I have to say, this was a refreshing book in the sense that it was fun to deal with a business book that got its point across through a fable, rather than just spitting out facts.
This book deals with what Swanepoel feels are 7 essential skills every business person should develop and master in order to succeed in business. And while the skills are nothing you haven’t learned, he makes them interesting by relating each skill to the characteristics of an animal.
I do have to admit, at times this book got a bit hokey and I did an eye roll once or twice. It can get a bit cheesy for the cynical. Overall though, this book is a good, quick read for when you need a business refresher.
