Surprisingly Good!

I read this book to learn more about the company. Yet, I quickly realize ESPN is just the medium through which Smith shares his sagaious insights on leadership. I cannot stress it enough, I learned a lot about leadership through the people at ESPN. If you are looking for a entertaining case study on leadership read this book.
