Top customer reviews
Dets.: One of my personal indicators for how much I like a book is the number of notations I've made within its pages; I count at least five in the first three pages. Well done, Kate and Lisa. The text is clear, well-developed, and accessible; as a new team member of an undoubted "moonshot" start-up, I feel validated and inspired. Each chapter is filled with actionable tips for success in executing one's moonshot, and I keep a copy at my desk at work, AND a copy (Kindle version) with me at all times.
While I have been avoiding adding physical books to my shelf and reading more on the Kindle App these days, this is a book to buy and hold. It has a wonderful physical design and a very readable information design.
