Mr. Gordon nails it! We ALL live in a world that confronts us with negativity. If we want to make a difference, we need to stop mindlessly complaining and work on positive solutions. I plan on putting some of this into action at work and at home. I could NOT put it down.

Easy read. Short, sweet and to the point. Integrated a little story with the rule about actual events of a company this happened to. The book has opened my eyes to the obsessive complaining I do and most of us do without even realizing it. Implemented these ideas with co workers. Already seeing changes. Recommend this book.

In Jon Gordons follow up to "The Energy Bus", he follows the story of Hope. Who undergoes a major change in her life thanks to a security guard and our best friend Joy's sister. This is a great bok and I reccomend it to any one who feels like their life is out of control and someone who lacks reason to smile.

Short, quick and to the point. Dead on and gives good examples of how to deal with complaining in the workplace. Face it, we can all relate. This should be required reading for anyone seeking motivation. Not quite as good as The Energy Bus, but good nonetheless.
