Infinite Game – Simon Sinek
Recommended by Matt Hunt
"Absolutely loved Simon’s new book, Infinite Game. He uses game theory to shine a light on the mindset of business leaders in the world today and identifies the pitfalls of finite mindedness in the infinite game of life and business. If audiobooks are more up your ally you can grab a copy from Audible narrated by Simon."
Simon Sinek is back, and he’s better than ever in his book The Infinite Game. In his previous book, Sinek focused on finding your WHY, but now it’s time to learn how to adopt an infinite mindset. So, what does that mean? Sinek explains that while there are fixed rules in infinite environments, like a game of football, in business or even life, the rules are fluid. There are no winners or losers, only those who have a long-term vision and those who don’t. Grab a copy if you want to learn about The Infinite Game.
