I liked the overall message of this book. I appreciated the "rise & fall" business stories and comparisons. The explanation of theories in the book were enlightening as well as the religious references.
This book provides insights on not only how to run a successful business, but to succeed in life as an individual and as a member of a family. Christensen seamlessly weaves the business world and our personal lives together. As a business owner and a mother, I found the knowledge contained in this book to be incredibly valuable. I would recommend it to anyone, especially young people embarking on adulthood and their professional lives.
Christensen uses good real world examples. He teaches clearly and in a way I find very easy to understand. This book contains great metrics to measure one's life.
I expected a deep, personal journal, but got more business lessons summarized from some of his other books. The life measure was really saved for the final chapter. Still, I'm a fan of Mr Christiansen and found the book valuable and thoughtful.
The message is very deep and meaningful. For ayone that wants to learn about purpose.
Well written and narrated book. Plenty of eye opening perspectives from family and business relationships. I think everyone should read this book. No matter where you live, what's your background or education.
