
You want to do business with people who are willing to hear and share your why, so START WITH WHY!
He uses simple concepts and case studies that are proven.
It made me open up my eyes, it is so simple, we all know it, yet we have lost some of it in this fast paced impersonal world.
Really enjoyed this book, it has a simple message with some very inspiring examples. Something we all can learn from.
A simple concept, a good listen. However, the key message is DRILLED into you a bit too much. You can get the same basic message message by goggling the author on the internet.
Simon Sinek does seminars as well, they last about an hour. And that's how long this book should have been. Instead, he re-hashes the same material over and over again. And over again. Some of his examples don't even seem to prove his point. They are a bit of a stretch. Not recommended. You can find one of his videos on YouTube. Listen to that for free, and you don't need to buy this book.
This was interesting, but for a book that has basically 1 point, it was way too long... Also, the idea of
Yes. See above
