Book is high on feel-good, cheap phrases (Don't light a fire under your employee when you can build a fire within them) and low on methodology, practical application, or behavioral analysis. Avoid this book.

I thought the book was great because it gave me proven ideas, ways to empower employees, and ways to handle certain situations. It is a book I recommend to any new team leader or manager.
