    Inspiring and Motivating.

    Warriors, Workers, Whiners and Weasels is a truly inspiring piece of work. As a young aspiring professional, Tim O¿Leary¿s book has given me the confidence and know-how to achieve greatness in this competitive age of business. O¿Leary breaks down business personalities into 4 types and provides insight on how individuals can identify which category they fall under. The concepts discussed are extremely simple to follow and just as easy to apply. I feel privileged to have received a pre-released copy of the book and am excited to purchase more copies to give as Fathers Day gifts.

    Don't be a Weasel

    I live in Portland, Oregon and a friend of mine gave me a demo copy of Warriors, Workers, Whiners and Weasels. He asked me to take a couple of weeks to read it and fill out a survey, I figured I would skim it and fake the survey just to make him happy but that quickly changed. After buzzing through the first couple of pages I realized my motive was ¿Weasely¿ so I committed to reading the whole thing. I finished the book in 3 days and now have a whole new outlook on life and work. This book has given the motivation to maximize my potential and settle for an average existence. Thanks for pushing me to read the book Steve.

    A Common Sense Approach to Business

    I'm not one who normally reads business or motivational books, but I was given an advance copy by a friend who loved this book, and decided to give it a try. My friend said 'this will become the new language of business', and I could not agree more. The author breaks down the business environment into 4 personality types that are completely accurate - and I was immediately looking at myself and my own employees in an entirely new light. There are a lot of great tips on how to improve your own and your employees' performance, and the book has a sense of humor that makes it a lot of fun to read. And as my friend predicted, it has become a part of my business language. Now we talk about Warriors, Workers, Whiners, and Weasels around the office - and everyone familiar with the book understands what we are talking about - like a kind of business shorthand that immediately gets to the point.
