I would put in fewer stories! The author tries to follow the Malcolm Gladwell approach of presenting research then a real life example of that research in action, but the implementation of this technique is done poorly and too often.
I loved what Mallow had to say about Steve Martin in this book and I wish he would have dug deeper into that aspect.
I found the premise wonderful, become so good at what you do that you stand out, but a lot of the practical advise was really depressing and uninspiring.
I wasn't a fan of basketball prior to listening to this book, but the passion displayed and technical aspects made simple made me start to enjoy the game. There are a lot of leadership gems in here as well.
He does get off topic with weird NCAA rule changes, but it's not enough to not read the book
A good overview but I would love a fuller picture of the traits he is talking about and action steps to grow them in my own life
Simple and easy topic but I feel that this is a part of a greater system, not one in and of itself
Nothing ground breaking as far as leadership and self development go, but well packaged and inspiring. I liked the incorporation of faith and scripture - I don't think there are enough good leadership books that do that.
I listened to it once, then turned around and listened to it again the next day. There are a lot of good stories that act as fables to get points across, and while some have said they come off as "self serving" the authors self deprecating comments ensure that they are meant to get a point across not inflate his ego
Thought there was a general thrust that it's never too late to start on a journey or on a passion there are a lot of practical take aways in each section
He's got a great way of delivering content, slightly sarcastic but inspiring when needed
Yes, there's a lot of goo information Hyatt points out that is very useful in building your presence in the on-line world. Some of it is basic, but most of us don't do it, and some of it is knew and we should start doing it.
Hyatt is good at making things practical and putting things into a useful context
There are too many on-line gurus around these days, and Hyatt's book helps those who actually know what they're doing stand out from the charlatans.
It's midline as far as quality, not the best listen but not the worst. Great energy from the speaker
I would have liked to hear the whole seminar
Energy! His voice is contagious, kind of corny but if you let yourself get into his reading it's great mindset work
Has some good concepts, though repetitive with the examples used. I think a mediocre sales person would get a lot out of this book, while a sales person with a high conversion rate would only be able to get a few nuggets. As far as value to the entrepreneur, I see very little.
The narrator isn't very skilled.
I've listened to this twice already, I'm thinking about a third, even with books like "Confessions," and "The Karamazov Brothers" in my queue. Not only is this book about running, it's a thoughtful look into our past as a people. McDougall interlaces his story with history so well that it's almost seamless. The narration is also spot on, pleasant to listen to and a good pronunciation of Spanish. Overall one of my top 10 books
