Great overview.

I think it's really important to listen the story of Ray's life so that you can gain a better insight into where the thoughts have come from

Wow!

It's still worth listening as an interesting autobiographical account of one man's work and approach, but as a blueprint for success, I suspect you'll end up being disappointed.

Extreme truthfulness.

Idea-meritocratic decision making is better than traditional autocratic or democratic decision making in almost all cases.

They are all independent thinkers who do not let anything or anyone stand in the way of achieving their audacious goals.

Life's work is a fantastic.

Life's work is a fantastic listen for anyone who sits on the fence surrounding abortion, any christian who is contemplating their own moral absolutes, and what their god actually requires of them, and should be mandatory for all med students.

I enjoyed listening .

I like the way Dalio turned his principles into theories to be tested and then constantly honed and improved these through and the outcome was this book.

Life principles.

Ray translated that into a number of life principles. Again it goes too far to mention them all, but you should look them up. There is no need to reinvent the wheel.

Extremely articulate and deeply insightful.

Extremely articulate and deeply insightful. His description of his approach to patient care is detailed. You almost feel that you are observing the process right next to him. The book is well researched in the law and ethical arguments.
