Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

I saw Simon's presentation on TED, and I think that the idea of Starting with Why is really good and important, but the book is too long and sometimes repetitive. The TED talk has it all.
