    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it to all my friends who are contemplating the direction their career could take, but are unsure about which direction to go.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Start with Why?

    One of the big (only) takeaways for me was the simple thought of discovering my own "why", and using that as a reference point in career decisions. I've thought about this in terms of goals and passions before. But something about "discovering your own why" really resonated with me.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has some great concepts, but it feels like 20 minutes of good material crammed into 7 hours of audio book. I found the repeated example of Apple as a company that starts with why to be overkill. (Admittedly, my personal bias against Apple, and my disdain for the smug, pretentious Apple faithful probably clouds my judgement.)

    While I understand why Mr. Sinek dives into the connection between his theory and recent discoveries in neuroscience, it distracts from the content a bit for my taste.

    When I started listening last week, I wasn't necessarily looking for any insights into my career, nor was I hopeful this book would help in any real way. This was just another book to listen to while I walked my dog in the morning. It ended up being time well spent, and I found myself listening to some of the chapters a couple times to get the main points.

    Overall this has some good content, but could be reduced down to 30-40 minutes and achieve the same impact.
