Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Find Your Why by Simon Sinek, David Mead and Peter Docker, read by Stephen Shedletzky and with an introduction by the author.

Find Your Why is the follow up to Start with Why, the global best seller and the subject of the third most watched TED Talk of all time. With Start with Why, Simon Sinek inspired a movement to build a world in which the vast majority of us can feel safe while we are at work and fulfilled when we go home at night. Now, along with two of his colleagues, Peter Docker and David Mead, Sinek has created a guide to the most important step any business can take: finding your why.

This easy-to-follow guide starts with the search for your personal why, and then expands to helping your colleagues find your organization's why. With detailed instructions on every stage in the process, the book also answer common concerns, such as: What if my why sounds like my competitor's? Can you have more than one why? And, if my work doesn't match my why, what do I do? Whether you're an entry level or a CEO, whether your team is run by the founder or a recent hire, these simple steps will lead you on a path to a more fulfilling life and long-term success for you and your colleagues.

Great read - time for action

What a fabulous tool kit that will help so many answer the question that Simon ignited in his previous books.
I myself am inspired by Simon to help others find thier why and an advocate for the discovery process.
Thanks for some fabulous material to support that

The ultimate guide to find your why

Too many books are about concepts and leave you with no way to take action, this is the perfect how to guide on how to find your why

Would recommend this as a written book.

After listening to this, I think it would have been better for me to read the written version as there’s a lot of links and activities that needs to be done and personally I find it harder to having to rewind audio. In terms of narration, I’m not sure if Simon refers to himself in third person in the book but the narrator refers to him as “Simon Sinek” all the time , I would have preferred first person. Overall I think it’s a great book and everyone did a great job but in hindsight I think this would be better to read as a physical book.

Find your why

Simon Sineks ted talk was so well presented that it was a must to further study his material and dive deeper into his ideas. Finding your why is a practical common sense approach to starting growing and knowing you and your business. First things first find your why !

Waste of time for me

Simon was great on Ted but book not worth when you are listening on Audible. May be worth for a business coach but somehow I didn't like it.

Very good sound quality for a practical tool

What did you like about this audiobook?

The tone and the rythm as well as the clear pronounciation for a non native English speaking professional made the experience highly enjoyable.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

I like the fact that the story conveys a logical and well structured script to help individuals, groups or companies to find their WHY, while the importance of the emotional piece to get the best outcome out of it is highlighted along the entire process.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

No. I had only watched videos of Simon Sinek.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Are you in?

Do you have any additional comments?

Thanks and hope shortly most of the people are in. We would have a completely different world. Much better, no doubt.

I want to like it but I can't

Simon narrates only for 10 mins max the other guys voice isn't great in fact he is annoying. I do agree with some other reviews that the book is boring and very cheesy. I did like the last book, start with why, but this one is patronising with the odd interesting forward thinking view but not enough to justify the listen. Overall it is a missed opportunity and a weak listen.

Very dull and had to turn off!

I have listened to the first audio book - start with why which was superb. So I expected this to be of the same standard and a follow on but after 45 mins I had had enough it is just so slow and repetitive. Don't waste your money!

disappointing delivery

i was really looking forward to this one. it was recommended by several sources. i was sold.
It was a good start, an intro by the author. so far so good. Then the reader started. I'd get used of his voice after a bit, I thought. I didnt. It became increasingly grating. The low nasal monotone drone blended all the sounds together.
It reminded me of a broken emergency exit light.
i gave up after 15 minutes.

A good book, but left feeling deceived

I loved the audiobook version of Simon Sinek's "Start With Why". Accordingly, I was really looking forward to this audiobook. My first disappointment (which I could and should have known beforehand) is that it was not narrated by Simon Sinek. The narrator was fine, I had just expected it to be the author. So then I discover that the Foreword was written and narrated by Simon Sinek. I began to realise that something was afoot. After all, authors normally have someone else write the Foreword of their book. Then realisation dawned. This book does not appear to be written by Simon Sinek at all, more by two of his team. Furthermore, a large chunk of the book is basically advertising the first book. Had I not read the first book, I probably would not have felt like this, but I did and I was left with an overall sensation of feeling deceived. It is quite a good book, but it feels like false advertising to claim it is "by Simon Sinek".

Ruined by the voice

Why do they always use these tinny overly American voice overs??? So annoying. Simon Sineks voice is much better.

Practical book from the excellent ‘start with why’

Liked the format of the book and the practical guide to understanding one’s why. At times it felt the examples given were too cliche’, but generally a good guide.

almost as good as start with why

I wished it was Simon Sinek the narrator, he has more energy and passion about the subject.

Interview story brought Start with Why to life

I’d read the other books and seen the TED talk but the example of the woman in an interview really brought the principle of Why to life.

Must read, practical and a recap in one

A must read/listen for those in leadership positions. Having listened to many books on purpose this has a practical perspective that I haven't heard before. It would be better if Simon read it himself but overall hugely valued. It would also be better to clearly flag which areas of the book are relevant to each listener eg. Start with why Partners etc. But overall a great insight.

Does not work as an audio book.

This book is s great example of the need for a physical book. I really really like the first book Start with why. And was delighted to find this but it is not working. I appreciate it's a help book style book but its not inspiring me. Original book is ten stars, this needs to be consumed in paperback and not audio.
