The book focuses on just 6 key points, but delivers them brilliantly in a comic book style format with very little loss in clarity. Unlike the mountains of text that other similar books tend to churn out, that take days to cover, I couldn't believe that I was able to go through and assimilate the entire book in one sitting.
The book focuses not on and endless list of specific instructions (do this, do that, bleh), but more on clarifying a few key concepts/ideas which you can apply in everyday thinking. There's no leave-your-job-and-get-rich scheme here, just pure good ideas. The first idea in the book is worth 10x the price of this book, and from there on it just gets better. Unlike other books I find myself remembering and applying these ideas all the time, they really are quite important ideas, not just fluffy stuff you read and agree with and never remember again.
Dan Pink has innovated where no one else has...there's no way you could write (or sketch!) a book like this without have master-like knowledge of the area and drive to communicate effectively with others, like he has evidently cultivated. I was inspired to look into this book from his TED talk (and then his blog, which mentioned this book), and I'm glad I did. The world needs more books like this.
