The author says this book is a compliment to 'The seven habits of highly effective people' and I would agree yet my context would be that I regard Covey's 8th habit as a better book than the 7 habits.
The four mastering your own work practices of this book are great and include references to 'deliberate practice' yet not 'deep work' or other works of substance in this genre.
The three mastering working with others I found confusing as descriptors and I had to work hard to get to the substance.
About 45% of this book is research appendix, bibliography etc etc.
This book for me is too perscriptive, I prefer more how I could apply proven principles e.g deliberate practice, radical candor, essentialism, the last two of which are not referenced in the book
