Unexpectedly enjoyable with some great stories

I like books that are often labelled as self help or personal development so wouldn't have usually read this, however having met the author I felt he had a lot more to offer than the average journalist, perhaps his book would offer more than I expected?

It took me some time to get through it, but only because I enjoyed going back over some parts to really take them in; there's a great mix of anecdotes and stories which offer insight in to the lives of some of the most powerful and memorable people in recent history.

As an aspiring entrepreneur and businessman, I found there were plenty of really useful points I can adopt in to not only my business, but my overall character, notably "who am I, who are we and what is our purpose".

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the book to others and look forward to seeing what Gavin's other books have to offer.
