Surprisingly not that interesting so far. The main focus is on leadership, rather than how to overcome fear. Also the style is sort of weird, as if the author emailed a questionnaire to the people being profiled and then rewrote the responses into the third person.

I guess it's hard to write an interesting, inspiring book about this. When you zoom out far enough, all of the high-profile people blend together. They do stuff, they expect to lose sometimes, they don't worry what people think, they empower and value the people working for them. I'm wondering if there's anything to be gained from reading beyond the first few profiles--so far, it's all the same.
