Top customer reviews
The book teaches some good lessons, among them - the customer is the boss; surround yourself with good people; tenacity and persistence are key character traits, and belief in your product gives you the passion to succeed - especially in sales.
The story tends to bog down at times with a bit too many characters named and explained. Bill, the founder, may pat himself on the back too often. And, today's business world is much different - but vital lessons apply today.
The last two chapters clearly capture the essence of what is needed for success....even in our times.
I think I'll have another sip of my Dunkins....
There was some sloppy editing or fact checking. The names for Col. Sanders and Kennesaw Mountain Landis were incorrectly cited.
