Defying Gravity, 3 July 2011
Defying Gravity is a worthwhile, easy and fast-read. A unique concept; to tell a story where each chapter takes you through the stages of bringing a new business idea to life in the competitive real-world but through Tony's life and struggle. The hurdles and barriers are true-life and every new initiative has a different balance of negative forces that seek to defeat you. Common to all and particularly true is the trade off that Tony's wrestles with; his all-consuming passion to make a success of his new concept versus keeping one's family on-side so that relationships survive, when he's never available. We've all been through that one and some relationships don't come out the other side. The added value is that the authors summarise at the end of each chapter and focus you on how to deliver success, step-by-step. If you're in the business of bringing the new to life then this is the book to both motivate you to keep going but also with relevant thinking that would be good to take on board.
