    Personal Responsibility - A Wakeup Call

    I am a huge fan of Tim's first two books, Love is the Killer App and The Likeability Factor, both of which showed us how to impact the people around us for the better. As a speaker and consultant, I recommend these books frequently, and will now recommend his new book as well. This book takes it a step further, and shows us how to impact our world by becoming "Saver Soldiers". As a member of the generation right in the middle of the "profit at all cost" mentality and the green movement/social responsibility movement, I can now clearly see that I can make a difference and still make a profit. Tim shows very practical business applications, as well as personal applications. I know that I will now think twice before printing an e-mail or a PDF to read later. The message of the book is that one person can make a difference, and after reading the book, I want to be that one person. I love the challenge: "If not you, then who?". Thanks for the challenge and enlightenment.<BR/><BR/>David Kuiper

    Good Is The New Great

    Meeting and listening to Tim Sanders at an international conference made me want to read this book. When I did, two things stuck out. First is the concept of the Responsibility Revolution. Second is the concept of the Saver Soldier. As to the first, Sanders did his homework. His notion of the trend he's identified at the Responsibility Revolution is not a personal polemic based on a speaker/consultant's motivational message. He looked deep into corporate efforts, conducted independent surveys of consumers, and spent time with a number of CEOs who are balancing 'doing well' with 'doing good.' What his research suggests is that customers want to make a difference with their buying power, and they're 'we're' beginning to look at our suppliers and vendors more critically to see if they're doing the right thing for society and the planet. Those companies that pass consumer scrutiny will maintain their relevance. In other words 'doing good' is replacing 'being different.' In Tim's words, 'Good is the new Great.' As to the second, the concept of the Saver Soldier is both catchy and compelling. A Saver Soldier is essentially an individual who is rightly categorized as a servant leader 'to borrow Robert Greenleaf's term for it'. Responsible companies, he says, are full of people who actually care about each other as well as the greater community. Tim's book is chock full of stories that could easily fit into one of those 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' books, the difference being that not only are these Saver Soldiers changing lives, but making good business sense at the same time. Having worked with Toyota, a company he cites as one leading the revolution, I can attest to how correct he is -- the people there behave more like volunteers fighting for a cause than the stereotypical organizational man/woman. I won't give away the end story, but suffice it to say that it is one of the most gripping stories of life in a corporation you'll ever read. My bet is Sanders had a tough time deciding whether to use it first or last in the book. It grabs you. The book's a great read, the language is easily accessible, and it's the perfect book for the plane.
