I don't think a day goes by my team and I don't mention the words "Raving Fans" or at least discuss some concept from the book. There is no other customer service book that I can say that about.
The concepts are simple and if you follow them, and make them part of your culture, you'll be amazed at how much your level of customer service will improve. Just a few little systems applied to your business can take you from mediocre to amazing!
WARNING - You will not see the world the same again. You'll be disgusted everywhere you go after reading this book, when you see how bad customer service really is in this world.
Like many of Blanchard's books, it's a quick and breezy read. I initially read it on a flight, but it's great to go back to and reference. "Decide what you want, decide what the customer wants and deliver what the customer wants...plus one" are the primary themes.
Overall, it's fairly simplistic, common sense type material but a great reminder of how all those in sales and service should treat a customer.
When was the last time that you had a really great experience as a consumer? What did you do after? Who did you tell?
Ken Blanchard shares (in a very anecdotal way) some very compelling principles about creating and maintaining amazing customer experiences. The book will definitely challenge the way that you currently look at the customer experience and encourage you to improve.
Overall I give the book 4/5 stars because I believe the need to learn the concept of raving fans outweighs the boredom I experienced at times as I read the book. The book would have received 5 stars, however, I have to deduct one star for the many pages of character conversations that should have been omitted from the book.
