recommended for anyone who cares about the value of the work they do as well as the value of what they do in their personal life as well.
The concept hits to the very core of what how our brains are structured to operate and that alone justifies so much of what Sinek discusses.
I did feel the book itself could have been shortened some. I felt at some point it was beating the drum a bit too much and took a bit away from the inspirational elements of the book.
This book is about mindset of business leaders and organizations. They ask the why question and act in line with their beliefs and values. They have vision and a sense of mission in what they're doing. I enjoyed learning about successful companies such as Apple, Walmart, McDonald's. Individuals such as the Wright brothers and Martin Luther King Jr.
After developing his the "Why" Simon Sinek moves on to the "How" and the "What". He also talks about innovation, inspiration, and creativity.
I had the pleasure of hearing Simon Sinek in person at Live2Lead. His message is bigger than he is which I think is part of his why. why we should start with why and inspire others to do the same. Thank you Simon, you've changed yet another soul on a mission to achieve and dream big!!!
I like all the talk about the brain's inner workings, but this book overlooks some serious reasons why things succeed. It is a disservice to simplify things this way and I had to give up half way thru when I keep interjecting mentally, "yeah, but that's totally not true..."
The book certainly has great points and shifting minds from what to why in your causes. But, it has time wasting pages and they are quite many.
More real life stories.
Make it sound more authentic.
I liked very much the idea of competing against yourself and no one else!This is so profound an advice.What I didn't like that often the logic flow in the book gets derailed by talking non substantial things.
Anyone, but mostly entrepreneurs and initiators of new endeavors.
While I rated the book 3 star, it is worth of reading.
I have found this to be my favorite book because it inspires me every time I read it. Good books inspire us to do more, this one inspires me to be more. I love what I do and I know why I do what I do, but this books helps me deepen my resolve and my direction to help others be more. I have shared this book with a number of people and will continue to share this and continue to read this book.Thank you Simon for your insight and ability to put into words what inspires you and how it can help me and others inspire and become more inspiring.
Yes.I found it to be a wonderful perspective and insight into very exceptional successes
Very easy to listen to
