Being a young, male manager (20's) in a heavy industry manufacturing role, I haven't had much experience with women in the workplace. This book completely rebuilt my foundation of what women have to go through, the struggle of behaving both as a lady "should" and how a good manager "should", the internal battles of being a mother and a hard working employee, etc. Every chapter brought new insights into how I myself and other managers could make the workplace less of a headache and more of a welcoming, understanding environment for women - starting with making sure that they always have a "seat at the table". I have given this book out to several friends who wish to pursue a career in upper management -but I highly recommend to everyone in any field.

After reading several other books on the spiritual path, I was still confused of how to tie the ideas of enlightenment, equanimity, flow, self, ego, and mindfulness together. This book helped to connect those ideas in my mind. A fantastic read - the author is articulate and quite funny at times, his accent making it feel like the old village guru has granted you a 9 hour audience to discuss the nature of being.

Fantastic points + lots of fluff

The first two, and last two chapters of this book are awesome. The author makes some great points on some old ideas that I had never heard put in that manner. But the body of the book is repetitive fluff. Could have been a lot shorter, but still worth at least 1 read!

The franchising/business system concept isn’t new, but the author reinvents the wheel well. Unfortunately he drags it out.. could’ve been several hours shorter

I work in heavy industry, and have recommended this book to all of my employees. Safety can never be passed up for production or budgetary reasons, and this book provides a plethora of reasons why. Incredible and important book.

Incredible collection of clinical studies on the “ugly truth” - animal-based diets are not what we think.

Written from the perspective of a friend - “Becoming Steve Jobs” shows Jobs as an incredible business man, a disruptive rebel, and most importantly, a human being. Great read.

Although it covers a very wide range of interesting situations, this book is not about performance improvement. It is more of a “being a doctor is hard, and I can prove it”. If detailed stories of the hardships doctors experience interests you, this is a must read. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
