    • This book seems like propaganda sponsored by corporate human resources departments from around the world Here is the book in a nutshell Step 1 Employees should expend all of their energy on their job without the company having to dole out equitable compensation for that effort Step 2 If the employees feel drained and exhausted and unsuccessful because they are working as a leader without a title, that is, not being giving a promotion, a raise, or real responsibilities , then blame them for faili [...]

    • I generally avoid Self Help books However, this book captured my attention because Robin Sharma decided to write LWHNT as a story of a man Blake Davis , gaining leadership wisdom from 4 people that he meets within a day The 4 people, incidentally are introduced to him by Tommy Flinn, an old friend of his father s and also the top salesman where Blake works It started well enough Tommy Flinn s character was intriguing Unfortunately, he played a lesser role as the book progressed and once the main [...]

    • While the motivational message is very helpful and definitely worth reading and considering, the story that it s wrapped up in is pretty badly written The situations are unnaturally stilted and the dialogue scripted and redundant, like one is watching a skit being performed at a sales retreat None of the characters are given enough background to forge any real connection with the reader Sharma might have done better just writing this as a straight non fiction advice book, although I suspect the [...]

    • There is a common joke shared in the place where I come from A husband once calls his wife and says, The special dish you cooked for me two days ago was so nice Can you prepare the same for me today too The wife, angry with him for some reason, retorts, Why make new There are some leftovers from the same dish Want to taste This book of Robin Sharma tastes like those leftovers stale and revolting While revolting is a strong word to use against a book which contains appreciable wisdom, the verbose [...]

    • I picked up this book because I was finding myself trapped in corporate red tape and dead ends with respect to career advancement Someone recommended this as a good book to help with thinking about leadership outside the confines of the corporate world.I like how the author presented this in the context of a story, instead of a typical dry business leadership book It s all common sense stuff, but it s nice to read it in the digestible format presented here The author takes the position that lead [...]

    • What could I say about this book It is by my favorite author.It is really amazing as I expected The way Robin represented the ideas and how he wanted to deliver the message of you can be a leader even if you don t have a title is really fantastic However, it isn t the best book he has ever written because I prefer when Robin writes directly to the reader without involving a main story and main characters But Overall, I didn t want to finish reading it This book encouraged me to stop being a slee [...]

    • Jednostavna i prosta, lako svarljiva, i nadasve veoma inspirativna Sve ono to smo ve pro itali samo razumljivije i ako malo sjednemo, i razmislimo sve je to istina.

    • Found aspects of the book kind of annoying at first The story is fictional, but the characters exist solely to be the mouthpiece of this guys motivational philosophy so it isn t satisfying on a literary level at all But once I let go of wanting the characters to be convincing and just accepted them as a vehicle to communicate this guys message it didn t bother me as much Also he spent too much time in the beginning talking about being a leader, not a victim and saying things like make this day [...]

    • well I really have so many things to say about this book Firstly, it took me 4 months to complete this Not because this book contains a lot pages, but because it is boring to the power of infinity I don t understand what was the need of bringing in Blake the great in the story when all those knowledge could have been shared without involving a fictional character Second thing, all the knowledge was given to the man on a single day I mean that was just too much I could not taken in so much of inf [...]

    • At first I thought this book was incredibly cheesy It follows the author while he meets 4 leaders who offer him tidbits on leadership philosophy It s basic stuff but also stuff we easily neglect being positive, leading ourselves before leading others, self discipline and most importantly, finding value in our work and paying it forward versus latching onto material possessions For me, much of the philosophy aligned with my faith and leading in a way that shows God to others grace, humility, forg [...]

    • Disappointed.This is not the Robin Sharma I loved in Greatness Guide 1 2 , the inspirational Robin In this book he s a novelist writing long stories with a lot of unnecessary details hoping it will inspire learn you it didn t for me.This could be a good inspirational movie or series, but a book I don t think so.

    • The Leader Who Had No Title A memorable novel to remember I m feeling tensed while writing this review, after reading this amazing book by Robin Sharma He really has his way of storytelling This book not only amuses you with a great story but also gives a fascinating way of truly living a life, of leading without a title.The story begins with a former military man Blake working at a bookstore, who has lost everything and everyone It gets hard for him to concentrate and work for a long time He is [...]

    • Let me start by saying I am already a huge Robin Sharma fan I ve read all his published works and this is one that I can has major relevance to my current line of thinking and writing Too many people are hung up on what their title or position in an organization is, rather than acting without This is a great fable of learning that can get you deeply thinking as well as the steps to take action so you really can lead from anywhere Although I may not say this is a MUST READ on my bookshelf, I will [...]

    • An inspiring read I haven t read a lot of self help books previously apart from How To Win Friends and Influence People , however I picked this up as I am currently undertaking a leadership class as part of my studies This book, while quite badly edited in places, is very readable I enjoyed how Sharma made the content into a fictional narrative This makes you keep reading The leadership advice given is practical and for extra support implementing it, Sharma encourages you to visit the website wh [...]

    • This might be one of the worst books I ve ever read It s basically an 8 10 page leadership self help article that has been plopped into a poorly written fiction novel with canned, stilted dialogue, poorly developed characters,and predictable plot It s a shame as the core leadership concepts are absolutely on target But as a work of fiction it is awesomely bad.

    • While the dialog between characters can be a little unbelievable, this is a fast great awesome read and is immediately applicable to anyone at any stage in life This one is going straight back on my to read list.

    • Decent book on leadership and personal mastery The format of being told as a fable, was interesting but got a little cheesy.

    • Me cuesta mucho ponerle tres estrellas por un lado, puede tener las cuatro o cinco porque me gustaron el mensaje y los consejos que brinda el autor Sin embargo, pudieron ser menos porque los personajes, desde mi punto de vista, son poco cre bles eso me lleva a otro punto la apuesta por la narrativa, como si fuera novela, no creo que le ayude mucho al libro Hay demasiado di logos y no permite descansar al lector Si el libro fuera escrito como Outliers de Malcolm Gladwell, otra cosa ser a.

    • 3.5, had to read the whole thing yesterday, thank you school Edit after getting through the anger of staying up late reading against my will, I cae to the conclusion that I did enjoy the book, so I m changing the rate to 4.2 stars

    • I read chapter one and i wanna get the same energy it give me once i read it , so i reread it looks like im not reaching the end soon.It is a great motivational energetic organizational book so far however ,it looks a bit utopian to me ,as we as humans need recognition to go on and give our best in real life , the rewards for good work dont always reach the right persons Now that i have finished it , i benefited from it in the context of reviving my work and life and i love the Acronyms he used [...]

    • Titles mean POWER Hmmmmbut the problem with this kind of power is that if when the title is gone, the power is gone as well Puff Like a balloon So the question now is Do titles make a person Many of you will say NOOOOOOOOd yetople DO get attached to these TITLES SoI am not going to make a deep and profound thesis on this now, analyzing the WHY s of this phenomenon, but I will just say BLAME IN ON THE EGO And now back to the bookBlake Davis is a young man, torn between the past and the present A [...]
