"You don't have to be a manager to realize that no one likes being told what to do. Yet lectures are still the main way we try to get people to change their behavior. Fortunately, social learning academics have been studying alternatives for decades. Patterson and his fellow consultants have now collected their findings in this engaging, example-rich book." - John T. Landry, Harvard Business Review

Highly recommended this book, the change is inside each person, this book will provide the guidance and tools to make the change stick.
Their basic idea is implementing the ideas of deliberate practice, flow, some of Robbins's material, and others into the concept of influence. Its a smart, quick read. A must for any leader. There wasn't anything mind-blowing per se (if you are up-to-date on the social science books) but still an important read to create and implement change. I took 10 pages of notes in a 300 page book which is above average for me.
It is a fun read if you wish to influence anyone, anywhere in business or life. I know I will come back to this book again to gain more knowledge in the future.
