Yes, I'll say it: this is one of the most important books I've read (listened to) in my life. I am well into my career of many years. I am 49. I work with executives, and I have friends that are execs, but I am not one. I am sometimes caught in between their squabbles. This book helps me understand my organization infinitely better than I did before. It's phenomenal for work relationships and interactions. It is great at helping you understand where you are in your career and how organizations and teams work best. It so rich. There is so much there,. I just finished Emotional Intelligence and then did this one. I think it is better to do it this way, but I think someone would get as much just doing this book.
One of the best books I've ever read (I mean heard). I've seen Milk several times, as well as the movie The Times of Harvey Milk, but this fills in all the gaps. So much was edited out and squished together to make those excellent movies, but it's here! Shilts' writing is excellent and so is the narrator on this one! I am so glad I bought this.
Wo! Don't read or listen to this unless you are SERIOUS about finding ways to work less and stop wasting time. This guy is serious....and funny!
