Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

A revolutionary approach to long term business strategy from the best-selling author of start with why. 

The New York Times best-selling author of Start With Why, Leaders Eat Last, and Together is Better offers a bold new approach to business strategy by asking one question: are you playing the finite game or the infinite game? 

In The Infinite Game, Sinek applies game theory to explore how great businesses achieve long-lasting success. He finds that building long-term value and healthy, enduring growth - that playing the infinite game - is the only thing that matters to your business.

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.

Good book!

Just completed reading this book, The Infinite Game.
The author is popular on the speaking circuit and we would have seen and maybe shared also, some videos of his, on WhatsApp.
The book is good, fundamentally suggesting that many situations don’t have a finite end, but in fact, there is an ongoing and continuous life to it, and we err when we think, plan and act, with some finite goal or destination in mind, in such cases. This applies to organisations as much as to countries.
You would find ideas similar to those in Built to Last by Jim Collins (read this many years back) or Antifragility by Nassim Taleb.

Does excellent job in sharing what ethics and culture means

Simon as usual he is brilliant in explaining how infinite mindset can change culture, build trust and do good for society. Changing competitor to worthy rival was also new perspective to continue playing life long game

Visionary and Courageous

Even though Simon Sinek has built on the original work of Professor James P. Carse, he has managed to package a message of courage and a vision that would not only be more sustainable and valuable to society, but to any business as well. The fact that Simon narrates the content himself is a major plus - it is not a dull reading, but full of passion and conviction. The content is thought provoking on an individual level but should also be shared and considered at a business leadership level. The life we live and the activities we engage in to sustain our journey requires a different mindset than the one most of us where taught or conditioned to accept. "Life is a journey, not a destination" the familiar quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson goes, but soon we may be saying to each other : "Life is an infinite game" as per Simon Sinek, when we want people or corporations to focus on advancing a just cause, building teams that trust, to study and welcome worthy rivals, be prepared to flex and have the courage to lead. This is the insight: we must stop aiming at a fictional "destination" where we can be declared "the winner" - there are no "winners" in business or of life!

A beacon of hope for a meaningful business world.

Struggling to find a path for a meaningful way of doing business, or going about making you life's legacy? Read this!

Simon does it again with an in depth look of what the business world should be, and could be. An idea that would pretty much make this a better world for all if the business world and the nations leader would embrace.

Good concept, but didn’t need a book to explain it

Big fan of Simon, but I found the book long winded and found examples of the infinite game to be too simplistic and/or contrived.

Back on form

If you were a fan of Start with Why but disappointed by Simon Sinek's Leaders Eat Last or Find Your Why, then he's very much back on form here. I just can't get enough and highly recommend.

Can't wait for the next book.

Another great book by Simon Sinek. I have read all the books by him and they are very inspiring and calling for change in society and us.
Simon - If you do get to read this review. After reading your first book "Start With Why" I quit my job in the industry that I worked for more than 10 years. When I read your books and recommend them to others I say - just be careful as your world view is about to change.

Repetitive

I can't say it's a bad book. But beeing honest, it's nothing new, the ideal is the same as with all Simons books and the premise doesn't change.

why 4 stars then? Because Simon is an idealist just like myself and I agree with with his ideals.

I'm beginning to think he's just milking it a bit too much.

Sublime

Not only for business people, but for everyone. This book opened more my mind to the meaning of life. Everyone with a spark of good inside could get inspired and think onwards what choices they make for improving their life and especially the lives of others in the long term. This book would teach me patience in life working for a better tomorrow.
What I've thought before, it's actually here too: that better is better than the best. The process in getting better and sticking to our Just Cause might be long (actually being infinite) and not pleasant at all times but it's more worth it than to look only for the short-term material success.

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.

One trick pony

The author seems to make a career out of stating the bleeding obvious. Of course, common sense is rarely common, so his first book had some value perhaps.

But for me his last two have been pointless, boring and totally unnecessary.

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.

A vital read

Perfect for anyone interested in leading or being a part of an ethical business that works with a people first mentality (so, everyone hopefully). Could not recommend more highly. Absolutely changed the direction of my life and clarified so many anxieties I have about the state of business today.

very inspiring

I have been meaning to read this book since hearing Seth Godin talk about it in his podcast. I'm very glad I finally did. Being a co-founder of a purpose driven business, it was great to hear an in depth perspective on what that can mean, and why it is important. Sometimes the business advice I've received has seemed like it is suggesting that leading with a just cause is primarily good because it is good for growth. The message I got from The Infinite Game however, is that a just cause justifies it's own existence, and though it often leads to growth, growth and profit should never be the drivers. I much prefer the latter take.
