It's an eye opener book. Specially service industry. For writers, speakers, authors, etc I loved it.
Douglas is able to explain the importance of his points very clearly with humour and a whole arsenal of speaking / writing techniques.
If you're a professional, international change agent or a local dog trainer, it's relevant to you.
