    "Best business & culture building book I've ever read."

    I've read almost all of the top books written about building teams, scaling out organizations, building culture, etc. (Rockefeller habits, start with why, good to great, etc. ) and this book tops em all by far.

    "Good nuts and bolts system for management."

    I think the system is really good and well laid out. Somewhat repetitive and would probably be more useful with me hard copy of the book. But otherwise enjoyable and useful.

    "getting a grip on your business."

    the book is well thought out and provides all the necessary tools to get started. I can think of many businesses I have worked with in the past that would benefit from such a book.

    "Great content but dry"

    If the content was not so good, I would not have finished. Read like a text book as not much of a story.

    "Solid material"

    Because it is a process driven system the material is dry
    The reader is monotone and this doesn't enliven the content
    The EOS is a commendable system and worth implementing
