The Infinite Game
Books | Business & Economics / Leadership
From the New York Times bestselling author of Start With Why and Leaders Eat Last, a bold framework for leadership in today’s ever-changing world. How do we win a game that has no end? Finite games, like football or chess, have known players, fixed rules and a clear endpoint. The winners and losers are easily identified. Infinite games, games with no finish line, like business or politics, or life itself, have players who come and go. The rules of an infinite game are changeable while infinite games have no defined endpoint. There are no winners or losers—only ahead and behind. The question is, how do we play to succeed in the game we’re in? In this revelatory book, Simon Sinek offers a framework for leading with an infinite mindset. On one hand, none of us can resist the fleeting thrills of a promotion earned or a tournament won, yet these rewards fade quickly. In pursuit of a Just Cause, we will commit to a vision of a future world so appealing that we will build it week after week, month after month, year after year. Although we do not know the exact form this world will take, working toward it gives our work and our life meaning. Leaders who embrace an infinite mindset build stronger, more innovative, more inspiring organizations. Ultimately, they are the ones who lead us into the future.

"The latest book by Simon Sinek, author of Start With Why. I watched a talk of his with Impact Theory’s Tom Bilyeu and had to read this book. The idea is that good business and leadership, like life, is infinite. You don’t win or lose, like most people think. You try to create things that are evergreen and provide meaning to people. I am a huge fan of his take on being a leader."
"Possibly the best book on business I have read. Completely changed the way I look at things. "
