"This is one of the top 5 business books of all time--THE foundational book for anyone who has to work (and live) with people!"
Verne Harnish, author of Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0)

"I know of no greater resource available today that helps business leaders achieve their goals and lead their teams. We incorporate the science and methods in Bringing out the Best in People in all we do as a company and with all of our partners, vendors, and customers. This book has transformed our products, our business model, our company, and the way we do business."
Gary M. Austin, CEO, OneCare, LLC

"This book has served thousands of our managers in their journey to understand why people do what they do. That crucial understanding has helped them to bring out the very best that their people can offer. Not providing managers with a tool as effective as Bringing out the Best in People would be like pushing someone out of an airplane without a parachute."
