“Leaders need their followers to be perpetually dissatisfied; it’s good for the leadership business. If everything were perfect and great, there’d be no reason to follow anybody.”
This book was never meant to please people. In fact, it will get a lot of hate because the author talks about a lot of uncomfortable subjects. It will give it to you straight for 200 pages. Imagine you have a bad day and you read about how shitty your life gets LOL It is a controversial book, it is an uneasy book to read, even annoying at times. I treat this book as those quick coffee shops non-fiction books you know. If you just turn at any pages, you just learn about some philosophical moment that will explain our today’s society.
But Trang, was it a good book? See, the definition of good changes from one person to another and I would say that this book was good in the order that it has some eye-opening passages. It wasn’t, however, the best book I’ve read. A lot of the author opinions and philosophies I would disagree with but I’m grateful to learn some historical and valuable facts. In overall, it would be a 3/5 stars for me.
If you are not into self-help books but more into a different category, this book might entertain you, but if you want something light to lift up your spirit, forget it LOL.
Did you read his other book? What do you think about this new genre of non-fiction?
