In fact, it is impossible to read this without reflecting on “What does this mean to me?” This is not the typical business book that gives you lists of things to do, theorems, seven rules, etc. The concrete and practical principles presented are natural and memorable and penetrate your mind and emotions. They hold true in life as well as work. There is exceptional value here for everyone."
