My only suggestions to this book would be the following. Some of the main points are highlighted at the end of a paragraph that you just read and it gets a bit repetitive. It would be really neat if they included them at the end of the chapter as a summary. Second, I got really sick of the dotloop references. I know the author is proud of his company for implementing this concept (and he should be) but when the company is repeated so many times, it makes it sound like a sales pitch which is not something I welcome in a book I purchased. Even with these two suggestions, I would still gladly buy this book again and say it is one of my top reads. Thank you for taking the time to write this book and reinforce how important it is to see our customers in a way that will ensure our future success.
