The IBM Competitive Edge Book Club, open to Sales, Marketing, and Communications professionals at IBM, voted and selected "What Got You Here Won't Get You There" as the Q2 2009 book selection. The feedback regarding the book and Marshall's messages was extremely positive. In the feedback from the members, we ask them the question - "What will you do differently in your job since your study of this book." Some of the replies directly from the members included: - "Brings into focus the ability to look at the things that you do day-to-day and re-evaluate what can be done, should done and what can be ignored or eliminated." - "I will stop and breathe and ask myself at least one of the questions Marshall suggests: will my comment increase the commitment of the other person or will this benefit me and my family. then after that, if the answer is "no" ... is it worth it?" - "I'll try to spend more time coaching / listening and resist the temptation to "add value to everything." - "Appreciated his perspective of the customer - loved the waiter example." - "I will be much more cognizant of the twenty habits limiting future success. Likewise I intend to use some of the suggestions for effective peer feedback solicitation. Finally, when in a mentoring position, this is a book I will readily recommend." Marshall - Thank you, your energy and enthusiasm enables us to think differently and strategically to make those changes in ourselves. Best Regards, Brien Convery IBM Global Workforce Partner and Competitive Edge Book Club Leader

From a purely economic perspective, this may be among the most valuable books in print. If every executive followed the advice in this book, we wouldn't have more than 100 million Americans who are not engaged in their jobs and, as a result, productivity and innovation would soar. In this book, uber-executive coach Marshall Goldsmith shares his insights about the most common habitual behaviors that prevent leaders from reaching their potential and how to overcome them. We all have these blind spots that others see but we don't. It's part of the human condition. In this book Marshall provides the best description I have ever seen of the most common blind spots. Marshall provides thorough explanations and illustrates his points with compelling anonymous examples from his work with high achievers. Reading this book is the next best thing to having Marshall as a coach.

This volume should be read by many managers, self appointed leaders and so-called executives who ignore the fundamentals of what makes business work: it's not the mechanisms, but ones' sensitivity to people and the manner in which we behave. Further, Goldsmith's care in suggesting that these techniques be tried at home are wonderful! He's humorous, experienced, caring and obviously passionate about helping others. Short read, great content!

The book from Marshall Goldsmith is nice. Unfortunately the quality of the audiobook copy provided through Barnes & Noble is bad. It has repeating sequences at the end of most chapters/tracks. Sounds as if ripped from scratched CD in very poor quality.

I thought the information contained in the book was worthwhile. However, I think the author spent a lot of stories that were not necessary to drive home the points. The headings meant a lot. But instead of spending 10 pages describing, a paragraph or two would have sufficed. For this, two stars get deducted.

This book is full of irony. It starts with an excessive number of blurbs extolling the expertise of the author, continues to advise the reader that s/he has a big ego problem and needs to think of others, and closes by informing the reader that author cherry-picks his clients to guarantee his success as a consultant. Are there points that will resonate with those who have experienced interactions exemplified in list of managerial flaws? Yes. Is the advice given reasonable and to the point? Yes. Will the people who really need the advice in this book every read it? Highly unlikely.
