4.0 out of 5 stars Something For Everyone November 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is packed with stories, lists, and great tidbits of inspiration and advice on more than just leadership. You would be hard pressed not to find something helpful in this book to help you with your business, marketing, or just life in general.

I had to dock a star because of the formatting that makes navigating the book difficult. It lacks both a linked Table of Contents and NCX chapter navigation that would allow readers to skip from chapter to chapter.

I just love everything Dave Kerpen does. I've known of Dave forever - but he's really sprung Top of Mind through his Influencer work on LinkedIn. His new book is AWESOME and a must read for every business person - whether you want to be a leader or not - this book will make you more effective in your business (and maybe a better person too!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a fireside chat with Dave November 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will start by saying that this is not a typical book on leadership that nicely flows from one topic to the next. It is not. As dave says in the intro it is a lot of his works from the year put together in one collective place. It is a bit disjointed, each chapter has its own unique theme that may or may not build on the last and as such it is not a typical leadership book.

Yet, as I read through it, all of those things that I just listed did not build up as a collective strike against the book. Instead they made it unique and thoroughly likable. This book is like having a long conversation with Dave and hearing his unbiased thoughts recollections of his life, and his hard earned insights. I have read dozens of books from John Maxwell, Darren Hardy, Colen Powell, etc. and you rarely hear such honest recollections at the failures and flaws that drove the inspirations that made them the leaders we know today. This book is like a fireside chat with Dave after a great meal where the conversation flows and splinters into a dozen topics. Each one no less full of insight or constructed with less detail than the one before, and all relating to a carefully crafted central theme.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dave nails it again with his book. His take on leadership, and what it means to create a WOW! ( or should I say 'Likeable') experience for his customers is worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars FROM A VERY LIKEABLE LEADER November 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A really useful book for those of us striving to be authentic leaders. If you follow Dave anyway, some of the content will be very familiar but is worth revisiting over and over. A book I will go back to and reread as I face different issues as a leader.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for new leaders January 2, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this book because, as a new manager, I constantly struggle with what I want to do and what I should do to develop as a good leader. This book is full of good leadership principles from someone that has learned and put them into practice. I also enjoyed the sections on authors to read, podcasts to listen to, and apps to try. These are very practical steps to improve right away. Well worth a read!
