Overall I really loved the book and I make it a required reading at work. I do so because I want the best team in the world to have all the same knowledge and look at things individually but also in light of we can do that whatever that is. It makes us move more efficient as a team and I have even known some of the team members to take it outside of work and even personally take it into their homes and marriages etc and have been told that it has improved those areas as well.
I have also recommended this book to people outside my business and to other people that are looking for a kind of humor way to look at their current self-development. They have soared.
they were growing up. I do believe that if you invest in yourself with this book your life will change for the better.
I am a Sales Trainer, This is a book for professional as well as for personal success. It is a fast read with a very Powerful message. If you have young children or teenagers this is a must to help them on the road to success in their life. Thank you Scott! I am a Rhinoceros! I have the dam the torpedo's attitude. I can't wait to get up in the morning and start charging................
The author makes the premise that there are two kinds of people in the world, "Cows" and "Rhinos." You get to choose which one you'd like to be. Rhinos are the people who charge ahead and don't let things get them down. They get things done and see the possibilities even in adverse circumstances. Obstacles are merely hurdles to break through, not road blocks that immobilize. Now realistically, every rhino is going to have some "cow" days; the trick is to be a cow as little as possible, because rhinos simply get more done and are more successful. Cows have a different purpose altogether and are OK with mediocre, "good enough" and settling for living in fenced-in pastures, chewing their cud.
Scott Alexander talks about reading a focus statement daily. He suggests: "I am a rhinoceros. I have a damn-the-torpedoes spirit! I am full of energy and I can't wait to get up in the morning to start charging!" Now, write your big picture goal and get moving! Success happens one step at a time, whether the goal is large or small. Whatever you do, do something, stay in action and keep moving forward.
Although it's a bit silly at times, the simple message hits you like a family of charging rhinos and leaves a lasting footprint. Scott Alexander has put out a book that nearly all ages can understand a put to use immedately.
I also recommend the other Rhinoceros books penned by Scott Alexander: "Rhinocerotic Relativity" and "Advanced Rhinocerology".
The book has been a life changer for multitudes of people such as Bear Grylls, whose mother gave him a copy of the book for his 10th birthday. He has made a point of re-reading it every year since. Bear went on to become the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest, doing so at age 23. Today Bear Grylls is a best selling author, an international motivational speaker, and the host of the television series Man vs. Wild, known as Born Survivor in the United Kingdom.
This is not a long book, and that`s intentional. In fact, you can read this book in one sitting. If you are serious about success, you should read this book on a regular basis. Its brevity and simplicity are its strength.
The rhinoceros is used as an example throughout the book because they tolerate no natural predators in the animal kingdom. Not only are they covered with a thick skin, but they are the very definition of toughness and brute force and they are equipped with a deadly horn should it be needed. The author compares the rhino's attributes against the complacence of cows. If there is an animal to emulate greatness it's the rhino, not the cow.
There are many - too many - books about success and motivation, but this one goes to the heart of the matter. This book should be in your library of success, and at the end of your tongue should a prospective employer ask about books you have read.
