Useful and visionary
It's so nice to be able to get a glimpse into what makes Musk and his companies succeed while we are witnessing it unfold. We could all use a bit more of what he represents.

Be human first, a manager second

Fabulous. Refreshingly different. Impactful.
This is easily the most impactful business book I "read" last year (and I read quite a few). It helped me gain understanding and insight into my own motives, belief systems and values. These insights have already had a dramatic (and positive) impact on my personal and professional life. I'm having my entire team read it.
And I love the fact that Stan Slap narrates this himself. You can sense his passion and conviction in every word. Includes well-selected, real-world examples that help reinforce the principles. Also, the deeply personal and relevant stories shed light on the author's background and perspectives (which I appreciated). Time very well spend indeed. High five for Slap!
