    Patrick Lencioni has Great Ideas for Your Family

    Patrick Lencioni uses a story to illustrate the importance and power of using simple principles to clarify decisions in your family.

    It is a quick and easy read and is hard to put down, but it has a lot of great ideas and he communicates the principles very well.

    I just finished the book and look forward to putting this into practice in my family.

    I hope you get this book and are as excited about it as I am.
