Great Book Which Is Practical, Globally!

With only hundred pages, this book practically lays out the precepts to survive (and prosper) in this turbulent and unpredictable world. Covey is very more out of the "7 Habits" box this time by emphasizing: 1. Focus on Top Goals(in limited supply of Resources) 2. Identify Specific Jobs To Be Done (in downtime) 3. Keep Score 4. Regular Cycle of Follow Through In another words: 1. Execute Priorities with Excellence 2. Move with Speed of Trust 3. Achieve More with Less 4. Reduce Fear In plain language and filled with practical examples, this book is surprisingly useful as a direction pointer in the age of Turbulence.

Fascinating with Great Ideas

This book has great advice for businesses, employers, employees, and the like. Anyone could read this and come away with extended knowledge that will help them in all aspects of life, which is what I love about Covey's books. I also read recently his "7 Habits for Highly Effective Kids" and was astounded at the advice that applies not only to children, but to adults as well. Great book for anyone.

Perfect timing !

Stephen R. Covey has done it again! This little and fast read book is packed with relevant, well structured and easily applicable practical inspiration on how to utilize the current economic downturn on the expense of the less ambitious competitors. The prescription within the book is as simple as it is powerfull: 1. Execute priorities with excellence, 2. Move with the speed of trust, 3. Achieve more with less, and 4. Reduce fear. As the economy is gradually beginning to recover the publishing of this little helpful book is no less than perfect timing. Therefore it is a must-read in 2010 for all ambitious businesspeople - from the youngest MBA students to the most senior Fortune500 CEOs!

The cover says it all

In business it is a team that carries the burden of success and if that team does not have clearly communicated executable goals with realistic expectations or there are no solid practices in place for follow through and responsibility then the company is in trouble. This book clearly and simply lays out a path for any company to put these "predictable" practices to use. The analogies to the Tour de France and the company case histories (both good and bad) serve to illustrate the powerful concepts of teamwork, communication, trust and value that serve as a fundamental structure for a winning group. Less than a 100 pages this book packs in billions of dollars of advice.
