My partner and I - both of whom run services businesses - found this to be insightful as Patrick's work always is.

I'm definitely a type Y person. I'd love to intro these techniques to our team. Seriously considering a ten percent time trial.

Really the preeminent book of its time in terms of a realistic, evidence based, authentic assessment of women in leadership. Some excellent practical advice and interesting ways of thinking about some of these topics that I hadn't previously considered.

Awesome - just awesome!

I wrote a whole big review and this silly app won't post it so I'll post it elsewhere instead. But needless to say this was a brilliant and inspiring read.

So glad I'm not the only one!

Being a CEO is lonely and hard. To hear someone else's honest perspective and resonate with so much of it. Lots of real and useful advice for the hardest parts of our jobs.

As a millennial manager managing millennial team members I found this book really insightful with some great, operational advice on crossing the generational divide and creating an engaged workforce.

Really listenable and I loved the format of a story based approach then followed by going through the dysfunctions in detail.

Amazing reading and evidence based learnings

Jim was very specific in his annunciation which was at times useful and at others a little strange but for me it's always much more enjoyable hearing the work directly from the author because they intone every word with the intended meaning that they wrote it with.

So many great learnings I'll be applying to my growing business - it's clear I need to work on my discipline and consistency, and not inflict so much change on my organisation.

I think the most exciting component is knowing that these extreme success is a choice, not luck or just something that happens to you. And there is a formula of key good practice activities that will help you navigate to that point: I also found the analogies really memorable
and very poignant.

Changing my business world!

This, along with the essentialist by Greg McKeown have been the two most important books I've read in the last couple of years and I'm getting all of our leadership team to read the book and we will start to implement some of the most important practices.

The only very small point I'd make would be that the narrator sometimes didn't quite pick up the flow of what was being written which made it harder to understand some sentences but there was only a handful of cases of that.
