Guy Kawasaki’s book Reality Check is strange business book. It does not follow the traditional formula of taking too many pages to fill out a simple theory or business principle which could be covered ina fraction of the space.
Reality Check is a bunch of short chapters on a diverse range of topics. Since I’m not in start-up mode I skimmed much of that content. It was the chapters on the workplace, social entrepreneurship and the no-asshole and similar chapters which I found most interesting. I also liked the chapter on the art of innovation – short yet packed with valuable wisdom. That’s what I like about this book – short chapters, to the point and no wasted ink.
Guy is a smart thinker and an even better communicator. This is the kind of book to use as a reference or reminder when needs arise.
