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!

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.

Listen to that for free, and you don't need to buy this book.

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.

Yes... Apple Apple and Apple

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.
