Got this book in the welcome pack at JSinSA 2017 conference.

Book didn't look like much, quite "lean".

I enjoyed the format of having a bunch of small chapterettes.
It is extremely easy to read and follow. Information is to the point.

Found my self laughing a couple of times.

The premise of the book is to break away from legacy thinking/doing, and change things.

He presents an idea, then give examples of small practical things that can be done.
He also urges you to change your habits around things that

A quick, fun and thought-provoking read. Make sure you have a pen with you when reading this book as you'll want to make a ton of notes. Some really smart thinking in this book.

If you've ever seen Rich speak or had lunch with him, you'll read this and hear him talking you through his book!

Rich has written a useful and insightful "business" book that isn't a book about business in the traditional (best practice) way. Which is the point.

Read with a notepad nearby. If you've never met Rich, this book is like a fooking long coffee with him.

Legacide is jam-packed with lessons, thought-starters, ponderings, questions, more questions, but above all it takes you to an uncomfortable place where most fear to tread: Questioning yourself and all the decisions you've made until now. Brutally brilliant.

Every Business owner... actually, everyone should read this book

Richard nails it... so many things we do in our work days are simply legacy... this book and the topics have sparked so many debates in our office and a whole new way of trying to achieve our goals... thanks Rich!
