    "The One Minute Manager Does Sales"

    In Mike Goss's "Breaking Through Walls", you will find a parable in the spirit of "The One Minute Manager" with a generous dose of kumbaya.

    If you're a supportive manager wanting (or in need of) moral reinforcement, this book will be just what the doctor ordered. For you, I give it five stars. Otherwise, this book won't change anyone's mind. For them, it's only two or three stars.

    Aimed squarely at the sales function (and perhaps the CEO's office), this story is a bit over the top with some plot elements can only make you smile. Of course, that level of enthusiasm may be perfect for the intended audience. (You weren't expecting a twist ending were you?)

    Regarding Mr. Goss's narration, I say: "UGH!" However, self-narration was probably the only feasible way to create an audio book, so I can't fault him for it. Nor, can I deduct anything from my overall score for his narration. Who knows? Some may even like it.

    In the end, I'm glad I read it. I applaud Mr. Goss's effort and hope it's a success for him and brings success to everyone who reads it.

    Overall - Four Gold Stars
