Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This enjoyable collection of articles will inspire and soothe the person who believes that there needs to be more than just the "bottom line" to make a business successful. Canfield, of the famous "Chicken Soup" franchise, and Miller, president of Partnerships for Change, have selected materials from a broad range of contemporary business leaders. Many of the contributors were involved in the California Task Force on Self-Esteem and consider personal and corporate self-esteem to be the primary ingredient for success; here they offer their favorite techniques on building and maintaining it. Canfield's narration is well done, but Miller's voice sometimes lacks adequate flexibility and polish. Still, the quality of the material compensates for these minor defects. This program is for the person who wants to work for or start a business that moves beyond the traditional hierarchical model and is also recommended for public and business libraries.-Kathleen A.
