Funny, sing-song, warm, flawed and heart warming.

This is one of those books you look at and imagine you can predict, but you can't. It's also one of those you look at and think you don't need, but you do. And it's also one of those you don't think will touch you, but it will.

An insightful look

The hate filled white supremacy movement is often obscured by so many factors. What the author does here is expose to the public the circumstances under which otherwise ordinary young men can become twisted and adoring of a hateful ideology with exploits them as much as it abuses everyone it condemns.

Awesome book.

Love last forever, and it doesn't matter if I eat my sandwich sideways. Also, screw you Mike Pence.

This book isn't one of those that lists principles and then gives you a few examples like most are. Instead, it's more biographical, it speaks of a multitude of problems and then explains the guiding principles that they strove for in order to find a solution.

In this way, it neither prescribes solutions nor trivialises those principles. Instead, it invites you to think, perhaps differently, about your values and the sacrifices it'll take to stick to them. This is why the book excels.

If you just want a list of well researched guiding principles to start, read the 7 habits by Steven Covey. Then read this book to hear what it takes to stick by them in a business setting.

slightly longer than the Ted talk

if you've already seen the eponymous Ted talk, then you've already heard the meat of it. still, I'm glad to have it here as an always ready reminder of the struggles faced by women and the role I may play in it as a man.

if you haven't heard the talk, you'll enjoy this read thoroughly.

What I crave more, after having read this book is for the next one which will follow his 8 years as president. Should he choose to write one, I shall attain a copy.

Peter Drucker saw long ago where we were headed and he did his best to prepare us for it. This small book contains great insights into what we need to even begin to be anyone of worth in the new Knowledge worker age.
