Not great. Not terrible. The overall message of this book is a pretty good one and somewhat helpful. It just felt like that the book could have been condensed to a blog post or article of a thousand words or less and would been more powerful. Smith has one main thing to say and the rest was cheerleading with random crudity to make the point louder.
It just didn’t work for me. You will be better served by reading “Linchpin” by Seth Godin and “Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell. I don’t recommend “The Flinch.”
