Being a generalist myself, I was intrigued by the book’s title when I stumbled on it during my self-motivated research on the generalist vs. specialist debate.
I had a hard time adapting to the style and tone. It appeared to me that the author churned out the pages in a fit of passion in a single sitting.
Red Roulette is a tell-all story of a nouveau riche Chinese millionaire about how he and his business partners had to navigate the immensely corrupt Chinese government to get things done.
The central idea of the book is that to follow through on a good habit one only needs to be 1% better every time.
The book has permanently changed how I view advertisements (most of marketing is bullshit and outright lies) and corporate greed (it’s worse than I thought).
