Unimpressive

Very basic/elementary summary. I found the work of very little usefulness both at a tactical or strategic level. The 4 elements are not clearly indicated. This belies the title. Waste of time and money.

Essential Reading

Another direct no nonsense approach towards improving customer service. I highly recommend this for Service Managers and above.

Great listen for the price

I enjoy HBR articles - there's always some insight you can get through a read, or in this case, a listen. Some good thoughts and insights.
