    Carolyn Dickson, Allied Waste Services

    'Congratulation to Chuck for an amazing story line with depth. Upon my first reading, I recommend that all companies of any size purchase a copy for each employee. After re-reading 'Coffee at Luna's' I plan to give a copy to my son, Ed, and his friends, Mike, Craig and Dave who are definitely in need of a 'Teacher' in their young corporate world journey.'

    A Renewable Success Strategy

    Coffee at Luna's paints a vivid picture of our high speed society and A types trying to make a difference. It touched a little to close to home for me and was a thought provoking reminder of the importance of balance in our lives. I particularly liked the renewable aspect to the strategy presented. Stop, look, listen, execute and then teach! So often, we are presented a plan for success in our lives and careers but it fails to include that key renewable component. The power of recognition and the simple thank you can not be overstated. This fable makes that abundantly clear.

    I loved it!

    I loved it! Short and to the point..I also thought the 'story like' writing style was great.

    A great book to give

    Chuck Martin has cut right to the chase. He highlights the way to rediscover the essential vitality and soul that our businesses have lost. He provides a simple and concise method for re-igniting the flame. Every time Teacher caused me to mentally ask a question, the characters would answer it within a page.

    A really excellent read!

    Coffee at Luna's is a really excellent read - both my fiancé and I agreed. He said 'this book is describing my life for the past 10 years!' We both found the book very practical, realistic, and relevant, and very good advice. We certainly will apply the principles in both our work and personal lives.
