So many business and success books focus just on performance, and hard, quantifiable evidence and business related performance. These books often leave out the fact or ignore the reality that people are a part of the lives of other people. This book expertly addresses both sides of success.
For those of us who constantly struggle with how to allocate our time within our businesses, family and social lives; this book is a great guide to help us identify what we truly want to achieve in this life and lists steps on how to get there.
Undoubtedly, A lot of heartache and misdeeds could have been avoided had people read this book and followed its precepts. Thank you for taking the time to write it!
The book was an okay read. I heard so many good things about it and it was recommended to me by multiple people. I think I was expecting a lot more from the book then what was actually in it. The last chapter is the best and was what I thought the book would be more about. The rest was kind of boring and not very helpful.
I was quite baffled when he tried to explain that the current unemployment rate today among young adults could be attributed to us parents outsourcing more chores at home and thus not teaching our kids the true value of working hard. Is that how he would explain the great depression? I cannot recommend this book at all.
My husband and I listen together and it strengthened our relationship and family. A must read.
Christensen is a Harvard business professor--not the usual intro for a book on values and wisdom and even faith. But he managed to use business models (which he explains well and have some cool insights all by themselves) to discuss how to live a wiser, healthier life.
Well written, coming from his heart, this is a good read for all humans--not just business people.
Insightful, motivational and honest. I listened twice and sent it to my children. Pertinent examples. Thanks for tools and skills
