    A Stall Busting Classic!

    Seldom do I see a book this good about all of the bad habits that individuals and organizations need to break. Even less often do I see a book that also addresses ways to find innovative alternative methods that will increase effectiveness and save time. Putting the two together in one volume makes How to Succeed . . . a book that everyone should read and apply. I was especially impressed by chapter 12 (Flip the Rules) where you are encouraged to do the opposite of the conventional wisdom and chapter 21 (Doing the Impossible for Your Customer) where the goal is to accomplish something well beyond what even the most loyal customer would expect that you could accomplish for her or him. Those chapters are worth the price of the book. Although the book¿s title suggests that this is another time management book, the scope is well beyond that area People who want a few solid time-saving ideas will find them here. Lots of my favorite examples of time management advice are here (take the chairs out of ¿meeting¿ rooms, schedule time to think of better solutions, and eliminate what doesn¿t need doing at all). Dr. Kriegel also does a good job of combining common sense, business examples, and cited studies from articles and books. His writing style is smooth, simple, and direct. The 26 chapters are as brief as possible, while still getting the main points across. You won¿t need to take notes, because the key ideas are summarized at the end of each chapter. So ultimately why did I like the book so much? I thought about several of my most challenging business issues as I read the book, and was stimulated to come up with a number of new ideas that are worth testing. If even one of them works, my personal effectiveness at my main task will increase by several hundred percent. That¿s a great payoff from reading one book, in my experience. Where do you need to be more effective? Keep that in mind, and read this book! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The 2,000 Percent Solution and The Irresistible Growth Enterprise
