    In keeping with the parable style, Patrick Lencioni begins by telling the fable of a woman who, as CEO of a struggling Silicon Valley firm, took control of a dysfunctional executive committee and helped its members succeed as a team. Story time over, Lencioni offers explicit instructions for overcoming the human behavioral tendencies that he says corrupt teams. Succinct yet sympathetic, this guide will be a boon for those struggling with the inherent difficulties of leading a group.

    "Best book I've heard from audible!"
    Overall

    Great business 'fiction'. Useful / applicable lessons. Terrific narration. This one has it all. I plan to listen to it again soon to help the lessons sink in. The book is fun and easy to listen to. The principles aren't revolutionary, but I count the time well-spent.

    "Habits aren't"
    Overall

    I appreciate the author's good intentions, but this book didn't turn out to be what I hoped it might be. The first 47 minutes of the reading are dedicated to trying to motivate men who consider themselves to be bad fathers or who had bad fathers themselves. If you consider yourself to be an ok to good Dad, then you can probably skip this section. The last 30 minutes are devoted to the author's religious beliefs. If you get into this section and find it preachy or insulting you can turn off the recording then. There isn't a chapter that follows it. Throughout the reading, the author uses an analogy of a wheel on a car. I thought the analogy was forced and more of a distraction than an aid. Finally, some of the "habits" (such as understanding your significance as a father) aren't habits at all. Overall, I found the book to be a somewhat interesting discussion that in the end didn't leave me with many practical suggestions.
