Yes! If you like the markets, you can pick up some things. However, be aware that the majority of the book is about drug/alcohol addiction.
Yes. See comments above.
Add more content on his career and how people can learn. More substance not substance abuse.
An in-depth look at the history of Pixar, Steve Jobs, and it's acquisition by Disney. The author takes you through Pixar's humble beginnings, the impact Steve Jobs had on the firm when he bought it and took it public, the various ways that they created a culture of excellence and creativity. It's interesting to hear how they created Toy Story, Ratitue(sp), Finding Nemo, etc. If you love creativity and entertainment it will open your mind. The author takes you through the many steps involved in the creative process of writing a script. One thing that stood out to me was the finding that 1st graders are more creative than 5th graders. That is a telling finding. The book will help anyone as it teaches you about how to live a more creative life.
Just wasn't that interesting. I think that it would have been much more beneficial if he focused on financing for start-ups and growing ventures. Going more into depth on VCs, the process, best practices, ways we can learn as potential entrepreneurs, etc.
In-depth look at the psychological make-up and motivation of Bezos. Also great look at the founding and growth of Amazon.com. Takes you through so many of their successes and failures through acquisitions and innovations. Realistic view of the culture that Bezos has created and the type of person who excels at Amazon. At times, a little too technical for non-engineers like me, but still worth the read.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Listed to it over two days. At first I thought that Greg Smith's accent was going to bug me, but I think he was the right person to read the book as his passion came through at different points. I found the story fascinating coming from a kid in South America, to getting a scholarship to attend Stanford (Which he would not have had enough money to attend), to an internship with Goldman Sachs, to a job with GS and his ups and downs throughout his career on WS (thoughout the financial crisis). For those of you into finance and investments this is a must read. He gives you a real world perspective on what goes on in these big banks and not always good. He also appeared on 60 minutes about the content in the book as well.
Brad is Superman coming to the rescue of the little guy.
Clear strong voice.
Towards the end when he was talking about how Goldman Sachs got on Board.
