    Unoriginal

    I hate to give a bad review but this book was disappointing. I was curious about someone who marketed themselves as "The Profit Repairman" but found that the title of the book was the best part. As a huge Jeffrey Gitomer fan I couldn't help but feel that Tom knocked off Jeffrey's concept of "little xyz book of.." and the "repairman" theme.

    I found Tom's branding confusing; he markets himself as a repair man but in his picture is wearing a suit and tie with a pen in his hand. All his chapters where named with Greek symbols (what does that have to do with repairing profit?) I found the book to be all over the place: the branding was confusing, the content was simple enough but written in a very unoriginal way. His topics were useful but nothing stood out to me. I didn't understand how it was "little black book to success" - what does "little black book" have to do with anything? The little-black-book is about managing contacts, isn't it?

    I think Tom had a good intention to write a simple business success book but felt in his desire to be concise, the book was left very empty and vague. He was so kind to sign the book for be before he sent it for review - very professional. I have no doubt that Tom is great at helping companies restore lost profits but the book itself was totally forgettable.
