    True North shows how anyone who follows their internal compass can become an authentic leader. This leadership tour de force is based on research and first-person interviews with 125 of today's top leaders: with some surprising results. In this important audiobook, acclaimed former Medtronic CEO Bill George and coauthor Peter Sims share the wisdom of these outstanding leaders and describe how you can develop as an authentic leader.

    Overall

    This book is founded on the concept of finding out what is important to you, your "True North". Nice leadership concept, but the examples used in the book were limited to CEOs. Not every "leader" is a CEO, in fact most are not. I was very disappointed in this book overall.

    "Fascists", "Brownshirts", "jackbooted stormtroopers" - such are the insults typically hurled at conservatives by their liberal opponents. Calling someone a fascist is the fastest way to shut them up, defining their views as beyond the political pale. But who are the real fascists in our midst?

    Randy says: "Like everything you were taught is a lie."
    "Well constructed case"
    Overall

    This book carefully constructs the author's case that modern liberalism or progressivism is tantamount to modern facism. The historical framework of both Mussolini and Wilson are eerily familiar to things that we are seeing today. The concept of "central planning" and its popularity within the progressive movement is Orwellian in every sense. Excellent, thought provoking book. I will agree with one of the reviewers that the narration is a bit overdone, but the content is worth it.
