The book contains great solid leadership advice. It does, however, make assumptions that the place being worked in are good, functional, leaders already doing a great job. There is an implicit assumption that because leaders are smart and in charge they are right or reasonable. I would have liked more consideration of leading up the chain, or Dealing with mismanagement.

Some of the best lectures on mythology from around the world.

I believed this would be a simple how to guide but was presently surprised by the personal reflections of life and the lessons shared about the human journey. There were one or two times that I would reframe his conclusions, but this was not a distraction and I still think his reasoning and justification were well argued. Some great tips, timely reminders, and strong advice. Highly recommend.

As an educator I am surrounded by new trends and ‘research’ in gender and care for students. There were many questions and insights that didn’t make sense to me, but Debora helps provide a scientific and level approach that helped me support students and their needs while also advocating truth.

It’s not comprehensive and I did disagree with some of the conclusions on working with you brains and expectations. However, while it didn’t satisfy my confirmation bias I did like being challenged by his ideas as they are well researched, well reasoned and well presented.

With plenty of real word stories and thought provoking analysis Shrier pushes a more insightful understanding of the dangers of allowing teens to form their identity online. The insight and discussion is littered with practical advice and hope for the future of our daughters.

I was expecting a simple management boom that gave some old trodden truths with a few links to the art of war. What I found was something truly insightful, covering a variety of war like scenarios with genuine real life application. Worth every second.

It is a humble and touching reflection on Levy’s time in a company that clearly touch his life as much as he helped them. Filled with nostalgia about the times of Pixar it holds plenty of awe about the early stages of the company and how fortunate it is to even exist. He brings it all together in a brief but thought provoking reflection on his spiritual journey. A book I am sure to go back to.

I expected an insightful book on how to improve my personal time management but I found a series of powerful and touching moments along the way. It’s not a prescriptive book, but a descriptive one that will set you on the path.
