    4. Is this an autobiography or a business guidance book Looking at it, it seems to be a bit unsure and thus does both tasks in a less than optimal manner.The publicity blurb says that it is an inspiring handbook for success in business and in life and for the all important task of building a compassionate world by the visionary CEO of KIND Healthy Snacks Maybe it is an American thing, as this reviewer s first response was Who What Why Things didn t really improve after this.Some of the stories det [...]

    5. Tries to be too much at once You ve probably seen those KIND bars at the grocery store, at festivals and fairs, as a sample, etc As an alternative to candy or granola bars, KIND uses granola, fruit, honey, chocolate, etc in bars and have been expanding and in the healthy food arena Here is what I thought would be the story of the company Instead the reader is treated to part autobiography, part business entrepreneurship how to, part story of the KIND company I wasn t really interested I wanted [...]

    7. This book was pretty average in its category, but the second half was significantly better than the first I especially like the chapters on Transparency, Empathy, and Trust Those three had some really original insights that seemed fresh and new, whereas the first part of the book often seemed to have too much exposition or be repetitive.I really like KIND as a brand, and saw Daniel speak at a conference a few years ago, which is why I had this book It s a quick read, and there are some good take [...]

    16. I have to admit I was completely disappointed by this book, but the fault is mine because I read only the title and subtitle so it was my fault when I realized that, instead of kindness, the topic was about raising a small business, from the start up to Forbes Which, as a matter of fact, is not something I m interested so much So be careful when you buy this book to read also the cover.Devo ammettere la mia completa delusione dopo il primo capitolo, quando ho scoperto che questo non era affatto [...]

    17. Entrepreneur book about the finding of the food bar company KIND and the lessons the CEO learned while building his business Interesting read, not quite as fun as my normal fantasy Not as repetitive as some manager books I ve read His main theme is you can have two goals, there is no reason to compromise your values even when you are doing business You can be a Not just for profit company where you make a profit and change the world I enjoyed seeing how he balanced his values with market pressur [...]

    18. As a marketer with food industry experience and with a personal passion for sustainable living, this book really spoke to be on a personal level In business, particularly with food in the US, we feel that we have to make a tradeoff with nutrition and taste, but the AND philosophy at KIND is a very inspirational outlook for creating socially conscious businesses Dan talked a lot about his experiences as an entrepreneur that have shaped his way of running KIND and his outlook towards helping to im [...]

    19. I won this book in a giveaway, they also sent a Kind bar later It s an interesting mix of his history and the company s history however parts when they talk about the company s principles get very repetitive it took a long time to get to the part about social consciousness in the company.It would be extremely interesting to read his version of their current problem with the FDA and being transparent The situation mentioned in the book seemed minor While the book is one big commercial, it s still [...]

    20. This is another great read for entrepreneurs with a conscience who want both to turn a profit AND improve the world Lubetzy manages to deliver a heartfelt and entertaining field manual of sorts about starting and leading a company with purpose and values, eschewing the traditional for profit only mentality Ultimately, DO THE KIND THING should be added to the shelf of those who support and follow the tenets of conscious capitalism and social entrepreneurship.

    21. I won this book in a giveaway as an ARC.Overall, this was a decent book The stories Daniel tells about his family and his struggles starting his company were the best part and made him seem very real However, a lot of the book felt like it was repeating itself I felt like he is pushing the reader to understand how fabulous a company KIND is It is a good read if you re an entrepreneur, but I was hoping for .

    22. Overall, a good book There were parts early in the book that were slow to get through, as the book flip flops from autobiography to business development However, as the book concludes and you see the whole picture, the autobiographical parts seem fitting It was eye opening to read just how long it took to get KIND off the ground Reading this book has solidified me as a consumer of his products.

    23. I enjoyed the story beyond the KIND company and the introduction to their healthy products which we have begun to consume It s so nice to find something that doesn t have all the chemicals and additives and they are delicious to boot Another step in the greener, healthier lifestyle we are pursuing.

    24. My wife loves these bars and has always felt this way I always bought them for her AND never knew the story behind their company After reading this book, we ll forever be loyal customers to their products While other companies let circumstances force them into choosing between two seemingly incompatible options, people at KIND say AND.

    25. Great story of focus, drive and creativity to be KINDThis is is a great book to help understand how a purpose truly defines a person and an organisation, so as to ensure it achieves its goals The story of KIND is a great example for everyone on how to approach making a difference through purpose.

    26. As not a consumer of KIND brand, I didn t know what to expect coming into this but really enjoyed it Daniel s story from humble beginnings to the daily grind of going door to door to make his first sales is inspirational in itself But to keep with his core message of genuinely spreading kindness throughout the world is truly admirable.

    27. win Will read and review once received.This was a pretty interesting book It took about two days to read I think many people will find this book to be interesting and useful The book is mainly about entrepreneurship It also touches on integrity and commitment Overall, a decent read I plan to recommend to friends and family.
