To put it briefly, Uncontainable is the best book about creating corporate culture since Danny Meyer's Setting the Table in 2006. In fact, along with Meyer, John Mackey, Tony Hsieh, Herb Kelleher, David Neeleman, and Howard Schulz, (and, as a philosophical precursor, Steve Jobs), Tindell is a member of the growing cadre of company leaders in the Conscious Capitalism movement. I highly recommend any business owner with an interest in efficacious corporate culture put Uncontainable on her reading list. - Tim Askew, Inc.com

The first thing that captured my attention as we shopped, we the attitude of the employees. Every single one of them was excited and passionate about their job. Their enthusiasm was inspiring to me. As we shopped, the wheels began turning in our minds as we dreamed about one day building a home and filling it with theses amazing products.
Since that day, every time I am within 20 miles of a Container Store, I make an effort to stop in and "soak" in the atmosphere. And to this day, my experience there has always been the same.
When I happened upon this book, I knew I just had to read it. So, I bought it and almost read the entire thing in one sitting! As I learned the Foundation Principles this company is built upon, it was no wonder to me why the employees were so happy! The Container Store is a fantastic company, that is filled with love, and genuinely cares for its employees. It is a place where I enjoy spending thousands of dollars. It's easy to spend money with a company that brings so much joy and life into the world.
Going with one of the the Container Store's own philosophies, the is a 3=1 book. I highly recommend it to anyone. It is sure to impart life, love, and hope to its readers!
