    Worst book ever! These two authors have no concept of reality i

    Worst book ever! These two authors have no concept of reality if you meet them in person. This text is a waste of money. You will regret purchasing this text of have them come and present. While the concepts around customer service and relationship building is much needed in education, these two are not expert authorities. We even had one of the authors (Middleton) come and present to faculty. In fact, I was hoping the presentation was better than the book. He was late to the training, ran in without any apologies, exuded arrogance, and turned everyone off within the first 5 minutes. This is not how I wanted to begin building my school around the customer service model. The presenter himself should have practiced the customer service he preaches in the text he "supposedly" co-wrote. After the presentation, which was a bunch of pictures and no meat to the concepts at hand, I question whether he actually co-wrote the book or is in name only on this text. Based on my personal experience with Middleton at my school, I am assuming Petitt actually wrote the book. In any case, please think hard before purchasing or looking at these individuals to present. I think you will regret it. I know I did!

    Does not practice his idea

    This is a self-published book.
    We had Mr Middleton at our school and most thought he was arrogant. A book was purchased by a coworker and I contacted a teacher in his district. That teacher told me that Mr Middleton administered by intimidation and that he was very forceful. Additionally, he even had students secretly evaluate the teachers on forms he provided.
    His school's test scores have become stagnant since the implementation of this customer service approach, while neighboring schools have overtaken him. Teacher morale has tanked according to 2 teachers to whom I spoke. Be leery of this approach and contact Mason County teachers before you adopt it at your school.
