    I thought this book was very good. I saw some things in a different way and changed some of my ways of looking at things.

    Great dialogue; very convincing and reassuring text. I felt liberated by these authors; reassured in fact, that I am not the only manager who feels that when people aren't performing they should be encouraged to recognise that fact. Concentrates on correcting the management focus, from the weak to the strong performers. Makes the actions appropriate rather than misdirected. Wonderfully written in no fuss language. Why didn't I think of writing it? After all, they have only said what I, and many other managers have been thinking!

    Helpful to me as a manager of six in an assisted living/healthcare facility. Lots of valuable tips and information.

    I seldom take the time to write a review of a book or any product for that matter, however I truly think this book is deserving of that honor.

    It is a great book for anyone in, or looking to get into managing. It makes a case for psychological management, but through the use of stats and numbers, thus capturing the often numbers minded attention of managers.

    As well as pointing out what GREAT managers do differently from the mediocre or poor managers of the world, it gives tips on traps that many managers fall into.

    I would highly, highly recommend this book. I've see the tools provided in this book used, and the results are wonderful. I've also seen the tools not used, and the traps fallen into, and they are disastrous.

    Do yourself a favor and pick up this book. You won't be sorry.
