    "Pretty good"

    Some useful tips and ideas like the scorecard.

    For large businesses it's great, but for sole traders far less so.

    A few really good ideas came from it, but lots of lists make it hard to follow at times. Fine if you're working at a desk whilst listening, but not for in the car etc.

    "outstanding information, will be buying the book"

    jam packed full of systems and methods to apply to your book I quickly realised I wanted to write everything this down but in the end just listened through and decided I'd buy the book. honestly I'm not even going to buy the kindle version, I'm going to buy the paperback because I want the information on paper. before you buy the audio book or papepr book you can check on the Eos worldwide website for a bunch of free resources but they mostly won't have context without the book.

    "Solid material"

    Because it is a process driven system the material is dry
    The reader is monotone and this doesn't enliven the content
    The EOS is a commendable system and worth implementing

    "Really enjoyable and actionable!"
    What made the experience of listening to Traction the most enjoyable?

    Loved this book. It might captures the key concepts from many other famous business books, and it puts them into practical steps which are easy to implement. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to scale their business by systemising everything!


    What other book might you compare Traction to, and why?

    the 12 week year - as it's about getting stuff done - strategically.

    "Best business & culture building book I've ever read."

    I've read almost all of the top books written about building teams, scaling out organizations, building culture, etc. (Rockefeller habits, start with why, good to great, etc. ) and this book tops em all by far.

    "Good nuts and bolts system for management."

    I think the system is really good and well laid out. Somewhat repetitive and would probably be more useful with me hard copy of the book. But otherwise enjoyable and useful.

    "Great business advice"
    What made the experience of listening to Traction the most enjoyable?

    I listened to this while the startup I was working for was going through some hard times. The more I listened to it, the more I realized we were on the wrong path. When attorneys spoke to employees about their ideas on how to fix the company, I felt like I was prepared to make a good case for some change.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I got what I wanted out of this book and don't feel a need to read more - however if I find myself working for another startup company, it might be time to read it again.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Pierce – was your favorite?

    Lots of examples and anecdotes. Without it, this would have been a very boring book, but the plentiful real-life examples made it easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing


    Any additional comments?

    It makes a good point that company mantras might feel cheesy, but they are needed. If you're going through a list of ideals you want your employees to follow, you will soon realize what you want in a person that you hire - and you will realize the employees you have that don't follow your standards.

    "Love the concept"

    I love all the concept. Can’t wait to implement the structure level 10 meeting in our dental office. We have meeting but it is a hit and miss because of crazy schedule. This align with my consultant accountability preaching.
    Creates less drama in the organization.

    "MUST READ book for any organization!"
    Where does Traction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    When it comes to systemizing your business and implementing accountability programs, this is THE book to read up on.


    What other book might you compare Traction to and why?

    The E-Myth, Built To Sell, and Work The System.. All books are aimed to structure any company to become more effective and impactful


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Mostly when it was covering the accountability systems to keep everyone on track and held accountable


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously, regardless if your company/organization is small or big, this will help you take control of everything and have a clearer path to success
