I bought this book knowing I'm a little quirky and enjoy challenging my way of thinking and working. I never expected this to be so interesting to listen too!

For me, this is one of those books I know I'll listen to over and over and recommend to friends.

After listening to the book a couple of times:
1. I started listening to different music while I work (Mozart) as Da Vinci did.
2. I have been keeping a notepad with me to write all thoughts, complete or incomplete in, and I'm already really valuing it highly.
3. I have started mind-mapping again.
4. Taken time out of my day to be more mindful and aware of my surrounding
5. Seeing the connections between much of God's wonderful nature and other things pertaining to life.

It won't change your life dramatically but for me it has definitely helped to set it on a healthy and richer course.

"Years ago, I wrote about a retail store in the Palo Alto environs—a good one, which had a box of two-cent candies at the checkout. I subsequently remember that 'little' parting gesture of the two-cent candy as a symbol of all that is Excellent at that store. Dozens of people who have attended seminars of mine have come up to remind me, sometimes 15 or 20 years later, of “the two-cent candy story,” and to tell me how it had a sizable impact on how they did business."

Loved this Audio Book.

It's so meaty and full of great wisdom for business and life that I find myself just picking random spots to listen from.

Tom's reading of it is great. His passion for 'getting it done' and 'doing it EXCELLENT' shines through. Totally recommended.
