I appreciated learning about a company that seriously promotes dissenting opinions as well as social science experiments. Setting up the tests themselves are intersting ideas, but the audio book never mentions the sample sizes or if any experiments have been able to recreate results, so you don't know how real the implications are.
He deals with how relatively little decisions are made where the main gist is to get people to just be more open minded and less dogmatic. I would have found it much more interesting if he analyzed decision making in war where people die based on your decisions.
The book is misnamed. He doesn't define what is original or give a framework to discuss it. He takes a lot of successful people and goes backward to see how they got there implying that they are an Original because they are successful. I would get a lot more out of the author pointing out unsuccessful Originals.
Still, it's interesting to hear about successful people in a casual way. It's better use of time than reading People magazine.

I felt like the author tried really hard to prove his points and even through the chapters seems to go back and forth from previous stories told.
Oh, because he shares stories pretty much. I feel like it would make a very good blog post but a very long winded book. I've read other books and this one was hard to complete. I found myself skipping, and trust me I've read some really long boring history books hat somehow kept me reading/listening more than this one
