I wanted to like I Love You More Than My Dog, I really did. I love the premise of the book, and I think that Jeanne Bliss has some very good ideas about how to orient a company towards customer satisfaction, earning their love and loyalty along the way. However, actually reading this book left me rather disappointed.

First, the good. Jeanne's message about how decisions company make reveal what and how they think about their customers is a powerful one, and she gives plenty of examples of how tho

Below are key excerpts summarizing the main concepts advanced by the book:

1- "Your decisions reveal who you are and what you value...When you make a decision, it results in an action. And the accumulation of those decisions and actions become how people describe you and think of you. It becomes your "story.''"

2- "The Five Decisions Made by Beloved Companies: DECISION 1: Beloved Companies Decide to Believe. DECISION 2: Beloved Companies Decide with Clarity of Purpose. DECISION 3: Beloved Companie

I reported in my BetterBookClub.com report for cj Advertising that anyone who is in a client-facing job position can really learn from this book.Rather it is a Sales Clerk to a Brand Manager to PR and Social Media Mangers. I would also recommend this book for anyone who is wanting to start their own business-rather it be a full-time venture or a small job on the side because without customers, without customers no business will succeed.

I enjoyed this book from a business stand point, but I also

Good, concise case studies of how "great" customer service looks across different business models. The intros to each chapter could feel a little preachy, but the book is laid out to be a discussion tool with the final chapter summarizing the challenge questions from the rest of the book, and so the pulpit-style messages leading into the case studies wasn't a huge surprise. Overall it posed some thought-provoking questions and would be a great tool to help any business examine how they approach ...more

I really liked this book because it showed great customer services driven responses to increasing loyalty of both employees and customers.

I would recommend his book to anyone who wants to make a greater impact in their organizations and believes that this only will be achieved when they learn ...more

I rated this book highly because I think it lends itself well to starting conversations within the workplace / organization. The format is easy to read. The questions she asks organizations to think about are challenging. Do business' really put their customers first? Good stories and great for discussion.

I picked the book from the library only because the cover and the name sounded funny. And I thought "Why not?" Turned out to be a good read. I enjoyed reading the examples; they supported the idea quite well!

It all seems to come down to the Golden Rule, "Do onto others as you'd have done unto you." And I think all companies should read this book. It's a refreshing view on how to keep customers. Loyalty is earned!
