    "I'm a believer"

    A little skeptical at first but the more I read and listened the more convinced I became. I am now a student of Traction and will continue to learn and grow!

    "Best business & culture building book I've ever read."

    I've read almost all of the top books written about building teams, scaling out organizations, building culture, etc. (Rockefeller habits, start with why, good to great, etc. ) and this book tops em all by far.

    "Good nuts and bolts system for management."

    I think the system is really good and well laid out. Somewhat repetitive and would probably be more useful with me hard copy of the book. But otherwise enjoyable and useful.

    "MUST READ book for any organization!"
    Where does Traction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    When it comes to systemizing your business and implementing accountability programs, this is THE book to read up on.


    What other book might you compare Traction to and why?

    The E-Myth, Built To Sell, and Work The System.. All books are aimed to structure any company to become more effective and impactful


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Mostly when it was covering the accountability systems to keep everyone on track and held accountable


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously, regardless if your company/organization is small or big, this will help you take control of everything and have a clearer path to success

    "dense read, on business leadership framework"

    Covers a lot of the same material as rocket fuel with less focus on the integrator and more focus on the Entrepreneurial Operating System or EOS

    "Great to read if at a company that doesn't do this"

    I work at a company that doesn't work these through with everyone, so no one on the same page and everyone going in different directions. this book has strong core processes that can be beneficial for most companies. I also have the book which is very helpful.

    "Fantastic!"

    This is the book to help you set business goals and build and organize a team that works together and is right for your business. It could also be implemented in your everyday life to maintain focus! Well, for the most part. :)
    Our small business has been integrating these principles into our routine and vision for the past two years and our productivity, profit, and growth has greatly increased! This last year was our best year yet.
    In short, I highly recommend this book!

    "Solid material"

    Because it is a process driven system the material is dry
    The reader is monotone and this doesn't enliven the content
    The EOS is a commendable system and worth implementing

    "Pretty good"

    Some useful tips and ideas like the scorecard.

    For large businesses it's great, but for sole traders far less so.

    A few really good ideas came from it, but lots of lists make it hard to follow at times. Fine if you're working at a desk whilst listening, but not for in the car etc.

    "outstanding information, will be buying the book"

    jam packed full of systems and methods to apply to your book I quickly realised I wanted to write everything this down but in the end just listened through and decided I'd buy the book. honestly I'm not even going to buy the kindle version, I'm going to buy the paperback because I want the information on paper. before you buy the audio book or papepr book you can check on the Eos worldwide website for a bunch of free resources but they mostly won't have context without the book.
