It takes a much more optimistic approach than his other books, but it is nonetheless still accurate. I feel that switching the narrator was a good choice to reflect the difference in the overall feel of the book.
I should be giving this at least a 4 star rating for most of the content which is exhaustive biographies of so called masters. What I did not enjoy so much was the authors own interpretation of what made these people great. Without those insights if we left it to the reader/listener to draw their own inference, this would have been a much better book.
Great naration great historical perspective all around great book it can change your life. I recommend it to anyone who is still searching to find their true sense of mastery
It was an account excellent source for discovering the people who changed the world! Now I want to listen to his others.
I'll sum it up for you: don't get stuck in a career that's not your 100% passion, and focus on being expert in one field
Not interesting, not impactful
Sanders is fine
Captivating, Enlightening, Lifechanging
One of those books, you come out a different person after read it
While I may not agree with some of his points, Greene's emphasis on mentoring, attention to details, and consideration of others is well worth your time and consideration.
Greene's historical examples of his approach help reinforce his philosophy of work and make for wonderful anecdotes if you are a manager, career coach, or just interested in improving or deepening or experience of life.
Ben Franklin is such a large presence in our national conscious - very helpful to hear about his struggle to get started in his life's work.
