    "This is NOT related to the OMM series"

    I ordered this expecting to get a nice overview of the One Minute Manager series. I had read the first 3 books and thought this might cover those 3 and the 4th. The recording starts out with JESUS, and talks about preachers and more Jesus. Don't get me wrong, that's fine, just not when you're looking for a business recording or something appropriate for work. Skip this purchase and buy the books!

    "Jesus thrown in your face"

    I didn't like this book. I expected to have new management ideas presented. Perhaps something to help me become a better manager. But, the first thing that comes up something like this:
    Managers should take a lesson from the best manager the world has ever known, Jesus of Nazareth.

    I don't mind religion, but when I pay for a business advice book, I don't want to be preached a sermon. There may be some business ideas in the book, but make no mistake: This is a book on religion, not on management.

    "Bad literary style"

    The principles presented are excellent but I didn't like the author's "Character A reminisces with Character B about a scene from years ago word-for-word to teach the lesson to the reader". It seemed very forced and distracted me from what I was trying to learn.
