Do you think "The Goal" is a prerequisite for "The Phoenix Project"? I read it first and I feel like there are a lot of callbacks in TPP that would be missed if you didn't have the reference point of who Herbie was.

It could go either way. Honestly I haven't finished "The Goal" yet, but as I go through it I feel like it's the one I should have read first, not just because it was released first, but because it lays the foundation and yes there were a lot of callbacks like that. I feel after I read the goal I want to go back to TPP and I'm sure I'll understand it a lot better.
