I'm Awakened

It's very rare that a book influences me, therefore it is rare that I'm able to complete one. This is one of those rare readings. I've been taken to my next level of evolution.

An infinite mindset is courage to do what is Right

Another work of art by Simon Sinek. it's not easy to write a book about build an organization with the usual cliche but Simon does a fine job. lots of interesting examples and insights. It validates the fact that all successful organizations are built with an Infinite mind set called the Courage to do what is right for the employees and customers with integrity and not what the stock market wants.

Being the catalyst for change

If you ever wondered how to make that impact this is it. At last a book on business and life that I can recommend to my team, my seniors, even my family and the whole world.

Simon absolutely rocked this book. This will and have become a starting point for all our strategic endeavors.

Wow.

This need to be the mainstream

we know or feel that the way we chase growth success or our goals is flawed and wrong, but we put our head down and tried to fit in for a long time.
Simon Sinek shed a bright light on this issue and help lead you out of it.

Basics of game theory , specially about infinite game.

Good for beginners to learn about game theory. Very basic idea. It may not be enjoyable for people who already familiar about game theory.

Another awesome book by Simon Sinek!!!

I don’t write many reviews, I have been with audible since 2014 and don’t listen to fiction, his audible books are by far the best I have listened too. Always inspiring and articulated in a way that anyone can understand. I hope to one day meet Simon to thank him in person.

Inspiring way to look at life and business

This book challenges many assumptions on what the aim of business or life should be. Many of us feel that we have to aim to be the best or aim to always win, however this achievement will only be temporary. Aimimg to be better is infinite and thus changes how you view your approach to pretty much everything. There's more to the book than what I've outlined and I've not done it justice. It's full of real life examples and case studies. I'd definitely recommend it.

Repetitive!!

Some very interesting facts, but pretty much already known facts.

It’s all great telling little stories of big big businesses, but little help to everyday employees.

I found the accent cringe worthy, and almost an American wannabe!!

Simon, your from England for god sake. Be proud of who you are and don’t pretend to be someone you’re not.

Courageous Ideas For Strong Leaders

I have always been fascinated with the concept of perpetual motivation and have strived to create visions for teams that foster a growth mindset. Simon does a great job in this book of contextualising my ambitions. A worthy read with a great punchline.

Outstanding!!!

The optimist is back.
The fact that not all of us has clear Just Cause as Mr.Jobs or Dr. Luther, the reason to find one or join one is so relatable to me.
I might join Simon Sinek’s cause to make people safer at meaningful work and be a Infinite player in life.

I think everyone should read this book and spread the idea of this optimist.

Another great job Simon, I’m one of your cause followers now.

Yet again Simon delivers

I have never before re-listened to a book. 3 times now I have listened to this masterpiece and each time I get something more from it. Simon is such a thought provoker, and a genuine genius in all that he delivers. I can’t recommend The Infinite Game more.

This is more than a book about business

As a teacher and as a religious leader, I see the application of this book as relevant to broader situations than the simple business examples offered inside. I don’t care who you are or what you do, this book is worth your time.

Purchased based on TED talk

Introduction and closing chapters were good but remainder of book was a rehash of same concept with different platitudes.
