it was ok

Short and repetitive book with many unnecessary examples. All the knowledge is very obvious and in some cases not useful. There were however a few useful tips.

The author claims that we all have to aim to be #1 at something. If we can't get there, we might as well quit.

Every new adventure starts with a positive slope of excitement, but after a while, it regresses to a dip where we have to evaluate the possible new trajectory of the adventure. Here we need to have foresight whether we are leading into a dead-end or there is a possibility of growth. If it's a dead-end, then we better quit. If it is just a temporary dip, we better stick it out.
