You may already know of Simon Sinek. After all, his TED talk was very popular – the second most viewed talk in fact. His book Start With Why was fabulous and so I was anxious for his next book. Leaders Eat Last did not disappoint. I had a hard time writing this summary, because my plate was too full! I had so many notes and dog-eared pages, it was hard to pick just three bites to share.

Would recommend to all who would love to grow as leaders.
