Start w/ Why was basically a bunch of conjecture by the author. There was no real evidence to support any of his claims. Sure, his points are all logical and I actually agree with much of what he said, but he used surface level examples and vignette's to draw conclusions that are ultimately common sense. I was hoping for better examples, some data, and some rigor. This felt like an 8th grade paper. Waste of time.
Great case studies. Examples were abundant and served as the backbone of the book. For Marketers, this is a solid read. Now... if only your company could be Apple... why?
Relaxed, pointed, articulate
To get me up to speed quickly I played it back at 1.5x and had no problems understanding it. If you've never tried this feature, just let your brain adjust (it will be a little odd at first) and you will fly through the books. It would have been worth it to spend the entire time on this book but why not hack it?
You know when your boss tells everyone that you must read a book? This was the most recent one for us and it was an excellent choice.
I don't have time to sit down and read, but this works great to listen to on my commute.
I love how Sinek has such a clear vision and practical examples of how to start with why. This book will change the way that you think about the way you think!
No. I am happy to have listened to the material and find the content important and thought provoking.
I found the premise for the content was spun through the book with good examples, but somewhat repetitive.
Now I know why
His passion on the subject.
It gave me that "____" to put my finger on. I haven't changed but I see clearly now. I now understand why I disliked certain jobs, businesses, bosses and clients. It clarified with simplicity my direction and purpose in both my personal and professional lives.
A MUST READ
Love Sci-Fi Fantasy and all things metaphysical.
When my children were growing up I taught them basic questions to ask, What, Where, Who and Why. Why is a question that is always most interesting and yet often most neglected. I you want to refocus your life, get in touch with WHY
Good concept. If you have seen the TED lecture this this book would be a waste of time. I couldn't finish it since it seemed to start repeating about halfway through.
I would probably listen to this once a year. A brilliant reminder & encourager for one to find their why & to life true to it.
If everyone found & lived by their why, the world would be a better place.
Interesting, applicable, relevant
The message. Start with why are you doing what u are doing. It means passion to do something and not just to be there "for the money"; start with why and things will be easier and people will follow.
The message is repetitive. He could have written in half the pages and still be relevant.
What a refreshing change on leadership. One of the few people that seem to teach about the people as opposed to the leader. Great!
