"A friend gave me this book, perhaps because he thinks I'm time-challenged. In any event, I loved it - substantive, fun and funny. I give it my highest recommendation." --Steve Pagliuca, Co-Owner, The Boston Celtics
"A unique approach to addressing really important topics. I've now read two Skinny books and enjoyed them both. I heartily suggest this book for the time-starved who want their 'how-to' books quick and actionable - basically everyone I know." --Mike Goss, Managing Director, Bain Capital
"It's my angry belief that most self-help and education book writers get paid by the word. Three and four hundred page books that could have been done better in 50 pages. Not so with "The Skinny On" series. These books kick rears and take names. Using entertaining writing, stick figure drawings and a comic book style layout, they use simple stories to quickly convey valuable information. Highly recommended. Author Jim Randel has created one of the best, most interesting series I've seen in a very long time." --Myles Knapp, San Jose Mercury News
