Most startups don't fail because they can't build a product. Most startups fail because they can't get traction. Startup advice tends to be a lot of platitudes repackaged with new buzzwords, but Traction is something else entirely. As Gabriel Weinberg and Justin Mares learned from their own experiences, building a successful company is hard. For every startup that grows to the point where it can go public or be profitably acquired, hundreds of others sputter and die.

This is a book every business person should have in their arsenal if they're wanting to thrive. I just finished listening and plan to listen again and again—loved it. I was tempted many times to jump in and start doing what was said but decided to listen all the way to the end first—glad I did. Looking forward to following the advice as outlined in this book. There are so many instructions and steps to follow. Thank you!

Many Christians feel guilty when they think of reading the Bible. Though they want to love reading Scripture, they rarely have time for more than a few verses on the run. But the Bible is not meant to be a burden. It is the story of God’s passionate love for His children. It is also not a book of mystical incantations. It is a best friend offering counsel and companionship. And it is not a distant relic, but something very near. Near enough, in fact, to be every reader’s story. So how do Christians delight in this story?

Loved listening to the stories and teachings of the Bible. I felt that there were lots of instances where scripture I've read was made clearer. This is a great teaching companion.

Such a marvelous concept, I loved hearing every story—so much love and adoration was expressed. The stories I heard were inspiring; made me want to record some cherished experiences to share with my kids for when they get older.

Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." That's the offer of Christianity, from God himself.

A definite MUST! It will help you better understand God's Word as it relates to matters of the heart. It's like the glue that brings together all that you read in the scripture — you'll get clarify, biblical perspective and a laser-like focus. Very practical, truthful, and insightful teachings about God's Word.

This three-part book begins with Matt’s story of going from selfish to servant while on his journey from prisoner to monk to social entrepreneur. The book shows leaders the connection between superior long-term results and serving their people and community. Matt Tenney cites numerous business case studies and research that demonstrate how servant leadership results in attracting top talent, increased employee engagement, and lower turnover, as well as a more innovative culture, better customer service, and a better ROI on marketing efforts.

I truly loved listening to this book. Especially since servant leadership is a principle I fully support. Your talk of love being fundamental to having a great business is superb. Very uplifting and encouraging, Matt. A great book! Thank you.
