I came across this book through a reference from Daniel Pink and his Pinkcast. This was when Ion it into my book list. It sat there for a couple of months, then after attending an event in Vancouver, Real Talks, I was listening to the Q and A portion at the dinner that was hosted for the VIP guests.
One person from the audience asked a question about his partner.
He asked, “how do I get my partner to agree with me?” One of the panelists answered “read Radical Candor” This intrigued me enough to check my book list and low and behold I have already marked this as a must read book.

This book teaches you the importance of being a person that gets things are done by example.
After reading the book I checked out the talks that Kim gave at Universities, you can find it here, and it will give you the outline of the book.
She uses great personal story telling and really gets to the heart of what it takes to be a partner/boss/employee.
This book can also apply to people who are struggling in their personal lives with relationships.
