The Culture Code states that culture is not something you have.

It is something you do and that regardless of the size of the group or the objective, you can learn about the principles of cultural chemistry that transform individuals into teams.

About Daniel Coyle, he is a New York Times best-selling author. His book, The Culture Code, was named Best Business Book of the Year by Bloomberg, Book Pal and Business Insider. Coyle has worked alongside high-performing organizations, including the Navy SEALs, Microsoft, Google and the Cleveland Guardians. 

Personally, I find the book provides insight into why certain cultures can be successful while others fail to succeed.

Coyle, having experimented with multiple groups and cultures from different renowned companies, has extensive knowledge and insights into what makes a culture perform at its best, stability and productivity.

Revolving around three specific skills, the book shows how society works, and how each participant in a group must feel a connection and security, share their vulnerability to support each other. Finally, be able to connect their actions to a purpose every day.

In short, it is a book that is extremely useful if you are looking to learn more about human behavior and analyze the reasons for their successful cooperation.
