A really, easy, quick read with lots to think about.

I get the feeling there was much more to the story than what David Marquet shared in his book. What we got was pretty much the executive summary without a whole lot of detail ... and that is good. I thought he struck a really good balanced of congealing ideas and supporting those ideas with relevant examples.

There are a few parts I plan to go back and read again and really try to absorb ... I dog-eared about a dozen pages.

Also, this was a great book to discuss as part of our agile transformation at work. We read one part per week and talked about some of the highlights and how to apply them at work.

If you are looking for a quick read about leadership and becoming more agile/lean, then this is a great introduction book. Be sure to sign up for his newsletter - great content and videos.
