Purchased based on TED talk

Introduction and closing chapters were good but remainder of book was a rehash of same concept with different platitudes.

Outstanding!!!

The optimist is back.
The fact that not all of us has clear Just Cause as Mr.Jobs or Dr. Luther, the reason to find one or join one is so relatable to me.
I might join Simon Sinek’s cause to make people safer at meaningful work and be a Infinite player in life.

I think everyone should read this book and spread the idea of this optimist.

Another great job Simon, I’m one of your cause followers now.

Game changer

The understanding of this concept has changed the way I view so many things in life and something I can apply to every thing I do.

Simon has a way with words and stories that enable you to understand the message clearly.

More people need to hear this

I feel like everyone needs to take a course on Simon Sinek before they finish school. This was such an inspiring book and to think of how different the world would be if we all had more of an infinite mindset. And not just for the world of business, but for all people of the world.

Brilliant

Full disclosure - Im a Simon Sinek fanboy, so my review will be biased.
Love the way Simon breaks things down into very simple and approachable concepts.
This book itself was great, and my big takeaway was refining my businesses 'Just Cause'

Whilst at first I felt it was out of my depth as I listen to Simon it was so clear and simple to understand.
Thank you Simon.

Great topic and great performance

Simon Sinek is always a great performer.
The topic is very high level, it is about mindset, rather than a to do list.

Relevant for the right thinking in business today

This book for me articulates the growing train of thinking (philosophically) required for long-term success in today’s business climate which rightly so is becoming more and more focused on the customer and matching a companies cause to its customers ethical view of what a company should do both for them and the community it serves both locally and globally...the companies that align themselves with this inspiring view are justifiably benefiting from this more and more in an “infinite” way...welcome to the brave new world...

Maybe another way to put it...companies will be richly rewarded in the brave new world by all who adopt an infinite mindset in and out of the boardroom not because they have to but because they feel compelled to do so. These same people will typically Dare to Lead their people with empathy and compassion, Multiplying their peoples capacities and turning off products and services that will “add” to the world not at its expense...this is a much needed mindset shift required in our world to tackle more than corporate greed and responsibility but a required shift from humanity itself on a personal and collective scale.

Wow! I was truly impressed.

The value here is that this book is relevant to now. It shows us how leaders have been thinking. How others have been thinking and how we should be thinking if we want to continue on the path of responsibility, sustainability and longevity in our Busines lives. The infinite game.

Being the catalyst for change

If you ever wondered how to make that impact this is it. At last a book on business and life that I can recommend to my team, my seniors, even my family and the whole world.

Simon absolutely rocked this book. This will and have become a starting point for all our strategic endeavors.

Wow.

Hard truths about what passes for leadership in the corporate landscape and how humility, holding oneself to account and doing the hard but necessary things to preserve integrity of brand both matter and are their own reward.

This need to be the mainstream

we know or feel that the way we chase growth success or our goals is flawed and wrong, but we put our head down and tried to fit in for a long time.
Simon Sinek shed a bright light on this issue and help lead you out of it.

Can't wait for the next book.

Another great book by Simon Sinek. I have read all the books by him and they are very inspiring and calling for change in society and us.
Simon - If you do get to read this review. After reading your first book "Start With Why" I quit my job in the industry that I worked for more than 10 years. When I read your books and recommend them to others I say - just be careful as your world view is about to change.

Slow to start, makes some good points though

I’ve read 4 of his book now I think. It’s good, not a page turner like leaders eat last or start with why, still enjoyed it 😀.

Sublime

Not only for business people, but for everyone. This book opened more my mind to the meaning of life. Everyone with a spark of good inside could get inspired and think onwards what choices they make for improving their life and especially the lives of others in the long term. This book would teach me patience in life working for a better tomorrow.
What I've thought before, it's actually here too: that better is better than the best. The process in getting better and sticking to our Just Cause might be long (actually being infinite) and not pleasant at all times but it's more worth it than to look only for the short-term material success.

Another awesome book by Simon Sinek!!!

I don’t write many reviews, I have been with audible since 2014 and don’t listen to fiction, his audible books are by far the best I have listened too. Always inspiring and articulated in a way that anyone can understand. I hope to one day meet Simon to thank him in person.

One trick pony

The author seems to make a career out of stating the bleeding obvious. Of course, common sense is rarely common, so his first book had some value perhaps.

But for me his last two have been pointless, boring and totally unnecessary.

A different approach to leadership

Following the servant leader approach, this book illustrates how to visualize and communicate relations in the company so teams will succeed in the long term. A must.

Another brilliant book

Once again, Simon Sinek has delivered. The concept of the finite and infinite game is clearly explained and brought to life through a great range of case-studies from some of the most renowned organisations. The importance of organisations having and sticking to their 'Just Cause' is a key aspect of the book, also brought to life through the use of interesting and poignant case-studies.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will now look to apply the principles and ensure my mindset is aligned to the 'Infinite Game'.
