2.0 out of 5 stars Ummm. . . pipes are round, not flat., March 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The bristles look nice and full in the picture, like a pipe cleaner should. But when it arrives you'll discover they only stick out in two directions. Can't tell if that's the way it was designed, or if spending months in a package just flattens them out. Either way, if your pipes are flat, this will work great. If your pipes are cylindrical, however, like mine and everyone else's in the world, you'll need to work a lot harder to get everything out.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish this book had been written 20 years ago., March 8, 2015
Remember back when you first started your career and you couldn’t wait to get to the office because the work was so meaningful and fulfilling? No? Me neither. That’s because for the first decade of my working career, I was just trying to earn a living. The next decade I was trying to achieve "success," whatever that meant. Now my goal is to do something truly meaningful. It never occurred to me you could do all three things at the same time. I wish this book had been written 20 years ago.

I should have listened to the other reviews. This didn't fit, so a complete waste of money and time (took over a month to arrive).

5.0 out of 5 stars No more excuses, April 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Have you ever wanted to read the whole Bible but were too daunted with the time commitment? Or maybe the thought of having to slog through the denser parts of Deuteronomy for weeks at a time kept you from even starting? If so, this book is your solution. A daily path through the Bible (in summary) that only takes a few minutes a day. Each month you’ll cover some parts of both Old and New Testament. Plus there's an inspirational introduction for each month written by motivational speaker, Mark Bowser, to keep you coming back. He’s even included questions to ask yourself to help make sure you learn the key messages. Yeah, this pretty much blows all your excuses.

5.0 out of 5 stars My sheet of paper rocks!, December 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
You know those 10% of people at work who, when you meet them, hand you a sheet of paper with their personal values and leadership philosophy? I've always admired them for having their act together enough to even have a personal leadership philosophy, much less write it down and share it with other people. The problem is, even though I admire that 10% of people, I'm rarely impressed with what's on their sheet of paper. Usually just a list of vague platitudes and corporate buzzwords nobody would disagree with, but neither would they be inspired by them. Well after reading Mike Figliuolo's book, I'm now part of the 10% that has a personal leadership philosophy. Except my sheet of paper rocks! Thanks Mike!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique storytelling tools you won't find in any other book, October 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There have been over two-dozen widely published books on business storytelling in the last twenty years. I've read them all, and this is one of the best. Most cover and recover the same or similar ideas. Craig Wortmann offers some refreshingly unique tools to save (the Win book) and recall (the story matrix) exactly the right story at the right time. And he offers a simple yet insightful method to determine when you should tell stories (high-stakes communication) versus traditional communication methods. If all you want is to be convinced why you should be telling more stories, buy one of the other 19 books. But if you want to actually to find, develop, and USE more stories in your work, this is one you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like having a one-on-one conversation with a world class sales coach, October 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It turns out, to be a top salesperson, you don't have to be a pushy, drama voice-coached egomaniac with a power handshake and a Ph.D. in Powerpoint. (Thank God! Some of us actually have a chance.)

"Acquiring new clients is simple, but not easy." Author and professional sales coach Mike Weinberg explains his simple methods for hunting and closing new sales opportunities, and a not-so-sweet-sixteen list of the top reasons why people fail at it. (How many describe you?)

This book is so well written, it's like having lunch and a one-on-one conversation with a world-class sales coach! Excruciatingly practical, down-to-Earth advice from a guy who knows. No academics. No "pump you up" cheerleader sales hype. No Jedi mind tricks. Just unconventional wisdom with a dose of common sense.

His template for developing a no-miss sales story is worth your time and money all by itself.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT 14"x11" as described, December 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Amazon product description describes this water panel as 14" x 2" x 11". It is not. It is 13" x 1.5" x 9.75". If you need something closer to 14x11, you might need to order the panel #12.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: may cause difficulty sleeping, October 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Have you ever been so engrossed in a book that its characters and scenes start showing up in your dreams? No? Me neither. That is, until I read Daniel Dorr's Kissing Kilimanjaro.

I was nauseous from altitude sickness, exhausted from four days of hiking, and shivering from sub-zero cold. But the biggest battle I'd been fighting all day was a mental one. `Don't quit!' I told myself. `You can do this! Just a little bit farther.' But just as I thought I was winning the mental battle, I started losing the physical one. I collapsed in the snow, unable to move. Is this really how it's supposed to end? But I'm so close! I fight to stand, but can only manage to shake uncontrollably. The bitter disappointment felt so real.

According to my wife, I was thrashing around in bed before I woke in a cold sweat. Realizing I had been dreaming, I looked over at my bedside table to see my copy of Kissing Kilimanjaro. I'd made the mistake of not finishing the book before going to sleep. A mistake I wouldn't make again.

Am I interested in climbing a mountain like Kilimanjaro in real life? No need. I've already been there, and done that.
