Audio Book Summary

The inspirational bestseller that ignited a movement and asked us to find our WHY

Discover the book that is captivating millions on TikTok and that served as the basis for one of the most popular TED Talks of all time—with more than 56 million views and counting. Over a decade ago, Simon Sinek started a movement that inspired millions to demand purpose at work, to ask what was the WHY of their organization. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, and these ideas remain as relevant and timely as ever.
START WITH WHY asks (and answers) the questions: why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?
People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it. 
START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who have had the greatest influence in the world all think, act and communicate the same way—and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.

    I'm listening to this in 2023. Underlying message is definitely valuable and worth remembering, but unfortunately it's padded with more anecdotal rather than factual fluff leaning heavily into examples relevant to late 90's and 00's that in the current world feel dated. In contrast with books such as Dale Carnegie's 'How to win friends and influence people' that was published in 1936 and still feels timeless, this book does a poor job of explaining it's ideas in a way that's relatable to everyone. I recommend instead finding a summary or short explanation of the book.

    I loved it and i recommend it for everyone to listen to discover how much rely upon himself is an awful mistake. then attractive other people as friends to know about them is still much better.

    It’s not that I didn’t like the message. I liked that but I really think the book was repetitive and he could’ve said the same thing in like an hour.
