LESSONS FROM THE HAPPIEST MAN ON EARTH: A BOOK REVIEW [EPISODE 197]

November 23, 2021

In this episode, I am reviewing the book the Happiest man on Earth. The book is a great read. I read it twice in three days. I urge you to read it.

The author provides a number of excellent lessons. While these are not intended to be leadership lessons, nearly all of these lessons are good lessons for leaders.

During the presentation, I talked about Eddie’s Ted Talk. You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clguD970hSc

I also talked about Sir Nicolas Winton--the Man that saved hundreds of children from the Holocaust surprised by them decades later. You simply have to watch this 2 minute clip.

It was part of a British show called “That’s Life” and it was broadcast in 1988. I am a grown man who has not cried in years, but I am more than willing to admit that this clip brought tears to my eyes.
