The author made use of some very intriguing examples and stories, illustrating the points he was trying to make throughout the book. However, he really beats the dead horse sometimes. He could have probably could have fit the most important stuff into a book half as long without losing much.
I would recommend this book with a warning to prepare for repetition. Sinek's TED talk is about sufficient to get the point across, but the book still is a good tool to dive a little deeper into his theory of the "Golden Circle."
Sinek contributes his passion and energy through his narration. The book could come across as a little boring without his animation.
Inspire to action.
It is a simple topic but often overlooked. I have been implementing some of the suggestions provided by the book and have had great success. The author is correct connecting why your organization exist with what you do on a daily basis is a great for motivation of your employees. It is a great listen for anyone new to management.
"What you believe is what you get."
His passion to his purpose. Book read by author is much more great listen than books read by other narrators.
Very simple concept and probably repeated a little too often but this assisted me in making the change in the way I do things. I have already recommended it to many people
You have to understand this to effectively market, otherwise your just part of the crowd who happens to get it right... or not...
He repeats stuff a lot.
I haven't read the print version, so, I can't say.
I like the thinking behind the idea of "starting with why." It just makes sense, and can actually be incorporated into any aspect of ones life.
It inspired me.
I can has read
Yes. The concepts in this book are useful enough that using them is something that I am actually excited to do while being subtle enough that I'll need an occasional refresher to do them effectively.
The moments in the book didn't interest me. I mean to say that the I found the stories annoying. I'd actually prefer an abridged version that didn't include all the examples.
nasal, intentional, boring
Not really. The big deal was when the concept clicked for me and I realized how much time that I spend working against what excites me.
One of the TOP 5 Books I have ever read
Everything about it was memorable ! The concept of it is just incredible
Star with Why.....Changes everything
Yes, since it was read by the author, and he did a good job. The best part was hearing his own enthusiasm and accentuation on the areas that he found most important.
I think the message can be taken and used in many different ways. Personally, I have been able to think more clearly about what I want in a company culture and how it matches my personal purpose/vision. Before, I couldn't really put it into words why some cultures and brands connected with me better than others. I can now.
