Bryant is wise not to present one interview after another, in alpha or chronological order. Rather, he divides the material into three parts (Succeeding, Managing, and Leading) and cherry picks from the interviews whatever is most relevant to the given topic or insight. For example, consider this extended excerpt during which he shares what he learned about "passionate curiosity," the subject of the first chapter.
"The C.E.O.'s are not necessarily the smartest people in the room, but they are the best students -- the letters could just as easily stand for `chief education officer.'
"'You learn from everybody,' said Alan R. Mulally, the chief executive of the Ford Motor Company. `I've always just wanted to learn everything, to understand anybody that I was around -- why they thought what they did, why they did what they did, what worked for them, what didn't work.'
"Why `passionate curiosity'? The phrase is more than the sum of its parts, which individually fall short in capturing the quality that sets these C.E.O.'s apart. There are plenty of people who are passionate, but many of their passions are focused on just one area. There are a lot of curious people in the world, but they can also be wallflowers.Read more ›
The first 100 pages were very interesting and I didn't want to put the book down, however as the book went on the subject became a little boring 240 odd pages on the exact same subject can become boring at times and I found towards the end I was only reading to simply finish the book..
However the book offers a useful insight in the world of CEO's and Leading, managing and success (which are the three sections the book is divided into.) The Book also offers some very very useful information and tips that are almost life changing however also offers some irrelevant ones.
I did find the sub-title 'How top CEO's made it, and how you can too' rather misleading, it suggest how top CEO's have succeeded in business or life in general and and how you can also succeed in business and life, but actually its how CEO's have become CEO's and how you can also become a CEO. - misleading.
However overall the book is good and insightful, offering general business tips to enthusiastic men and women wanting to succeed in business!
