    1. Endless Encores, Ken Goldstein’s follow up to his gripping novel This is Rage, is a business parable worthy of an encore in its own right. The author uses storytelling as a vehicle to impart worthwhile philosophies on how organizations should conduct themselves to succeed in business over the long haul. The approach is engaging and informative, as well as inspirational. The narrative involves a chance meeting in an airport bar between two executives—Paul and Daphne—one who is searching for [...]


    2. Imagine yourself finding a guide book on how to succeed in business with a clear formula for carving a consistent path of professional "wins" in a stack of novels. Endless Encores presents challenging business issues and the steps to overcome them in a delightfully entertaining story with likeable and relatable characters that engaged me from cover to cover. I've tried reading yawn producing business articles to glean the practical advice they offer, but I'm a music lover and Endless Encores res [...]


    3. Endless Encores: Repeating Success Through People, Products, and Profits is a must for anyone who is in a leadership role or aspiring to become a true leader! Ken has wonderfully laid down the foundation and the true recipe into what it takes to make a comeback when things look bleak and to have continuous success, no matter the company or industry.Once I started reading the book, I couldn't put it down, highlighting all the wonderful nuggets along the way. And the "Pop Quiz"?I just love it! Wha [...]


    4. We have all come across that special person, "The Sage", at an unforeseen and unplanned meeting place, that provides guidance, knowledge, and wisdom so profound and impactful, that it changes the course of our lives forever. Through the interactions of the characters in this book, Ken Goldstein provides a road map for lifelong repeatable success, that has been tested through real life experiences. If you have the courage in your professional journey to embrace the path the book outlines, ("Peopl [...]


    5. This is not a book to read - it is a book to study. On the surface it's a parable about a "chance meeting" that instructs us on how to look at product releases and creating that "next big thing" in our careers. It's far more than that. If you study the principles Ken Goldstein shares here you will find a master template for building your first success in life and business, and your next, and your next. I've printed out the 10 question quiz from the end of the book and have set myself the challen [...]


    6. Whether you are managing product or project teams, if you care about excellence and what really matters, this is a must read. There are valuable nuggets of both practical and inspiring wisdom throughout the book. The interaction between the two main characters makes it hard to put down and the structure of the book makes it easy to refer back to the wisdom throughout. I highly recommend it!


    7. Ken Goldstein’s first novel, This Is Rage, was a fictional thriller that I couldn’t put down until I had read it cover to cover. This is his second novel, and while I’m guessing his intent was not to write another riveting page turner, Endless Encores was also a quick read that grabbed my attention and didn’t let go until the end of the book. The narrative takes place over the course of a few hours between an experienced CEO who has seen it all in the business world and a young VP of Pro [...]


    8. Ken Goldstein in “Endless Encores: Repeating Success Through People, Products, and Profits” lays out the plan for continuous success. Goldstein knows what he is talking about; he’s been a successful executive for multiple Fortune 500 companies and startups at Executive and C-level positions. It’s a great book for managers at all levels whether in the executive office or a floor manager with only a few direct reports. It’s a philosophy everyone can grasp.The concept of discovering, recr [...]


    9. I’m not a businessman, but business fascinates me. Ken's books have educated me about business, startups, venture capital, new wealth, executive jets, and the inner workings of modern corporate machines. My wife and I have known Ken for over twenty years, and we know he knows the workings of business, tech personalities, venture capital, and corporate intrigue from the inside and does great job of passing that experience, knowledge, and insight onto people outside the corporate world — peopl [...]


    10. Endless Encores is a business guide disguised as a novel. It is 90% dialog, most of that being exchanges between the "old hand" and the aspiring businessman. This makes it pretty easy to read, and it gives the author some opportunities to insert some levity and otherwise make the book more enjoyable to read than if it were simply someone saying "I think you should do this and then you should do that". The focus of the story is Paul, who has been at a company that had a very successful product, b [...]


    11. Wow! The best business book I have ever read. Pure genius it is so simple. So easy and compelling to read and digest, I actually finished it over a 24 hour period (highly unusual for me). Unlike most business books it has a lifetime of learning and business philosophy condensed into a few pages instead of one or two nuggets stretched out into hundreds of pages that end up boring you to death. There is so much information I think a lot of people will need to re-read it several times to fully bene [...]


    12. I must confess that I have put down many business books before finishing them because I get bored. I cannot say that about Endless Encores. With a story told through a series of vignettes, Ken Goldstein keeps the reader drawn in and conveys a series of lessons that we can all draw from. I don't care if you work for yourself, or for a large corporation, understanding the importance of people in your business is critical to your success. Each chapter is an easy read and, for those who have trouble [...]


    13. What if you had a few hours to spend with a successful business person? What if she willingly shared her wisdom with you, as well as the mistakes she made in her career? Would you listen? Would you learn?In Endless Encores, Ken Goldstein (a successful business person himself) imagines this very scenario. Two people stuck in an airport lounge. One has the wisdom of years in business. One is searching for the keys to success. Ken brings us into this dialogue, teaching us several important lessons [...]


    14. I usually get frustrated with business parables and skip to the summary at the end, but not with this one. As I would have expected from Ken, the characters are believable, the narrative compelling, and the wisdom revitalising. So much so that, in the end, you are left wanting to start your own version of the lead character's notebook as you continue on your own quest for endless encores. For me - end-to-end - it was like being back in Ken's LA office, learning again from his experience through [...]


    15. Endless Encores: Repeating Success Through People, Products, and Profits is an astute distillation of the author's philosophy - "People, products, profits - in that order!" - delivered through an easily-digested parable. Brimming with exploration of human dynamics (team and customer), market wisdom and more than a few calls to self-reflection, this book is an essential read for the entrepreneur, the founder, the manager and the aspirants to any of those roles. Make it part of your business libra [...]


    16. I found Endless Encores to be both highly engaging and enlightening. This parable presents an accessible grappling with the relationship between business forces, creativity and success – and the importance of prioritizing people and values. With a conversational-style and compelling story, the concepts really stick! Ken Goldstein brings to life philosophical wisdom and offers clear, real-world application. I especially appreciated the quiz in the epilogue. It is a powerful (quick) must-read fo [...]
