Description

From the New York Times best-selling author of Start with Why and Leaders Eat Last, a bold framework for leadership in today’s ever-changing world.

How do we win a game that has no end? Finite games, like football or chess, have known players, fixed rules, and a clear endpoint. The winners and losers are easily identified. Infinite games, games with no finish line, like business or politics, or life itself, have players who come and go. The rules of an infinite game are changeable, while infinite games have no defined endpoint. There are no winners or losers - only ahead and behind.

The question is, how do we play to succeed in the game we’re in?

In this revelatory new audiobook, Simon Sinek offers a framework for leading with an infinite mindset. On one hand, none of us can resist the fleeting thrills of a promotion earned or a tournament won, yet these rewards fade quickly. In pursuit of a just cause, we will commit to a vision of a future world so appealing that we will build it week after week, month after month, year after year. Although we do not know the exact form this world will take, working toward it gives our work and our life meaning.

Leaders who embrace an infinite mindset build stronger, more innovative, more inspiring organizations. Ultimately, they are the ones who lead us into the future.

The concept is interesting

The title by itself is already what you need to know.
Infinite game is a good concept of what an entreprise should aim for.
Simon is without doubt an excellent speaker, I saw a lot of his videos on youtube, that's how I ended up reading this.
Sorry for the hard earned stars for the evaluation but I have to admit, the online videos that he does are already way way better than this book ! In a nutshell, you could just ignore the book and type his name on youtube and watch all his videos with this subject, and "voilà" you get all you need to know about the infinite game and more.

Just go watch his TED Talks on the subject

I think Simon is great. The way he approaches this issue, as well as, his work on millineals (SP) is top notch. I have heard time speak, and watch many of his TED talks on this subject. Naturally, alot of overlap. I think your better off watching the TED talks and getting than listening to the audio book

Falls short. Examples seem off or dated.

I love Mr. Sinek’s work. I am however disappointed in this book. Simon had leaned heavily on the past, and provided examples that are questionable. His admiration for Apple is well known. However, no mention of how Tim Cook is in fact playing the infinite game. Simon talks at length about Microsoft’s past mistakes and yet ignores how the current CEO has completely changed the company by playing the long game. He talks about American Airlines which is struggling, making no mention of Delta which has show how airlines can play the infinite game.

Mr. Sinek’s message is spot on and the book could have been even more powerful had he researched the companies he cites in the book, with an eye for currency and industry leaders - whose CEOs are in fact better playing the infinite game.

Good book. Could have been better.

I love Sinek but...

I’ve loved Simon Sinek, but as an economics student, I couldn’t get through the fourth chapter of this book without cringing at his lack of fluency in economic history. To put forth the assertion that companies cared about their employees and everything was hunky-dory until Milton Friedman came along in the 70’s and taught companies to be greedy is to blatantly ignore the bulk of 20th century American economic history. Sinek asserts that massive layoffs to meet projections were unthinkable before the 1970s, then quotes Henry Ford saying that companies need to exist to do more than make money a few sentences later. Henry Ford is the same guy who said the problem with unemployment during the depression is that no one would do an honest day’s work, and then promptly laid off a couple thousand employees a couple weeks later.

When Sinek said that speculation by by investment bankers “caused the Great Depression,” I had to stop listening. If Edward Tufte isn’t comfortable saying definitively what “caused” the Great Depression, Sinek sure as hell shouldn’t be.

While I think the premise of this book is sound, The lack of economic historical literacy that Sinek displays in supporting his argument undermines the books entire premise. This shoddy level of research is, in my opinion, far beneath Sinek, and certainly shouldn’t have made it past the editors of this book. The idea of the infinite/finite game is sound. But as it stands now, Sinek selectively interprets the business events of the 20th century to defend it. I expect better.

A great way of thinking!

I loved this book. There are so many great nuggets that I am going to put into practice at my company. Anyone in business today should read this - you may not be able to change your company or situation - but armed with the perspectives you will be able to navigate the business world better because you read it.

Simon has done it again...

He has written a book that perpetuates his cause by guiding future and current leaders to change their thinking on how they're going to lead or currently leading those in their charge. I thoroughly enjoyed his book and can't wait for the next one.

Great material flat presentation

I found the material of the book inspiring. However the reading was flat. Maybe my expectations were too high as I have seen the authors TED talks and was expecting the same dynamic presentation in this book.

Wow.

While I've enjoyed the last 2 books by Simon, I was impressed by the stories, but the insights to me were fairly self evident. However this book gave me plenty of things to reconsider and re examine on my own motives and behaviors.

Relates to every facet of life, not just business

I knew this idea of an infinite mindset before reading the book. But now it’s understood in technicolor. Our just cause will direct our next steps with conviction and purpose. If you’re stuck, this will give you healthy direction

Reset

This book opened my eyes to how I was viewing not only my business but my relationships and my life. I think this new vision of the infinite game will rewrite my life moving forward.

7 hours of bullshit

Roughly 1 hour into this book I'm highly disappointed. Since Sinek is not a professional speaker listening to him reading this book causes a headache in the first place. Secondly he just keeps rambling on about his ideas which mostly are common knowledge or ideas with no proof at all. He says at the beginning "it's surprising that this book even needs to exist". The truth is: it doesn't. If I change my mind in the next 6 hours I'll update this review. If it stays that way then you know that you can spare yourself some time and money and move on.

Great audiobook anyone can benefit from

While I found the first chapter to be a little tedious, I don't regret buying this audiobook one bit and can only recommend it to anyone.

A must listen in my opinion ;)

Strong concept. In the end it is about the meaning of life itself in the domain of managing concepts and leadership. A must read for any leader.

Important viewpoint for life and business

I was happy to see Simon reads his own book. I've always loved his talks, and this book didn't dissapoint! Interestingly, the mindset he explains, of playing the infinite game, doesn't just help us build stronger, long lasting organizations, but adhering to a cause larger than ourselves is also a huge factor in emerging science on what makes people happy. We need the type of leaders that Sinek helps us become!

Great book read by an inspiring person

It’s easy to hear what Simon tells us but it is unbelievably hard to transfer it into real life. But following his approach also enriched with examples makes it easier to understand and also to find similar small examples in our life to act with an infinite mindset.
Really a great inspiring book for those wo really want to take action and to change themselves...

Truely inspiring

This was an amazing and simple, yet deeply inspiring book about the idea of primarily focusing on a cause bigger then yourself in life. It shows you the importance of finding values that lead every aspect of your life, not only in businesses and also explains how you can integrate it even if you don’t own a business.
