To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Loved this book. Carey writes from a place of vulnerability and honesty which immediately draws you in and makes what he is talking about relatable on a human level. What I appreciated most about this book was that not only did he identify areas that resonated with me and my own challenges but he offers hope in the way of tangibles that are immediately applicable to life. The chapter on cynicism hit me right in the kisser. It was like looking into a mirror but then becoming equipped to change what you see. I recommend this to any human being.
The book is full of depth but easy to read. It will challenge but still encourage. I have now read it twice in six weeks and will be reading certain chapters again shortly. I have purchased several copies to give to co-workers from the age of 23 to 70. It has something to say to all of us. What a great gift to yourself and others to read and re-read when one of the seven challenges hits or is about to hit.
This is a must read for all leaders. At some point in our lives every person will deal with one of the seven challenges (cynicism, compromise, disconnection, irrelevance, pride, burnout and emptiness) that Carey outlines in this book. He gives us the tools to recognize these challenges and how we can make the necessary changes in our lives to overcome them. His vulnerability in sharing examples from his own life are going to bring hope to people. Thank you :)
