    "Not bad, but not enough examples"
    Would you try another book from Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton and/or Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton ?

    Probably not


    Has The Carrot Principle turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, on the contrary, if you are looking to believe in the concept of employee recognition, they give plenty of numbers and studies that back up the idea the recognizing and rewarding employees is the way to go, however, I found the words 'study', 'research', were way overused. I just wanted to know how to do it better than I am already doing.

    This book is similar to the referral machine.


    Any additional comments?

    I need to listen to this one again. Its a constant barrage of good ideas, and you can't really take it all in in one listen. Too much good info!
