Find Your Why is the follow up to Start with Why, the global best seller and the subject of the third most watched TED Talk of all time. With Start With Why, Simon Sinek inspired a movement to build a world in which the vast majority of us can feel safe while we are at work and fulfilled when we go home at night. Now, along with two of his colleagues, Peter Docker and David Mead, Sinek has created a guide to the most important step any business can take: finding your why.

Liked the format of the book and the practical guide to understanding one’s why. At times it felt the examples given were too cliche’, but generally a good guide.

Good read but very female oriented at times

The book is well written, and flows well, but at times it is very female oriented and makes male generalisations that are stereotypical which although some might be true, alienated a male reader.

Introducing Audible's Thriller of the Year: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil, performed by Joanne Froggatt. In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life...until Aiden returns.

I reas this book in one weekend with only one pause. Loved the narration and the story although predictable (read many crime novels), is credible with enough clues on the way so you can solve the puzzle together with the narrator.
