Disclosure I have done business with Koch Industries for over 30 years The copy of this book was given to me by a Koch employee It is the only publication by Charles Koch I have ever readNote I have since read another Charles Koch book Good Profit which I have reviewed as wellForget all the vituperative broadsides against the Koch brothers the accusations of their funding the Tea Party the cover story on Bloomberg Markets Charles Koch is a genius when it comes to business He had to have something going for him to plough through undergraduate and post graduate courses at MIT and to build the Company beueathed to him into the second largest privately held concern in the world What is most refreshing about this book is its candid admission of his own mistakes missteps and lessons learned Too many business bios adapt the Donald Trump style swagger the Here s How I Triumphed in the face of incredible odds and became a titan What Charles Koch does in this book is chronicle his business career how he built his company who he trusted how he motivated his employees In the back section of the book he provides an appendix of the businesses that Koch is involved in but an even longer summary of the businesses that Koch has exited He continually harkens back to examples which highlight the simple principles of integrity honesty and fairness While many out there today may not care for Charles Koch s politics and convictions he deserves the right to vote his conscience and expound his philosophy alongside other philanthropists from across the aisle like George Soros But again read this book only if you are willing to ignore politics and can focus on business and personal advice
