    "Love the NPS strategy but boy is this is a sleeper"

    I only made it half way through, this was just boring as hell. After you get the nuts and bolts of how NPS works it's just a very slow delivery of examples. The narrator doesn't help liven it up any. I just couldn't bare to continue. However I do believe in and highly recommend the NPS busines strategy. Just don't expect to be whisked away by this story.

    "No substance"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Some material around how to set up NPS in a business.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Fred Reichheld and Rob Markey again?

    Yes -I love the NPS System. Unfortunately this book is 80% anecdotes about businesses that have successfully implemented it. Also, the vast majority were huge companies.

    Would love to see some info on how startups or small companies can implement NPS.


    What about Walter Dixon’s performance did you like?

    Well read -good voice.


    Any additional comments?

    My company has used NPS for 3 years so I love the concept. The book was interesting for a while as it's well read and some of the stories are interesting. Would have preferred some more meat around how to properly implement the system and less success stories.

    "Ensure you keep your good customers!"

    In a recession where the focus is on budgets you need to be able to prove that you are giving value rather than being a cost. NPS is the best way I have seen of ensuring you understand what the Customer thinks of you. I have never seen something so simple be so effective and when incorporated in products like CustomerGauge(tm) all the hard work is taken out of making the data into information.

    If you believe that the Customer is King you need to read this to ensure that they feel that they are important.
