Description

The inspiring, life-changing best seller by the author of Leaders Eat Last and Together Is Better.

In 2009 Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work and, in turn, inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who've watched his TED Talk based on Start with Why - the third most popular TED video of all time.

Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?

People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with why. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the why behind it.

Start with Why shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way - and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with why.

Trop long pour si peu

En ce qui concerne la substance du livre, son message, je lui donne 5 étoiles !

Mais le contenu est bien trop long à mon avis ! C’est la mode en ce moment de raconter des anecdotes à n’en plus finir et de les répéter tout au long du livre. Et le message reste toujours le même, il ne grandit pas.

L’auteur n’avait pas besoin de consacrer un livre entier à ce message. Il aurait pu y inclure le second livre qui est le « comment » pour en faire un vrai livre complet et là peut-être qu’il mériterait les 5 étoiles.

Malgré cela, je le recommande quand même car le message en vaut la peine.

Goosebumps

Excellent book everyone should read. Chapter 13 is incredibly powerfull: "I was thinking of something even worse than the thought suicide for an entrepreneur... I was thinking about getting a job."

a 15 minutes book turned into few hours

What would have made Start with Why better?

One topic, with one solution turned into a whole book. 30 minutes book would have been much more interesting. the topic just doesn't support the book.

What could Simon Sinek have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Cover more items and stop repeating one case over and over and over...

Any additional comments?

I love Somon Sinek. I truly believe he is a smart and inspiring speaker. That just adds to my disappointment from this book.

Wish I had or sooner

If I would have learned about this book younger my life qould probably be different. I have started so much and not known how and then forgotten why. I highly recommend this book.

Important. Insightful. Enjoyable. Can summarize in 3 mins. The rest is just gratuitous.

Could be a third as long

There are a lot of great ideas and stories in this book. However the author repeats himself many times. By the end of the book you will be tired of hearing the same stories about Apple and Walmart.

Book should be relabeled “why Apple is the best”

I’m shocked how much senek reference Apple without using other companies as an example. For as long as this book is he really should have been able to come up with 50 examples as opposed to just the 3-5 it seemed like he kept using.

Start with Why- Inspire

This makes total sense- look at the title- “Start with Why” - work from the inside out- yes- its the meaning of in-spire. If you hold on with the reminder of your belief- success shall prevail. This is a great read.. makes very good sense and provides high levels of clarity about leading within...Thank You Simon Sinek- hope to meet you some day-

Useless Dribble

I’m a huge fan of Apple but I think Sinek is an even bigger fan. He ends his book by saying he’s a failure and Beverly really learned how to make a business work. I think that sums up the book. It might as well be called, “why I love Steve jobs so so much”. It sucks. Seriously sucks. His concept of the golden circle is pedantic at best and hardly explains the correlation to the cure all that he claims. It’s so nebulous that he doesn’t elaborate past one chapter. But he does bolden the word WHY about 376 times. Is basically an elongated version of one of his speeches. But worst.

If you want behavioral psychology, read Daniel khanaman. If you’re looking for purpose read Napoleon hill. If you’re looking for strategy read Michael porter or Michael Gerber. But if your dead set on reading this book. Don’t dare ask why you didn’t heed my advice after the first 4 chapters.

In truth, this book really sucks. But there are some good nuggets: the GM vs Toyota example. The Southwest example about turn around flights to reduce fleet size. The concept of why is not entirely lost. It stems from having a deep personal purpose to achieve. But as Sinek explains, that alone doesn’t build a business. You need systems, processes and people. Jobs built systems and processes for consistently vetting good ideas. But like any professional, it was just one caveat to his business. Discipline to focus on the purpose and goals was another factor.

If you only read this book before your started a new business, run back to your day job before you ask WHY did I listen to that guy. I really didn’t like this book. It was poorly written and shallow in thought.

Amazing. I listened in 2 days

I loved everything about this book. The reading was wonderful and Mr. Sinek was inspiring. It was to the point where when it was over I yelled, “nooooo!”

Good start

There some good points in this book but it repeats itself and could be a little bit deeper while 1/2 as long.

If you like Simon this is a good read/listen.

Very good message, but highly repetitive

Lot of talking for a short message. At some point, things start repeating almost dogmatically, even with the exact same words. Sometimes clearly inaccurate, due to overly broad generalizations and fallible logic.
Nevertheless, it's a very good book, that can be recommended to all people who may set their own goals freely. The author has a strong point and brings it across. With a hammer.

Nice idea but too repeptive without any help.

Great basic idea. For that the author got 5 stars.

Then he got 1 star deducted for being overly repeptive while not giving more examples. Of all the examples 50% consist of apple and for some the other few (7-10 at max) he doesn't even state the why clearly (like Harley Davidson, eventhough he mentions the company about 10 times).

The most infruriating IMO though is the fact, that there is no information whatsoever on how to find the why and then only a little information on how to implement the why. If I buy a audio book I expect to have that in there. Especially when it takes more than 7 hours. I was waiting constantly for the author to help me find my why, but that part never came.

So if you are looking for a way how to find your why this book won't help. It will give you the basic concept only and two more points to work on (the why has to meassured and for a why to work you have to have somebody that knows what to do).

All in all disappointing in the end after a great start.

es wiederholt sich, aber

es macht einen deutlich und man konditioniert sich für seine Themen um das warum zu verstehen. man mag es oder nicht, aber jeder kennst es, dass man von einem Mal lesen oder hören man es nicht gleich verinnerlicht hat. also repeat repeat repeat.

Great message! Book too drawn out.

The main measage in this book was super helpful to me. But the substance and depth offerred doesn't justify an 8 hour book. It should have been a 3rd of the length.

I found myself often thinking, "get to the point already". Several examples were repeated in different chapters. The main points were really good, totally worth the book. I just wish the author had presented his thoughts more concisely and efficiently.

Start with why helps to believe in values and storytelling

I like the way Simon Sinek guides the listener through the whole audio book. By telling stories and giving examples from the real world, one can take the messages and implement them in its own life. The advice he gives is easy to follow and possible to adapt in all areas of life. The golden circle is the centre and from there is so much potential to find your own way - as a company or as an individual person.

I highly recommend this audio book if you feel like being stuck in any area of your life. Even for a company, in the end a “customer” is someone with deep believes, values and wants to listen to stories - to feel connected. If you want to improve something maybe you should ask first “why”?
