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.
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.

Dave first got people's attention with “11 Simple Concepts to Become a Better Leader,” a post on LinkedIn which became one of their top 20 posts of all time, with over 27 million views! As Dave notes, “We can all benefit from becoming better leaders and feeling more inspired, no matter what our jobs are.
Dave shares his insecurities, giving others’ with similar doubts hope. For example, this self-described “poor kid from Brooklyn,” shared that he didn’t go on a date until he was 20 years old and didn’t have a girlfriend until he was 22, (he is now happily married to Carrie Kerpen who is also his business partner and a father to three), and he almost didn’t start his first business, Likable Media, (named one Crain’s Best Places to Work in 2014), due to his fear of failure.
“Being likeable will help you in your job, business, relationships, and life.Read more ›
And all this at a first meeting when I did not even know him well nor did he know me.
Subsequently I have got to know him a lot better and marvel even more at his truly helpful nature.
And the reason I mentioned this tale is that this same approach permeates the entire book. He does not give you dry theory. He give you eminently practical and immediately actionable tips in bite sized pieces. You can, literally, start reading from anywhere and read as much as you like and find some nugget that will help you with any problem you are facing.
The best part is that it is also truly inspiring. Dave has built a successful business and wants to help you do the same but also to build a successful life. And he is sincere about this.Read more ›
