What I Loved 

What a fun, cute little book! Together is Better had drawings on each page and they are adorable.

It is written as story about three friends, following along with them as they create their dreams.  

“A vision is a dream – it will disappear unless we do something with it. Do something big or do something small. But stop wondering and go on an adventure.”  THIS!!! I am a firm believer in this. We need to just step up and do SOMETHING.

We always believe that we have to do something huge and impressive, yet we don’t. We just have to get off our butts and do something!

“We achieve more when we chase the dream instead of competition. There is a difference between companies that have internal politics and companies that have purpose and cause. The people inside the companies that have purpose and cause. The people inside companies with politics are fighting against themselves. The ones with purpose are fighting together.”

This is something that a lot of people struggle with. I always laugh when I play games with certain people in my life. They are so obsessed with what everyone else is doing and then they stop paying attention to themselves. And then they always lose.


 

What I didn’t love

The price was high for such a tiny little book. And while it was a cute book, it was not amazing. I did not love it.  

I had really high expectations for Simon Sinek but this book was a disappointment. The story was not that clear. I struggled to follow the point of it all and then had to laugh at the end when there was a section where they wrote, “It was such a joy to write this book – to share a little inspiration in such a simple format. That said, when we were done writing it, we realized that some of the quotes and illustrations had some nuance to them that was lost in this format. So, we decided to share a little more about some of the ideas. Hope you enjoy” Seriously?? I would have recommended just rewriting the book and making it a little more clear.  

And did I mention that the book was scented? That felt gimmicky.

Who I would recommend it to

No one. 

Would I read it again 

No.
