あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin.

The CEO of Disney, one of Time’s most influential people of 2019, shares the ideas and values he embraced to reinvent one of the most beloved companies in the world and inspire the people who bring the magic to life.

Robert Iger became CEO of the Walt Disney Company in 2005, during a difficult time. Morale had deteriorated, competition was intense and technology was changing faster than at any time in the company’s history. His vision came down to three clear ideas: Recommit to the concept that quality matters, embrace technology instead of fighting it and think bigger, think global and turn Disney into a stronger brand in international markets.

Fourteen years later, Disney is the largest, most respected media company in the world, counting Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and 21st Century Fox among its properties. Its value is nearly five times what it was when Iger took over and he is recognised as one of the most innovative and successful CEOs of our era.

In The Ride of a Lifetime, Robert Iger shares the lessons he’s learned while running Disney and leading its 200,000 employees and he explores the principles that are necessary for true leadership, including:

  • Optimism. Even in the face of difficulty, an optimistic leader will find the path toward the best possible outcome and focus on that, rather than give in to pessimism and blaming.
  • Courage. Leaders have to be willing to take risks and place big bets. Fear of failure destroys creativity.
  • Decisiveness. All decisions, no matter how difficult, can be made on a timely basis. Indecisiveness is both wasteful and destructive to morale.
  • Fairness. Treat people decently, with empathy and be accessible to them.

This book is about the relentless curiosity that has driven Iger for 45 years, since the day he started as the lowliest studio grunt at ABC. It’s also about thoughtfulness and respect and a decency-over-dollars approach that has become the bedrock of every project and partnership Iger pursues, from a deep friendship with Steve Jobs in his final years to an abiding love of the Star Wars mythology.

Authenticity and Humility

Through out the story it is clear that Robert is true to himself, he knows his strengths and weaknesses and shares it wit us. He exuded humility better explained in our country as Ubuntu. Wether it’s with Mr Murdock or his employees. His Values are consistent. Thank you at 62 and semi retired giving back to our youth, it resonated with me. I learned a lot. I had some of my own leadership style reinforced.

Amazing book on leadership and life lessons

If I can summarise, the book is like having a mentor that assists you through their own experience of life and business to make sense of the world, leadership together with what it takes to create a successful business. It also gives one a view of what Disney is all about. I had little knowledge to the scope Of the business and the priority of the organisation but through Robert Iger book. I can see myself as a future investor in this organisation.

Excellent book on leadership.

Such a great book for those who are career minded no matter the industry. In a world that is changing faster than ever Robert Iger succeeds in putting over that a company is not anything if it’s not it’s people, embracing technology is not optional and having the courage to push the limits is essential.

The Ride of a Lifetime was also a great listen.

It was really interesting to get an insiders perspective on the recent history of Disney. And valuable to get to know Robert Igor, one of the great corporate leaders of our time.

Good, but what it is felt a bit missleaded

I really liked the book and the reader. It's an interesting story about his work life. I did not feel like I got a lot of lessons in creative leadership. There are some tips and he explains how he made choices, but I feel it's more his personal experiences than concrete advise.

interesting but far to much self praise. .

It's an interesting story in terms of his journey but i expected more insight into various career roles. He doesn't talk enough about day to day difficulties or challenges and learnings from mistakes. The appendix was of most interest to me - maybe i wasn't the target audience and should have researched the book more before hand.

One take away- avoid getting in the business of selling trombone oil

There is a lot to take in with some brilliant nuggets of knowledge. Good leadership isn’t about being indispensable, it’s about willing to let others step into your shoes.... I wish we all saw the world from his eyes.

A great teaching story about tenacity and risk taking

I enjoyed every minute of this story behind one of the most amazing rises of a giant in the entertainment industry. This book perfectly compliments the Steve Jon’s biography. I can’t praise the writing and the reading of this book enough.

more of a big self pay on the back than lessons

it's a inserting story but there aren't any real lessons in it, just a what Bob did story and him patting himself on the back for doing it and being a top guy.

Very interesting read

I really enjoyed learning about the world so unknown to me. It really was fascinating to learn about Disney company and the values they present. Many valuable lessons to learn here too. It is more of a story than an educational book but I think it makes it easier to understand certain decisions. Great read, thank you Bob 😊

Could have read this on Wikipedia

Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a wasted book. However, I feel like most of the information that was in this book could have been summarized on his Wikipedia page. The book lacked that edge that makes you want to keep reading, the piece that keeps you enthralled. Not disappointed that i read it, but wouldn't reccomend it to my friends

great story of an ordinary mans rise to the top

the one thing i could've used more of was a slightly deeper analysis of the creative process and what makes separates good creative decisions from the bad ones.

Great read!

Really informative book about Robert Iger’s career with Disney. Traces the highlights of a long work history. Book is well written and narration is great. I would have preferred a little more detail on some of the financial analysis and predictive models used in the acquisition process, but that’s just me.

Great look behind the curtain

I really liked this one. Quite different from other leadership/business books. Tangible insights and advice. A very interesting peek behind the curtain of the effort and process of landing a big wig job. The first chapter was incredible. Unexpectedly heart breaking. Really enjoyed this

What a great read, wonderful insights from such an emotionally intelligent and introspective CEO. Lessons on building a global Brand and keeping it relevant as disruption accumulates across its competitive landscape. Innovate or die has never seemed more relevant.

Really helps the listener to get inside the mind of a major company CEO through a time of disruption. It’s a pretty honest account with good introspection. Well read also.
