"Beyond Bullsh*t shows why the little moments in organizational life matter so much and how to make the most out of them. Culbert has written the wisest book that I've ever read about what it takes to build a humane and effective workplace. And, this little masterpiece is a joy to read because every page oozes with Culbert's own experience, straight talk, and charm." -- Robert Sutton, Stanford University, author of The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't
"I read this book by randomly sampling pages. Every sample was a treasure! This is a wise and wonderful book!" ―Tom Peters, Chairman Tom Peters Company
"Great, enduring brands demand (and respond to) straight talk from their customers, employees and stakeholders. Sam Culberts book brings that message to life." -- Howard Schultz, CEO, Starbucks
"Culbert, a professor of management, points out that 'telling the truth' can be just as one-sided and manipulative as the self-serving posturing he calls 'bullsh*t.' To send an honest message that actually reaches listeners, the teller requires a preestablished relationship of trust and a listener who is willing to improve. The teller needs to offer only the truth she sees and to frame the message according to the listener's perspectives and goals. If these conditions are not present to at least some degree, Culbert says, people are better off just posturing. Still, for those willing to make the effort, he adds that reciprocal straight talk can be immensely valuable for an organization and individuals' careers." -- Harvard Business Review
"Beyond Bullsh*t is a wonderful book! Clever and clear, it's a tour d' force on how to circumvent bullsh*t and when to talk straight at work." -- Walter Nord, Distinguished University Professor, niversity of South Florida
"Culbert nailed it. This book is a masterpiece and every word is so true. This is what he's been writing about and teaching his whole career. And, that's not bullsh*t. He's always stood for direct, valid, and candid human relationships. Those who took his straight-talk to heart flourished as a result. As Bennis says, in his foreword, it is indeed his 'master stroke.'" -- Beverly Kaye, CEO/Founder Career Systems International and Co-Author of Love 'Em or Lose 'Em: Getting Good People to Stay
