    Great book. Intelligent aspects exposed on being in charge of anything. Great life morals also.
  • Bad story

    This book has some great points but it takes pages of long badly written unrealistic story to find them.

    This book made me want to read it to the end. It was inspiring, informative and entertaining. The points were simple to understand but powerful. I really liked the first point to challenge assumed constraint. I now realize I have failed to achieve many things because I assumed things that really were not true. Thanks. I plan to read again and tell others about it.
  • Very easy and quick read!

    I purchased this book to read on a cruise. I had it read before we left port. I prefer a more direct approach book, but the storyline was entertaining and still got it's message across.
