Habit 6

On We Blog the World, a “blog network dedicated to global storytelling,” an unusual review of “Whatever It Takes” — unusual in that it looks at the book through the lens of management strategy:

Rarely do you read an example of entrepreneurism at work where you get motivated by how a fellow entrepreneur deals with the challenge of blind alleys. … Geoffrey Canada’s persistence in chasing down problems is entrepreneurship in action.
