I picture people nodding off and drooling onto their desks listening to this. If someone were reading this with authority and enthusiasm, it would be brilliant.
I am very happy that this author (Sharma) has passion, but I must warn readers that this book is not inspiring, contains just wrong information and ideas, and doesn't give me any sense that I will learn about the challenge and joy of leadership 10 minutes in. I scanned the rest. One of his ideas is that children all bond and get along when no one is watching them, and that adults don't bond in isolated situations such as being trapped in an elevator...? You get business people in there and we'll figure out a way to make our Southwest flights on time, we're going to cooperate and bond so fast! Poorly engineered on a non-pro set up.
I adore the controversial, feather ruffling, serious efficiency of Don Rumsfeld. He wants what's best for the country - and what WORKS for the modern military. Not the turf-protecting, status-quo maintaining, profligate ($225 million annually to monitor Soviet submarines in Iceland... long after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Took 3 years to authorize the elimiation of the waste!) The obfuscation caused by pointless beauracracy torpidly plodding along in a swiftly shifting contemporary battlefield, he reveals and lays out the hassle of dealing with entrenched D.C, ass-covering self interest. All in addition to inside scuttlebutt on 9/11 and his actions during the attack on the Pentagon. A special pleasure hearing it in his voice.
