Bland and unremarkable 8 Jan. 2004
By Jason Hendrickson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Kawasaki. Hindsights is, however, a disappointment. The stories are bland. The insights are cliché - Never give up. Be Honest. Believe in your dream.
Each chapter is about a different person and their wisdom and breakthroughs. However, the chapters are too short and too superficial to draw you in and make you care about the person, which makes their revelations seem unremarkable. It's a great idea for a book, but it's poorly executed in this offering.

Most influential people are screened for life lessons 8 May 2007
By JN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read a lot of Kawasaki, in print and in his Blog. He shares a lot of wisdom, and in the volume of writing there are many jewels of wisdom in this survey of some of the most influential people of modern times. Guy says, "A CEO has two main jobs: to live in the future and to pick good people."

Good job, Guy.

Guy Kawasaki is awesome! 21 Jun. 2009
By petesea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think that Guy Kawasaki is awesome! In this book, he takes a unique approach and interviews a disparate group of individuals from sushi chefs to CEOs for their "hindsights." There is no secret formula in this book that if you do X, Y and Z you will be successful, fulfilled, happy, etc. But, there are a bunch of wonderful insights into life, business and personal and professional well being. I love inspirational quotes and I got a ton of them from this book.

Guy's Emotional Side 12 Aug. 2002
By "robbbeal" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is in my mind Guy's best book. Paradoxically, it may be his best business book!
