A formative business book for me personally and a book I wish I reviewing much sooner. Tony exemplifies what he preaches in the book, be good, do right by people, with the ultimate focus on enjoying the journey and being happy day to day. In light of his very recent passing, it’s incredible to see the insights and accomplishments of this incredible entrepreneur and leader. This book is a must read for business leaders and a wonderful testament to the brilliance and generous nature of the author. (more…)
At first, I listened to the audiobook, then I bought the hard copy and find myself referring to it frequently. I find that there’s plenty of materials on how to start up. The next phase is where leaders need help and this is as good of a field guide to leadership as I’ve seen. I’ve bought the book for several executives and would prescribe it to anyone who wants to improve their business leadership skills.
While this book might not be a super popular business book, it’s been pretty useful in business overall. For leaders it is extremely important to be self aware and next to “Thinking Fast, Thinking Slow” this book is packed with non-obvious wisdom about how people work. The title as well as the tone of the book is a bit comic and colloquial but that keeps an otherwise “textbook” subject exciting. All in all, very well worth the read!
