5 Temptations of a CEO-> Click On Picture to Review Or Purchase this Book!
This is my top book for the month. I believe every CEO, Manager and Leader,
coach, etc. should read it. In my opinion, this book is key to the success
of any business. The information in this book will help you realize the 5
most common temptations. And I can almost guarantee that when you read this,
you will find that you have at least one of the five temptations. You may
even see yourself in the remaining 4 as a little reflection or from
experiences in the past. I kept thinking to myself while I was reading this
that I wish I read this book many years ago! I would have done so many
things differently. Patrick Lencioni does an amazing job delivering the
story and connecting the theme to the reader. It is one of those books that
you just can't put down once you start reading because you just have to know
what's next. Luckily this book is only about 150 pages so you can finish it
in a couple hours. I highly recommend it!

Amazon store. It is crazy to think of the rollercoaster ride this company
took to get where they are today. What impresses me even more is how the
team pulled everything off despite going through so many changes. You will
learn that Amazon first started just as an online book store. Later on they
added in movies, toys and jewelry. At one point they even had an online
engagement ring designer that allowed for you to search and pick the rock
and the setting. They designed it in a way that if you bought a ring at
$2000 value, the appraisal would come back valued as $2600. Jeff definitely
had a different idea about retail.
I was amazed to read about the story and the fight/race between Barns and
Nobles, eBay and many more companies.
To Pixar and Beyond-> Click On Picture To Review Or Purchase this Book!
arrived, I read it. It is an amazing story of Pixar and the revolution of
animation in the entertainment industry! It is very detailed and tells the
tale of Pixar by Lawrence Levy CFO of Pixar. When Steve Jobs called him to
come in as CFO, you would think, "Who would say no to Steve Jobs and
Pixar?". Well at that time Steve Jobs was fired from Apple and NEXT was
failing while Pixar was already an 8-year old company with no profits but
big losses. Steve put in 50 million just to be able to cover payroll.
So at the time, Lawrence had a really tough decision to make. With much
disparagement from many, (excluding his wife), he made the bold decision to
leave his current job and go in with a one hit wonder, Steve Jobs. As it
turns out, the naysayers were wrong. Lawrence and Jobs pulled it off.
