from Jacksonville, FL United States
After working indirectly for the govt. for about 5 years, I decided to quit and make art for a living (if you could call it a living). A good friend suggested I read this book, and I'm glad I did!
One of the resounding themes from this book, for me, was the notion that success is not what everyone else says it is. The bottom line and how big a company is should not necessarily be the measuring stick of success. This book is about being successful by doing something you love and are passionate about, sticking to your ideals, simplifying things when possible, and doing what you do with high quality and excellent craftsmanship. I think if more business-folk read this book, we'd see more innovative, inspired companies crop up!
