As an example, the first takeaway for me was - if you are bringing a truly christian philosophy to bear on your business then you are a threat to our enemy and thus strong prayer support is not a luxury but a necessity.
There are quite a few of the usual points (at least for Ben) on business operations (eg. service before honor) - on the whole my only disappointment is that it isn't longer :-)
Looking forward more case studies in a future version if possible.
I learned the most from the interview w Greg Perry, the Ebay guy (not a business I know well). He explains how he'd rather lose money than his integrity in a transaction. Lots of people say that btw but it's a lesson Christians have to drill down into their head and live by...especially online.
The book does contain theological musings and those interviewed tend towards the charismatic wing of Christianity but it's good for these three reasons:
1)Christians need to be reminded of the value of business and entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs serve. Too many believers are afraid of the marketplace b/c they think it will corrupt them. They exalt government employees (cops, military, teachers) who "provide" a service nobody would buy in a truly free market.
2)It stresses integrity and transparency in your business. Letting your yes be yes and your no be no is something the secular business world is just discovering. They hold TED talks to explain it and attendees leave awed. Christians MUST be a model of integrity otherwise they make a mockery of the faith they profess. Business done right is a powerful evangelism tool. Let's use it!
3)Settle's mind is active and he thinks out loud when talking to his guests. You may find one or two things worth trying or testing. I did.
