    You believe in a good idea. You know it could make a crucial difference for you, your organization, your community. You present it, hoping for enthusiastic support. Instead, you get confounding questions, inane comments, and verbal bullets. Before you know what’s hit you, your idea is dead, shot down. It doesn’t have to be this way, say John Kotter and Lorne Whitehead. In Buy-In, they reveal how to protect good ideas and win the support needed to deliver valuable results.

    Story

    Good read. Used an effective, detailed story/example for the first half of the book to relay the concepts, then took the principles one by one and discussed them in further detail. Great book for those who present ideas to large or small groups and want to know how to effectively prepare a defense so your ideas aren't shot down by petty arguments.

    In this, his first audiobook, Tony Hsieh - the widely admired CEO of Zappos, the online shoe retailer -explains how he created a unique culture and commitment to service that aims to improve the lives of its employees, customers, vendors, and backers. Using anecdotes and stories from his own life experiences, and from other companies, Hsieh provides concrete ways that companies can achieve unprecedented success.

    Story

    This was a great book about the importance of a strong company culture and customer service. The book also shared multiple experiences relating to Tony's start-ups and had many entrepreneurial takeaways. I enjoyed listening to the actual author of the book tell the stories and thought Tony did a great job narrating. It felt like I was having a conversation with Tony, not just listening to a book.
