There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

I feel it was saying the same thing over and over again. A small blog could have been enough. There was not enough material to make it a book, just repeating the same argument in different ways is not enough.

Interesting story but biased and repetitive

It's a good book but a bit biased at times, in my opinion. It could be summarised in an article as it just keeps repeating the same thing with different words or in different contexts. Good for leaders in high positions, medium good for entrepreneurs starting their endeavours.
I like Ray. He seems like a hard worker, kind hearted man.

This book grew out of a series of letters to my daughter concerning various things - mostly about money and investing - she was not yet quite ready to hear. Since money is the single most powerful tool we have for navigating this complex world we've created, understanding it is critical.

Excellent book for anyone interested in reaching financial independence. A bit too focused in USA, but understandably so

What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us sapiens? In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going.

Great book. Very honest and direct. It makes you reflect on many things including the role collective imagination plays on reality
