To be honest l don't remember the last time l was this impressed by a "How To" book; and l read a lot of them. Its an amazing read and l would recommend it to anyone who wants to put their life and career in order. This is the first beauty of the book, it appeals not only to those who want to build business empires in the strictest sense of the term, but also to those who want to build "empire careers"; we can't all build business empires; this book recognizes that and makes provision for it. Its second beauty is that more than anything else it teaches integrity. The emphasis on saying no to corruption, living on the principles of truth even if it hurts and staying true to your word, make up a business person or executive with integrity traits that are often absent in both the public and private sectors. Third it emphasizes the importance of faith in God, something that l personally believe in - if your dreams don't require you to have faith and lots of prayer and fasting; they are clearly not big enough. The downside of the book however is the editing. I think the editor should have been more meticulous in integrating the Facebook posts so that phrases like "i will discuss this more in my next post" or " as l said in my last/previous post" are nowhere in this book. This for me spoiled the flow of the book, which is a lot more than just a collection of Facebook posts. Also its a book, its supposed to have an introduction and a conclusion, its the simplest of demands/expectations in any book. To increase the value and marketability of the book, the editor should also have considered putting reviews by other reputable Fortune 500s or billionaires on the Forbes list just for quality enhancement and brand endorsement. The Masiyiwa brand is that of excellence and so we expect nothing less. There is so much l could say about the editing but l will stop here lest l take away from it. This is an amazing read. Anyone that doesn't read this book - its their loss. If this doesn't inspire as well as challenge you, nothing else will.

    This was the best read I have had this year! I read and learn from Strive’s daily class and Facebook posts and I would say this was more or same as what gems he provides on Facebook. This book relates so much to any African thinking of starting a business!

    This is a fantastic read. There was so much value in this book and i would highly recommend it especially for African entrepreneurs. The principles in this book are universal and will apply to anyone and in any business environment however it provides a unique african perspective that is rarely on offer in books such as these.
