    "Should have read it much earlier in my career!"

    If you have only one take-away from this book (and there are many great pearls), it is that positive reinforcement is determined by the result, not the intention. Just because you think it is a positive reinforcement or encoragement, in the eyes of the receiver, it might not feel that way. I wish I'd read it much, much earlier in my career.

    "fantastic!"

    this is a great book - it's a different way from looking at management from many other business books, which tend to emphasis who you are more than what you do. it gives ideas that you can implement immediately. easy to understand. highly recommended.

    "Great Introduction"

    if you're new to the concept of Performance Management, then this book is for you. I would have liked to have more examples and "steps to accomplish " sections.

    "Sounds like a trailer for a murder mystery"

    Great book, the narrater did a good job but his voice was not pleasant, reminded me of a trailer for a murder mystery. I learned a lot from this book however!

    "Brilliant text woefully rendered"

    Aubrey Daniels is IMHO the most brilliant, exciting management guru on the scene. I use his classic every week as a reference for everything, especially teaching and classroom management. It saddens me to hear his sparkling prose flattened by a heartless narrator with no feel for what he is reading. Every sentence is read like the last - deadpan with a slight hint of sarcasm, precisely the wrong tone to take with something so profoundly positive. Even though the words are virtually the same, the book was better, so much better. Get the book.
