Inspiring

If you want to hear the word Ubuntu listen to any speech from Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. If you want to get an insight into how to live with the philosophy then read this book.

This wonderful, easy to listen to story takes the African philosophy/concept of Ubuntu and translates it into real life experiences that everyone can appreciate. While it is mostly centred around a business environment the lessons are appropriate to every sphere of life.

I seriously encourage everyone to read it. Only a short book - a lazy morning - but the message is profound. I took notes.

The rest of our days, are the best of our days!☆

It is time for humanity to understand the mightiness of their being. We are each a representation of our species, and what our species is capable of. This book is going to help change humanity for the better.☆

Mostly tepid and simplistic

It’s not bad, just not good.
The subject matter; life lessons for work and at home drawn from an African ‘way of living together successfully and with happiness’ is great stuff.
This book might be a good intro for someone in the protagonists position - but I can’t even remember his name now because he was just your stereotypical American middle-management shill - overworked and unobservant.

The story, at least in audible form, just comes across like “See Dick. See Jane. See Dick and Jane. See Dick Run.”
Patronizing and childlike are probably too harsh a term but the subject matter, the point of Ubuntu, deserves more consideration and a deeper exploration into how it applies across cultures.
This story just doesn’t do it.
