If you are looking for a set of practical ideas on how to build an extraordinary company culture, this book is a great place to start. Culturati runs an annual conference where they bring together some of the best thinkers and practitioners on the topic, and this is an anthology of the best ideas. Contributors include Netflix, Southwest Airlines, the Navy SEALS, IDEO, Rackspace, VaynerMedia and many more.

One of the main points of the book is that you can and should learn from what other companies do, but your culture needs to be uniquely your own. You can't copycat, and no one can copy you. When you get it right, and all the factors "click" into place, you will find your company in that magic place of outperformance.

If you don't have that magic click, then you should take a hard look at culture and this book will help you get started.

Company Culture is one of those intangible things that can act as an accelerator or an anchor on growth. There are so many examples ranging from Uber to Theranos to Enron that show that getting culture wrong can trigger catastrophe. But what about the companies that muddle along in the mediocre middle? How can they become a company culture superstar? This book shows them a variety of models that have worked for organizations as diverse as Ben & Jerrys, Buffer, Vaynermedia, Netflix and Southwest Airlines. It's an easy read that will absolutely stimulate your creativity.

Don't take your culture for granted.

Pretty decent advice, nothing really earth shattering, quite a bit of repetition. Though I do believe that it is a great intro book to the modern people-centric approach to HR.
