The life of an entrepreneur often means not having much free time, but when I do have a chance to pick up a book, it’s always something that I can directly apply to my business. The Seven Gifts isn’t about business but more so about the people we all interact with in our day-to-day life. As a business owner, I spend most of my time communicating and working with customers and employees, so David’s insights into how people function and think is invaluable for anyone who has to deal with people. The Seven Gifts, in my opinion, should be mandatory reading for anyone in business, especially those in a management position, especially those in Human Resources. David provides a foundation to understand people’s differences and ways to improve personal and professional relationships through the lens of The Seven Gifts.

Whitacre’s writing is like a series of pictures pinned to a clothesline. The wind wafts each one in turn, highlighting each gently, then moves on to the next story. I love his insight into the repetitiveness of human behavior. I knew this was within people, but couldn’t formulate it like his book has.
