Radical Candor is the sweet spot between managers who are obnoxiously aggressive on the one side and ruinously empathetic on the other. It is about providing guidance, which involves a mix of praise as well as criticism - delivered to produce better results and help employees develop their skills and boundaries of success. Great bosses have strong relationships with their employees, and Scott has identified three simple principles for building better relationships with your employees.

It was a good book. Boils down the concepts and gives you a walk around the topics all great managers should know about. A recommended read. For me, for example, managertools.,Com book covered about the same but in more easy to implement ways.

Most startups fail. But many of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach being adopted across the globe, changing the way companies are built and new products are launched.

After reading and listening to lots of books in regards to lots of different work related topics. This is by far the most interesting and inspiring for me. It has lots of strategy in how to make the best business decisions. How to build agile business driven teams with the best value driven insights framework.
If you read these lines wondering if you should buy the book? Don't think. Just buy it. You won't regret it.

Sancia Grado is a thief, and a damn good one. And her latest target, a heavily guarded warehouse on Tevanne’s docks, is nothing her unique abilities can’t handle. But unbeknownst to her, Sancia’s been sent to steal an artifact of unimaginable power, an object that could revolutionize the magical technology known as scriving. The Merchant Houses who control this magic - the art of using coded commands to imbue everyday objects with sentience - have already used it to transform Tevanne into a vast, remorseless capitalist machine.

After reading a couple of reviews of this book
I jumped on the bandwagon.
It's a great read and eye opening if you have not delved into this type of ideas before.

Just read it. It's funny and witty with great pointers.

A PMO creates value when, and only when, it enables educated, fact-based decisions regarding resource allocation across projects, programs, and portfolios. If, subsequent to one year of inception, the PMO cannot provide an up-to-date, accurate view of resource allocation, then it has failed in the single most important role that a PMO has in the organization.

Started okay then it dropped like from a cliff.
It related to other concepts like critical chain and safe(read those instead. They are much better books and concepts).
The book added very little in it self, and the narrator when going through what sounded like mathematical calculation really lost any charm.
