I appreciated the stories and principles in this book. I did not like the egalitarianism found near the end, but reading to the end was worth it because that's when he at least let a little off the air out of his humble-brags. Anyway, a leader should keep learning, listening, and leading.

"the winning leader's first principle: Optimism rules. And the corollary: Opportunities never cease. The bottom line: It's your ship. Make it the best."

Should you read this? If you lead somewhere, then yes, put this into your non-urgent but needing-a-shot-in-the-arm queue.
