This book is well written and very nicely organized. Norville first defines respect and how it starts at home, how it can be taught in a family, how it works in a marriage or a friendship, how it functions in the workplace, how it's lack can affect both a school or business, and how an individual can work on their own self respect. She uses examples from research and from the lives of people she knows either personally or through her work on Inside Edition. The chapters are clearly marked for ea...more

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Matthew 7:12

Many of us grew up with this being one of the first known rules. The golden rule. The one you do not break. We learned this rule as the rule of respect in my home. And you gave respect to others not expecting it first either. To this day I have had a healthy attitude about respect. As I have help raise many lil ones, I have said yes Mame and no Sir to them. I tell them please and thank you. That is how they learn to say these things...more

Deborah Norville, best known as the anchor for “Inside Edition”, believes in the power of respect. She also believes it’s one of the most effect, free tools that we have for improving our life, achieving our goals and helping others do the same.

I thought this was a good book, but it wasn't about Deborah Norville's experiences with respect. I thought she would use more of her life examples. However, she relies on some very fascinating people (some famous and some not) for her examples. It was very well researched and thought out. It does lack in some analytical components though. I enjoyed how she categorized it into subjects such as business, school, relationships, etc. This was a basic primer for respect. I would feel comfortable in g...more

A good book and a good refresher course in values. Gave me a lot to think about and to work on for myself. It seems Respect as a basic, core value in ourselves, our families, and our culture has been lost. This was a good reminder that it, as all values do, begin with the individual.

This was a book that interested me. The topic seemed interesting to me. It was interesting, just I found most of it didn't apply to me as I don't own a business, have no kids and am not married.
The best chapter for me was the last chapter on self-respect.
Marc Page
Very thought provoking examples and viewpoints on showing respect in the office, in schools, in the family and in life in general. If everyone read this book and followed half the principles it would make a huge difference in this world.

An important topic and some very good points but Ms. Norville exaggerates some points and makes some leaps of logic to driver her point home.

Heard Deborah Norville as key note speaker at convention. I believe she has proof that Karma is real. Will let you know.
