Useful concepts with a fairly realistic scenario but 2.5 stars for endorsing Meyers-Briggs; which is complete and utter bullshit.

The 6 Types of Working Genius is an incredible business read to help you figure out how to get your team motivated and in the right jobs.

This book starts with Patrick telling the story of how him and his team came up with the six types of working geniuses. It's not until the last couple of chapters that you will get the actual "meat" that you came for - Want to know about the six geniuses and how it applies to you? Skip about 170 pages. The first part of the book is fantastic, and I had the audiobook so the sass from the narrator was ON POINT, but if you just want to know how to work better... The beginning isn't for you.

The only reason I enjoyed this book as much as I did was the narrator for the audiobook. He made the book so much fun storytelling wise. The book is good and has a lot of good insights, but I don't think I would have been interested in the story without the narrator. Otherwise, I would have wanted to skip to the end to just find out what the geniuses were and how to make them work for you.

If you get to the end of this book and want to know yours... Well, go to the website and pay $25 USD and then you can know! That's the most frustrating part, but hey... they gotta make money somehow! But yeah, there's no personality test in this book. It just explains the base definitions...

Three out of five stars. Why? The model is fantastic but the book doesn't have what it advertises. Its basically an add on for the personality test.

This is actually a good example of business advice writing in that the author develops the four concepts in the context of a story that can keep the reader's attention and at a length that allows the book to be read on a weekend morning or on a plane flight/layover. However, as sensible as the advice may appear, especially regarding matters of hiring for the right cultural fit, the idea of hiring based upon those criteria still appears to be as arbitrary as anything else proposed, which is a troubling prospect given how many careers are in the balance.… (mere)

This is a fabulous book! It's easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to put into practice. I recommend it for anyone looking for sanity amidst the chaos.
