We love books that are quick reads and yet give us a profoundly different way of looking at things. According to the book, much of the trouble that we have with our work, our lives, and our relationships stems from living in self-deception and, while blaming others, failing to see that we hold the power to “get out of our boxes” and do the right things for the right reasons.
The book is yet another in the leadership fable genre but we seem not to tire of them. We have been learning our most important lessons from stories presumably long before the brothers Grimm.
A Peeler Associates client recommended this book to us because of its potential to completely shift one’s way of looking at things. After we read it, we agreed.
