This book is written around a great principle: Start with Why. The problem is after the first chapter or two the whole book tend s to sound the same with the same examples being stated over and over and over and over again.
No need to waste your time with this book. You can easily just search online for Simon Sinek and watch his TedTalk and get the gist of this book in 18 minutes -and save your self 7 hours.
Too much of the same stuff repeated over and over.
Read faster. I had to play it at twice speed to get through it.
To build your sales and marketing message around why you do what you do instead of just what you do.
Thou Shall Prosper may sound like a religious book, but it's not. It's a book about value - your value in the market place.Once you get past the title and the fact that this book was written by a Rabbi, you'll see how the principles and ideas he talks about can help you do more with money. You'll see money differently.You'll also begin to see wealth and prosperity not as evil but as an ultimate benchmark of the good you are offering to the world. Despite the subtitle, this book is less about how to make money and more about how people - including you - view money. Get your views and beliefs about money right and the how to make it will take care of itself.
This book is a classic. There's a reason it's sold 25 million copies.
In the introduction Mr. Covey talks about how these habits will become more applicable as the world gets busier and busier. He wrote that 20+ years ago. And indeed since I last read this book more than a decade ago, I 'd have to agree.
Yes, I would listen to this book again... and again... and again. It contains the fundamental ideas that practically guarantee you many fruitful and profitable relationships for years to come.
I used the Audible app for my iPhone and listened at 3X speed. It was fast but after about 5 minutes, I found it was quite easy to take in at that speed. I was able to listen to the entire book in just 4 sessions at the gym. Also, I found the book marking feature of the app very useful for capturing ideas and taking notes.
