May be I was looking for the wrong thing, but I was waiting for some insights and lessons fro the guy who started this sensational business, didn't find any though!
Just get it!!! This is a wonderful book! Inspiring, Educative, Funny at certain points! I am Tom's fan too. Thank you Blake!!!
Traveler. Artist. Dreamer.
This is the story of how TOMS (the shoe company with a purpose) got its start and how it is run. Truly an interesting story with some examples of how other companies with a purpose got started. This is not a how to guide, rather, it is Blake's story. The narration was not the best. I was just being read, without feeling or emotion (think back to reading aloud in school). Which was kind of a bummer for an inspiring book.
I learned so much and was deeply inspired by the story
That doing good can still be a good business model
The fact that encourages you to not give up and to help others
Do something that matters and give back.
I purchased this book after reading some other reviews. I was not disappointed at all! In fact, I have listened to it twice now. Blake's story made me want to go out and do
This was the first time I listened to anything by Blake.

Blake Mycoskie relates his own story of TOMS Shoes (based in Santa Monica). The idea behind his company is: you buy a pair of shoes and a new pair will be donated to a child in need of shoes. What I hold through is the art of his storytelling: he has been capable to deliver the power to his customers to spread his message.
However I think that out of the 5 hours of listening, only the half got my attention 'cause the rest was not especially linked to his story- like business cases you've already heard a thousand times before. Despite this, Blake is passionate, down to earth and he never gives up so only for this, he deserves to be listened to at least once.
I could not stop listening ! Thank you Blake for letting us know your story !
