Gold Gato, April 5, 2014 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
This is one of those business books handed out to employees at companies where such books get handed out because each change of leadership requires a new bible to be read by the Kool Aid drinkers. It seems to serve a purpose for employees who love to talk about themselves, which is about 98% of working Americans. There are Samurai Games and Mineral Rights conversations, but I basically lost interest in the self-absorption.

I wonder if anyone has completed a fully researched comparison of the rise of these books and the corresponding decline in customer satisfaction. As we spend more time at work focusing on the angst of the modern-day worker (your baby is ugly, deal with it), the poor customer is ignored. I'm sure the customer would like to have a lovely 'fierce conversation' with someone, anyone.

Book Season = Year Round (whoosh your hair and drink your Starbucks)
