Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this sequel ot Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive , Mackay, a Minneapolis envelope-maker, issues a flood of no-nonsense business advice in the form of original aphorisms and short, germane examples, all delivered with high spirits and ever-bubbling humor. ``The sale begins when the customer says yes,'' he declares. ``ASTONISH them . . . get it there before you said you would . . . '' Mackay offers detailed programs to motivate customers and employees, and tells success stories of consumer needs perceived and fulfilled--pantyhose shops, walk-in medical clinics. He also stresses the importance of entrepreneurial courage, such as his own insistence on lengthy titles for his books. First serial to Success magazine; BOMC and Fortune Book Club alternates. (Feb.)
Library Journal
Like Mackay's previous best seller, How To Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive ( LJ 4/15/88), this work is filled with anecdotes and typical Mackay tips. Beginning with how to get a job, he uses hints and stories to show how to get ahead in the business world. The work is composed of 85 lessons broken into seven groupings, with each lesson usually only a couple of pages in length. Each grouping relates to specific aspects of a business career, e.g. ``Harvey Mackay's Short Course on Getting Started'' or ``Working Your Way Up'' or ``Running the Show.'' In addition there are 35 ``Quickies,'' usually a page or less in length, that explicate a point, e.g. ``Find One Good Idea, and You Can Use It Forever.'' Sure to be a best seller. Recommended for all business collections that include popular works. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/89.-- -- Michael D. Kathman, St. John's Univ., Collegeville, Minn.

Once again, Harvey Mackay gives his readers a concise, no-nonsense approach to a number of problems and opportunities that exist in the workplace. His writing style is direct and thought provoking. All of us in management should own this book, revisit it often, and give it to friends and co-workers.

I read this book at least ten years ago. I can't remember the details, but I do remember enjoying it and buying another Harvey Mackay book.
