3.0 out of 5 stars I love Gary but was a little disappointed in this book, May 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Thank You Economy (Hardcover)
I really dig Gary, and have walked away from his talks absolutely inspired and charged up. I felt the same way reading Crush It! - ready to run out and implement his ideas and conquer the world. Furthermore, I felt I had really learned something new and had something to go out and do.

I was really looking forward to the Thank You Economy, and hoping that it would be as great and as inspiring, and ultimately it fell a little flat for me. Maybe its because a fair bit of the material is recycled from thing Gary has said in talks. Everything he says in the book is good information, and I don't disagree with any of it - but in the end I didn't feel like there was a lot I didn't already know. In a lot of ways, I feel like TYE was a prequel to CI! rather than a sequel. CI! said how to do it, and TYE said why you should be doing it. Well I'm already doing it, and am already convinced I should be doing it, so in the end TYE doesn't do a lot for me.

But in the end, I bought TYE because I love Gary and his brand, and in that way I am buying it as a Thank You! to Gary.

I heard that Gary was thinking of writing a book about forming partnerships and filling the gaps in one's skill set with other people. I would love to read that book, and hope it is the next one he writes.
