  • Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don't

    Why do only a few people get to say "I love my job?" It seems unfair that finding fulfillment at work is like winning a lottery; that only a few lucky ones get to feel valued by their organizations, to feel like they belong. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things.

    Story

    Simon Sinek has the uncommon ability to weave narrative and distill complex arguments in a way that is engaging and thought provoking.

    Even if you don't agree with everything he says you have to concede that he has a valid point.

    Leaving behind a world on the brink of destruction, man came to the red planet and found the Martians waiting, dreamlike. Seeking the promise of a new beginning, man brought with him his oldest fears and his deepest desires. Man conquered Mars - and in that instant, Mars conquered him. The strange new world with its ancient, dying race and vast, red-gold deserts cast a spell on him, settled into his dreams, and changed him forever.

    David says: "The ghosts of Mars and Bradbury"

    Story
    Which scene was your favorite?

    "There Will Come Soft Rains" is a classic story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    Great bit of Sci-fi. Bradbury is a master craftsman weaving together multiple narratives into one whole picture of the planet mars.
