I have now listened to Sinek's Start with Why twice, and it keeps getting better. Regis is the way business should be approached in today's market place, from a very practical approach.
I'll keep this short and sweet. This is a fantastic book. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. You can apply the information to any/every part of your life to help you find meaning and purpose.
The only negative thing I can say is that he gets a little repetitive with the examples he uses. Stick with it to the end though. It really is worth it.
This book puts into words so many complex thoughts and concepts that I've never been able to connect in such a clear manner. A must read, or hear in this case...
Anyone that owns or is starting a business should consider this essential reading. The days of running a business like The Donald are over. If you want to do anything extraordinary, you must "start with why".
Sinek's philosophy is moving, important, succinct and....profoundly human. If this philosophy became the norm, it would revolutionize business, and society as we know it.
This book helped me solidify why I want to be in business. I had a good understanding of my "why" if asked, but now I know that "why" is the most important. Start with why" is very inspiring. I highly recommend it.
I was very happy to learn that Simon, the author, was the one that was reading the book. It was great to listen to him as you could clearly tell that he was passionate about what he was saying.
I did however have a few issues with the book. One was that if you've ever seen the Ted Talk video about Simon explaining the Golden Circle, we'll you've pretty much read the book. He does got into a bit further details in the book as he has more time to delve into the subject matter, but the Ted talk is a perfect synopsis of the book. My only other issue with the book is that he repeats himself a few times, so much so that a few times I thought somehow that the audio book went back to a previous chapter.
All in all though, I definitely recommend the book to others as it gave me a different insight into myself and gave me some things that I need to think about for my personal and professional life.
This book is a great book to help you reflect on your mindset. Having had the opportunity to see Simon Sinek speak in person, the book was a good review!
