Very insightful.

This book is strong on motivation and ideas, but a bit over the top in some areas. Mark Stevens can come off as pretentious at times.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in continuous personal improvement.

An interesting take on management and motivation. Many examples that give way to good perspective. Though nothing notably astounding, this book is like having a great talk with a wise mentor.

I guess my biggest problem with this book was the pompous, arrogant guy that wrote it. Yeah, you're great-you have solved all of the problems for all of your clients. I did get a few tidbits from it.

I read this right after I quit a job with a terrible manager. The book made me feel better in confirming that I was working under someone who had no idea how to manage.

In the spirit of Marcus Buckingham's "First Break All The Rules", Stevens challenges us to wage war on conventional wisdom!
