I loved this book. I love the "old, country wisdom meets cutting edge technology." Pickens' ability to tout his successes and admit his failings are character traits I appreciate. I learned more than just his story. I learned about the history of energy and perhaps more importantly, the future.

T. Boone Picken's illustrious career of rises and falls makes for fascinating reading. The insights from a man who has seen it all and earned the title 'the oracle of oil' turns into results in valuable lessons for anyone who wants to read them, even if you aren't going to manage a hedge fund anytime soon. Another book I bumped into this week and devoured because it's a fascinating exploration of the skills that lead to business success through leadership is Squawk! - How to Stop Making Noise and Start Getting Results
