After finishing this book, I immediately remembered times in my young life where I know I didn't give it my all on certain tasks or where I could have gone above and beyond what was required. I remember many times when I also just gave up. This book was inspiring and has given me a new outlook regarding my job and my life goals. There are actually many lessons to be learned in this little book.
The main lesson I took away from the book is that if someone like Mr. Peck could give 100% and get the job done, then I really have no excuse.
The story itself is short, and written in an older english that today's current lingo, so I suggest getting the audio with the book, since some of the phrases are not common and may take more than once to understand. Enjoyed this read, and will definately suggest it to my friends who are in pursuit of success.
I found it to be a good story once I got past the writing/dialect style. It had a good moral compass, and I found it inspirational.
It is a quick and worthwhile book to read.
There is a man in my town who owns 14 Pizza Huts. I found out he made his managers read this book before he hired them. I figured if it's good enough for him, it would be good enough for me.
It is a fast read, entertaining but also gets across the point very well about self-starting.
I recommend it to bosses, parents and those who want to self-start everywhere.
