No substance.

I kept reading hoping for some insight to start coming out, but it was just storytelling. If I needed folk stories I'd read "one thousand and one nights" not a literature that claims to be a business management guide providing "analysis" of effective collaboration. I wanted to put it down when it dived into description of how sexy it is to work for team that has no life or time for own children. Some reviews said it had a good last chapter. I do t agree that's the case. It is a waste of time, I wouldn't bother with this book.

best book I could have read right now

at this point in my career as an entrepreneur and a filmmaker there is not a single other book that I could have read, that would have had the impact that this book had on me.
