Very much enjoyed the sequel to Hug Your Customers. I would read anything Jack Mitchell wrote and his books are truly a must for anyone serious about improving their business, their team, or themselves. I put his principles to work every single day, at work and in my private life.

Recommends it for: business owners
Includes how to screen during the hiring process for people who are enthusiastic, loyal, and team oriented, and who fit well with your other employees.
