Heartfelt, Inspirational, and Entertaining
Reviewed in the United States on September 18, 2019
I enjoyed this book thoroughly. The book follows a format that works: it's a zero to one story that ties in business lessons and life lessons (similar to Ray Dalio's 'Principals', or Phil Knight's 'Shoe Dog'). The story itself is fascinating - it captures the grind, the fun, and the adventure of building something. In the final portion of the book Randolph really opens up - he speaks to why he started something, and why he left his baby. Ultimately he left this reader thinking... what are all the things I want to do that people have said "that will never work?" And which of them should I take steps towards trying.
Would recommend to anyone with an idea (business or otherwise). Resonated especially strongly with me as a young person, early in my career, trying to find my passion and determine how much risk is appropriate at this point in my life.
