Publisher's Summary

"It's Monday morning and George walks out the front door to his car and a flat tire. But this is the least of his problems. His home life is in shambles and his team at work is in disarray. With a big new product launch coming up in 2 weeks for the NRG-2000 he has to find a way to get it together or risk losing his marriage and job. Forced to take the bus to work, George meets a unique kind of bus driver and an interesting set of characters (passengers) that over the course of 2 weeks share the 10 rules for the ride of his life... and attempt to help him turn around his work and team and save his job and marriage from an almost inevitable destruction."

    "Simple, straightforward"

    I loved this book. The tips are simple, yet relevant, doable, and sensible. Jon Gordon as the narrator works, he has an uplifted, energetic, enthusiastic delivery that fits with the book without going over the top.

    Story
    "Same old, same old.."

    I felt like this was a dumbed down version of a million cliches or "words of wisdom" that have been said a million times over. What?? You mean, if you have a positive attitude, those around you will respond positively?? How profound.. What??? You mean, we are all the "drivers" of our own "bus", and WE determine the "destination"?? Wow.. I really didn't need a cheesy story to illustrate these points for me, but I don't know; maybe some people do. I merely found it slightly insulting.

    Story
    "What a waste of time"
    What disappointed you about The Energy Bus?

    Nothing new. A collection of worn out advice; "you need vision, focus, enthusiasm, purpose and love! plus few other trite advice. It's as though we have all been waiting for the author to tell us that to succeed you need enthusiasm! like there is a switch that you can just flick on!
    Why anyone need to write a whole book when a small article would be an overkill is beyond me. Save your money and 3 hours of pointless listening.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jon Gordon’s performances?

    No

    "The Energy Bus"

    Really enjoyed this book. The principles and story are simple and maybe some you have heard before, but I still think they are powerful. They have been put together in a fun and engaging fable. Also, I found the issues addressed rang true to real work situations.

    "Great story, great inspiration!"

    Loved it. Like all of Jon's books to which I have listened, I was challenged, encouraged and motivated. I find I learn best and retain longest by audio books built around a story which captures my interest and drives home the information in a practical way.

    "Such a great way to get me and my team motivated!"

    This goes on the list of one of the best motivational books in history.

    I would highly recommend it for yourself, for your team whether it's at work, at home or a volunteer group.

    "Stooooopid"

    If you are just starting out in Amway, then this book is probably for you. It is a poorly written story with 10 points to help you think more positive, get motivated, and pump you up. But if you have any serious responsibilities or business to take care of, then this book is a complete waste of time.

    "The Energy Bus"

    Very easy listerning but memorable. The ten steps stay in your head and the personal motivational tools were simple but effective. I enjoyed The Energy Bus and would recommend to anyone needing to boost either themselves or their team.
