No I don't think he offers any new or enlightening information. He kept saying the same thing over and over.
There was nothing new.
The narrator was fine
I found that after listening to the audio version, I wanted the paper version to quote from.
He has a very easy to follow method of speaking.
No not at all, I feel like it spent too much time harping on apple and it's success.
I do agree that apple is outstanding however, there are other examples of great companies.
How to measure anything
Yes... Apple Apple and Apple
Focus on Purpose
N/A - although it was really awesome that it was read by the author.
Simon Sinek provides a great framework for building a great company around a strong purpose. Sinek shares excellent and memorable case studies in a book that you will want to read more than once.
This book is a game changer for anyone in the marketing industry. It is a fresh and common sense perspective that society has really lost. Yes. I will read again and again to refresh my perspective as well as gain many quotes for use with clients.
This is one of those books you will tell everyone about. It really did change my life as far as how I perceive brands and marketing as well as how I lead with purpose now. I am a Group Creative Director at an ad agency with over 20 years of experience. This book changed my POV forever. It is a must read for all my clients as well.
Get this book!
You can watch his TED presentation and get the entire point of the book (
Simon Sinek's style of speaking grates on me as bursting with smugness
I found the book too long. Would have enjoyed it more if it was shorter and less repetitive.

As others have said... Watch the TED video - its a great concept but can be told in 10 min more effectively. I couldn't get through all 7 hours of it.
I thought this book was completely uninspired. I trudged through because I felt like a fool for spending so much on it. I have researched most of the people he references in the book and I am very confident in saying 9 out of 10 times he missed the mark on these people. They were all great but he completely misses what made them people of substance. This books was a collosal failure try another.
Yes completely turned me off to the genre.
Uninspired at best
I bought it on sale.
This book would not be worth it if you paid me to listen to it. Worst book I have purchased to date.
