As seen on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday

A New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestseller

In this book, Whole Foods Market cofounder John Mackey and professor and Conscious Capitalism, Inc. cofounder Raj Sisodia argue for the inherent good of both business and capitalism. Featuring some of today's best-known companies, they illustrate how these two forces can--and do--work most powerfully to create value for all stakeholders: including customers, employees, suppliers, investors, society, and the environment.

These Conscious Capitalism companies include Whole Foods Market, Southwest Airlines, Costco, Google, Patagonia, The Container Store, UPS, and dozens of others. We know them; we buy their products or use their services. Now it's time to better understand how these organizations use four specific tenets--higher purpose, stakeholder integration, conscious leadership, and conscious culture and management--to build strong businesses and help advance capitalism further toward realizing its highest potential.

As leaders of the Conscious Capitalism movement, Mackey and Sisodia argue that aspiring leaders and business builders need to continue on this path of transformation--for the good of both business and society as a whole.

   Amazing philosophy of business
In the United States, capitalism has been the foundation of economic success. Today, it comes under attack for a perceived lack of fairness. The author John MacKey of the Whole Foods Market explains how free-market capitalism works and contributes more to humankind than any other organization in society. The book is organized in four parts, higher purpose and core values. Integration of the stakeholder is possible. Constant Leadership is a conscious process. Culture and management are conscious and conscious. The book is a bit didactic, but I recommend the philosophy to any business leader.

   Essential
Yvon seemingly comes up with his ideas about how to conduct business in the moment, while Conscious Capitalism shows that when focused in the right way, a little foresight and planning can yield fantastic results.

   Excellent
This book is awesome! I have received lots of ideas for my own business. One of my role models for how a business should be run is John Mackey and Whole Foods.

   Totally Interesting
This book was such an interesting look at timely investing issues and explains why capitalism is so much better than anything else, even though it is limited by much of the good in the world. It has greatly encouraged my hope for the world, and I hope that many people read it and absorb it to gain positive outcomes for all involved in business.

   John and Raj: Thank You
For years, I was one of those business people who considered business as a profit-maximizing endeavor. Then I began to realize that businesses are part of a much larger ecosystem, including the planet and society. This book is eye-opening, theorizing and visionary. Let's change our destiny together!

   Excellent backstory
In the wake of Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods, read from beginning to end with considerable interest. Several important ideas, the most important probably being that a business should be about creating value, not maximizing the wealth of shareholders. How value is shared amongst stakeholders, yet no magic formula exists. The story of Whole Food, with its highs and lows, shows the limits of the CEO's intent. At times it feels like a book written by a guru. Four stars so far. Four very deserved stars.

   Good and doesn't live up to expectations
After reading the intro and the first couple of chapters, I had high hopes for this. Unfortunately, it becomes a little preachy about diets and other topics that could have been avoided. Finally, this could have been cut about 100 pages shorter.
