"I hate Mondays."
"They say I'm responsible, but my boss makes all the decisions."
"We're supposed to work as a team, but everybody's out for themselves."
Sound familiar? You don't have to take it anymore!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Written as a tale from a mythical time when dragons roamed and knights slew them with magic arrows, this book takes us behind the scenes to those poor assembly-line workers who made the magic arrows. Unfortunately, not only are the dragons multiplying faster than the knights can kill them and rival villages are springing up promising fewer dragons, but the arrow makers are unhappy and unfulfilled in their work. Three of them decide to improve their work life. Not only do they succeed, but with the help of a wizard they end up diversifying into producing magic cleaning wands. Byham and Cox (Zapp: The Lightning of Empowerment, Crown, 1990) have written a fable intended to motivate employees. To succeed in that task they will need more substance than this book offers. Not recommended. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 1/94.]-Joshua Cohen, Mid-Hudson Lib. System, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

    A Very Powerful Book

    I feel this book is a very powerful book. I find it is an easy reader, as the book is formatted into an actual story format instead of just facts and documents. It teaches that hen things are dark and gray and not to motivating to be there that we have to take personal action and make things better. Because if nothing gets said or done about it everything will remain the same dark way. It takes you threw different things that you can do to improve on to make things better. There is a lot to learn from this book and would recommend it to everyone on all levels.
