Remarkable! is a easy, yet concise, presentation of the uses of Axiology (the study of values, value constructs, and value creation). It is a simple read, written in the form of a parable. My only complaint on first reading it is in the amount of jargon you must learn to follow the process. Repeat readings of certain areas help!

Axiology is the study of values, but also their impact on a person's thoughts, beliefs, decisions, and performance. Robert S. Hartman, PhD, is considered "the father of m

A fanta-riffic read!
Excellent content - many clear pathways exist to apply the material to any organization - whether for profit ( entrepreneurial , corporate ) , non profit ( volunteer/charitable ), school, or governmental.

The book would be a 4 1/2 star -- rounded *up* to 5 stars in this instance due to how many times the highlighter came out and tweets were sent to pay forward the information.

A definite 'add' to any self directed library.

Thought this book matched the title, remarkable. I love reading story format or parables and this book does an excellent job teaching you how to bring value into your life and the lives of those around you, whether it's the workforce or your home life. Anyone working in a team setting I would highly value the information in this book.

Some excellent insight on transforming the culture of an organization and working to create value rather than extract it from people and situations.
