Absolutely fabulous. Not only is this book data driven (always a favorite of mine) but it offers a refreshing and challenging new way of looking at the employee/manager relationship. Breaking some of the conventional "rules" (ie: spend more time with your best people, don't try to fix weaknesses), they offer explanations for what really works to drive super star performance.

“...every time you make a rule you take away a choice and choice, with all of its illuminating repercussions, is the fuel for learning.”

53.0% "I love data, things based on data, and genuinely meaningful analysis. Not only does this book have all that but it's both (a) backing up things I already believed and (b)challenging other things I believed. In short, it's making me think. I see a LOT of connections and applications."
