The First Billion Is the Hardest: Reflections on a Life of Comebacks and America’s Energy Future was the sixty sixth book of 2015, which I enjoyed.
Study those that you aspire to be. T. Boone Pickens has an impressive record which probably anyone on the planet would like to emulate or recreate. Very happy to have grabbed a copy of First Billion is the Hardest. Pickens reviews his entire history of where he came from, where he found success, the failures he learned from, and explains what motivates his decisions along the way. He has an exceptionally impressive story; what he has done in the area of big oil, energy, water, and even his massive investments in Oklahoma State University’s athletics are reviewed.
This was a great book. I think what I really enjoyed from First Billion is the Hardest, was his discussions of his failures, especially what he learned from them and what he did after them. This solidifies in my mind the rapidly learning leader which I’ve worked toward developing into.
The First Billion is the Hardest was a fantastic book! Read it!
