Finished reading: Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action by Simon Sinek
I posted about this one after a few chapters because it started to get on my nerves. I think I hate-finished it. The author makes some more questionable connections (a bow needs to pulled away from the target… what?) and continues to write like the reader is definitely American. The argument that Apple fans and Harley riders like iPhones and Harleys because of why the respective companies do what they do never convinced me in the slightest.
The message that the why of a company should be prominent, consistent, and persistent seems fine, I just don’t think I liked how that point was made (and taken too far).
Much of the book, particularly the final chapters are great examples of survivorship bias but the author seems to either be deliberately overlooking that.
I didn’t particularly enjoy this book.
