Let me add here that I'm typically a slow reader. Reading is not at all a passion of mine, but in my personal drive to always strive to be a better leader, I committed myself to reading a new book every month. My goal is to read a chapter a night to get through a book each month. So with that in mind, let me say this:
I read QBQ! in a single day!!!
Once I started, I could not put it down! The book is super easy to read, and the concepts delivered by John G Miller are absolutely top notch. The book did two things simultaneously to me: Punched me right in the face by identifying "stuff" I've personally been doing and didn't even realize it, and also it gave me great leadership focus on how I can better serve those I have influence over. And I realized that you don't have to be a person in a leadership role to gain extremely valuable insight by reading this book...EVERYONE BENEFITS!
If you're a parent either with a desire to be your best for your child(ren) or maybe are struggling with a difficult child in accountability & entitlement issues, this is a must-read. If you're an employee and are wanting to better meet/exceed your goals, or possibly hoping to gain attention for a promotion, this is a must-read. If you're wanting to personally grow just to be a better person, this is a must-read. If you're an employer/business owner, not only is this a must-read for you, you need to make this a must-read for your entire organization!! This book is that good.
John's got a really great website with a lot more books available. And if you do a little digging, you'll find that he didn't just write a book, he absolutely walks-the-talk. He actions truly follow his words.
Yes, I'm reading a book a month, and many of them are very, very good and I've grown so much from each. But this one so...got to me...that this is my first/only book review ever, because I felt it is that important. I highly recommend this book and know that once you've read it too, you'll be posting your first book review if you haven't already done so. Best wishes!

I felt a profound change in my demeanor and attitude after reading this book because it really made me examine the way I thought and interacted with others. And every 6 to 12 months or so, I'll start feeling like I'm blaming others for things more than I should. I'll pick up QBQ and read a few chapters (or just the whole thing again!) and will feel "refreshed".
I love one thing John wrote about in the middle of the book too regarding "there's probably someone you're thinking about who should read this book" (paraphrasing). It was true! Although I know it helps me, there are certain people I interact with who would benefit from it greatly! In all honesty, anyone and everyone can benefit from this. Plus, it's so affordable and such a quick, entertaining read, how can you not afford to own it?
Lastly, I'd like to plug the QBQ Twitter feed and e-mail subscription. The QBQ concept is laid out beautifully in this book, but John sends out occasional e-mail stories exemplifying the QBQ mentality. It's a great way to keep QBQ fresh and alive. Great stuff!
