I borrowed (and subsequently kept*) this book before my trip to Egypt. This read was as life-changing as that trip was. If "Rules for Renegades" was the roadmap to the destination, then CCO was the outline for what to do once I got there! *I had permission to keep it :-)
This book actually found me... I was looking for something to read that wasn't like the books I normally read (Marketing, Self-Help, Nerdy stuff...) So this came at just the right time, with the right dust cover :-) I will admit that it was slooow at the beginning, but as you dig deeper into the book - all the things I thought were slow, were SO perfect with the rest of the book. By the end I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to get to the end. Very good surprise ending!
I think because I am a fan of Jay-Z and Dream Hampton... that I am supposed to like this book. That's not looking good right now... I'm still reading it, but it feels like I'm reading 'Hood Shakespearean Prose' ---- and that's not a compliment. Putting it down for a minute to focus on Red Queen... Jury's still out.
