There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I will say that I like the concept. I think Who not How is a super powerful, critical, often missed in business concept worthy of attention. I also like the tool in the book, the "Impact Filter" is a well designed, streamlined tool for problem solving.
Beyond just the book itself, though, I was particularly let down because of the extraordinary number of good reviews it has online. That really set me up for something special that was not delivered to me.
I did some digging into the backgrounds of those associated with the book, and learned that the good reviews are not an accident. The book was published by Scribe Media, which is owned by a guy named Tucker Max who is close friends with Ryan Holliday, two men who are famous for their media manipulation skills. Tucker Max is also a rape apologist and misogynist. Dan Sullivan himself also has a lot of beliefs that I don't agree with, and his reviews as an employer on Glassdoor are scathing.
Further, I think it's dishonest that Dan Sullivan even has a byline on this book. He's very clear that he didn't write it, only saw it when it was done, only provided some notes, and then it was published. It's not Dan Sullivan with Ben Hardy. It's Ben Hardy with an idea he heard from Dan Sullivan.
Tl;DR - hard pass.
I wanted to write a book to honor my mother who passed away in March 2020, but I didn't have the time or ability to write it. I hired a ghost writer within 3 days of making the decision to proceed. Six months later, a very exciting first draft is finished and the book will be issued in the first quarter of 2021.
At work, we now look for expert Who's to help when we are stuck rather than floundering and wasting time and money. The right Who's are out there and love to do just about anything you don't want to do or don't know how to do. Dan Sullivan is a genius at creating practical ways to enhance personal freedom and usefulness.
Then I switched the question around and asked myself, "What exactly do I need to get done?" and then followed it up with "Who could do all this for me?" The next day I contacted the person I needed to talk to and we began working out a deal. Now, I don't need to worry about the how, because instead of asking how I asked who.
This is just part of what this book teaches you to do, but if you like this one tidbit, you'll love the rest.
That was the case with WHO NOT HOW.
From the unorthodox way it was written to the uncommon secrets that are shared with the reader, what began as excitement soon turned into anxiety and then pivoted once more to excitement.
Let me explain.
You discover a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, you feel excited.
You have no clue what to do with said pot of gold, you feel anxiety at the responsibility it presents you with.
You realize that regardless of your skill set, you have still found a pot of gold, and the excitement returns.
This book is, perhaps not even in a metaphorical sense, your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
You'll better understand past decisions you made that failed. You'll start finding time after time after time when you unknowingly applied WHO NOT HOW to your life and succeeded because of it.
And finally, you'll have a decision to make: rationalize why your past successes would have worked regardless and go about your life continuing to play small ball.
Or, accept the truth you've been shown and strap yourself in for the ride.
