A Good Read!
You¿re back in the fishing boat with the crew that brought you the successful Fish! and Fish! Tales. Offering another finny fable, Stephen C. Lundin, John Christensen and Harry Paul present a business parable based on creating and sustaining successful change. The book uses the same fictitious approach as the other two Fish!ing trips, but this time the story is set at a hospital¿s nursing station. The agent-of-change head nurse has departed and the new head nurse feels that the group is losing its vision. Then, she discovers that a local sushi restaurant is a model of excellence, and all goes swimmingly after that. Although the advice offered isn¿t particularly unique, some may find a certain charm in the story. Given that this is round three, the format may seem a little repetitive to those who have already Fish!ed. If you want to catch the core of the message on your first cast, look for the highlights on the occasional pages in whale-size type. We recommend the basic common sense of these messages, even if the storytelling is a little fishy.

Coffee with Sugar, Please!
Some good book. I think everyone needs to compare notes from time to time. And parable telling works with just a little thought-taking. So why not? It is easy and helpful. For those that really want to add to their reservior of succcess read Go Virtual. Go Virtual makes the fish books even better. The big fish swim a little deeper. In the depth is a spoonfull of sugar!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

How to OPTIMIZE your fishing experience
Anchoring change in an organization is an important issue and is described nicely in this fictional book. I found the sushi setting intriguing as a context for change. I read all the best-selling business books and summaries. The best book for OPTIMIZING change, personal leadership, thinking and morale within an organization is OPTIMAL THINKING.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
