I like the book it just makes you think a little bit out of the box, it has some good ideas, others are just ideas that you ale arcs know debated in a interesting way. I recommend it for someone starting or for someone who lost his/her way and want some confidence. Good luck and try to enjoy it with an open mind.

On March 8, 1421, the largest fleet the world had ever seen set sail from China. Its mission was to "proceed all the way to the ends of the earth to collect tribute from the barbarians beyond the seas" and unite the whole world in Confucian harmony. When it returned in October 1423, the emperor had fallen, leaving China in political and economic chaos. The great ships were left to rot at their moorings and the records of their journeys were destroyed. Lost in China's long isolation that followed was the knowledge that Chinese ships had reached America 70 years before Columbus.

Koch shows how to maximize success in your career and life by using the proven principle that 80 percent of changes in the world result from the most powerful 20 percent of actions and ideas. He'll show how to use your own powerful "20 percent spike" - your most creative ideas and unique skills - to measure the amount of value you bring to your employer, clients, or customers. For most people, there is a huge disparity between their intrinsic value and the compensation they receive for their efforts.

It is a very interesting book with lots of philosophical ideas, in my opinion it is one of the books that clearly describes the difference between the inner and outer self. I will definitely revisit the book once again to capture more ideas.
