I have a *slight* addiction to self-help books, so when I saw this sitting on Jesse's desk, I grabbed it and read it. (It's his. It's his required reading for an online seminar he is to attend.)

I enjoyed reading it. It has several good reminders tucked throughout about practicing patience daily. I also appreciated the lesson about not (repeat: NOT) demonizing or demolishing (or even "justifying") the competition. Finally, the authors recommend starting the day from a place of introspection.

I had to do a book review for a class and this book was short. It was actually really good, too. Really put ethical behavior in the work place in perspective.

Excellent book, easy to read, and full of knowledge that every worker should take in consideration prior to start working. I completely loved it and I am going to read it again. it is only around 150 pages.

Recommends it for: People who are in leader positions

I read the book rather than listen to cassettes, anyhow this book gives simple examples why acting ethical makes more sense than "cheating"... If you have Christian beliefs than this book should not present things that are revolutionary... in the end ethics is not something we invented ten years ago, if we invented it at all... The book is short so whether or not it is a good read is really irrelevant since one can finish it under an hour. :-) ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick-read and kept my attention throughout. At first I thought the scenario was a little cheesy as the authors used it to articulate their thoughts on management, but ultimately it was very effective and the story made all of the advice seem more natural. I'm a college student, not on a track to get involved in business necessarily, and I truly enjoyed the read and took a lot from it that I will be able to use in my life and leadership roles. ...more

Somewhat overly simplistic but contained several good ideas. I found it a bit strange that this book was written in "parable" form, but it seemed to work. It is mostly an overview, leaving any hard-hitting or controversial points alone. As short as it is, it is definitely something to read if you are interested in ethics and/or management. ...more

This is a little more my pace than some of Blanchard's Minute Monkey stuff. The CEO of the company I worked for, now retired yet still acting Chairman of the Board, of my employer recommended this book. I firmly believe in karma. This book shows you how karma is very predictable and reactive - not hocus pocus at all. ...more
