In this unique and groundbreaking book, business consultant and New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni turns his sights on the most important organization in our lives—the family. As a husband and the father of four young boys, Lencioni realized the discrepancy between the time and energy his clients put into running their organizations and the reactive way most people run their personal lives. Having experienced the stress of a frantic family firsthand, he and his wife began applying some of the tools he uses with Fortune 500 companies at home, and with surprising results.

Listener Opinions

    " Matt and I read this together and it has changed so much of how I now see things. It has put so many things into perspectives. It opens up with a husband sharing with his wife that if his clients ran their business' like they ran their family, they would be out of business. I have felt that way so often in our family. I have felt on so many occasions the disorganization and chaos that surrounds life, because we all know life just happens and we never know what lies ahead. I am so happy we found this book. I am not a self-help book lover! I actually loath reading them, but this one is different. He spins it so that it doesn't feel like a self-help book, but it really does HELP!! If you feel like your family can be frantic at times, READ this book!! We are now implementing these tools into our marriage and our family. It has already MADE a world of difference!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/29/2014

    " Highly suggest this to families/couples who want to see their families function well and thrive! So good and a really easy read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 1/25/2014

    " Good stuff, but not nearly as gripping or inspirational as Five Dysfunctions of a Team. Most of this book is stuff that we were already doing, just not as intentionally as he recommends. It would be great to put this stuff into practice, but I suspect that my wife may not want to sit down ans systematize our family dynamics. Think I'll just take the big ideas and apply them as I am able. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank | 1/16/2014

    " Great book for providing perspective and prompting reflection. Two years after reading it, my family still uses the lessons and strategies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Davis | 1/15/2014

    " This book caught me at the right time. It told me all of the things I knew but realized I was not applying most of what we needed in our family. This book armed me with practical advice to get come balance back in our worlds. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jodi | 1/15/2014

    " Good information & things to talk/think about conveyed in a most cheesy manner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 1/10/2014

    " I read just about everything that Lencioni writes. They are usually a story that illustrates the book title followed by some practical applications. This book is geared towards the family and discusses some things to get the family back under control. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 12/30/2013

    " This is a book I want to own. I would like to take the concepts and apply it to our family -- a great way to take a look at what is important in your life and family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karina | 12/29/2013

    " I like all of Lencioni's work but this book hits "home" for me. A wonderful fable about how to manage the chaos in the family with context, clarity and purpose. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte Dungan | 12/10/2013

    " I just got this book out of the library, again. I like all of his books (how often do you read business books for fun?) but this one is most applicable to my life. He shares his insights as stories that are immediately applicable to my own family. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 11/30/2013

    " Seems like a pretty straight forward system to prioritize your life! The question "Can I do it?" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Pratt | 11/5/2013

    " ...actually waiting for it to arrive! assigned my by biz coach. will say more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 10/29/2013

    " Quick read. Simple yet powerful ideas for setting priorities for families. Have already gone through the three questions with my wife and am looking forward to seeing what happens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 10/16/2013

    " Typical use of a business goal(or family goal) told as a parable. The story is weak, but it does its job and i am interested in trying out it's recommended strategy for a little more calmness and focus in life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy Anderson | 7/7/2013

    " Focusing on the next 60-90 days makes it easier to see the finished project/product. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joni | 5/17/2013

    " Interesting story about applying business strategy to a family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Carretto | 6/22/2012

    " Typical Patrick Lencioni book with a good story but even better principles. Good book for the people who just want to slow down a little bit and realize that the most important part of life is family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Moffett | 12/9/2011

    " This was a very quick read full of practical ideas. Needs time to put into practice, but could be helpful to any family or organization "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karileblanc | 8/10/2011

    " Loved, loved, loved it! Implementing strategy and business principles into your family life. Good sense practices that can be life-changing for your family! Identify where u r going and get your whole family on the same page. Running on the hamster wheel isn't going to get u to your goals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley (cnthrdlywt2bwz) | 12/31/2010

    " Lent to me. Some interesting and easy concepts to follow. Wasn't sure what to expect. Read in a day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Djs76 | 12/27/2010

    " Lencioni captures the frantic pace of young family life as effectively as he needs to in order to keep the reader interested in his solution. The book failed to compel me to embrace his ideas and execute. I might come back to it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey Williams | 2/20/2010

    " I am glad I read this book. It gives some good ideas on how to try to organize your family and keep focused on important goals. Gave me some things to think about. "
