Imagine a new kind of business model: one where caring for people is your capital investment and the returns redefine your bottom line.

REVVED! is the story of Katie Adams, an up-and-coming manager who's struggling to rekindle the enthusiasm and support of her team at work. When she's passed over for a long-awaited promotion, the message from her boss is clear: turn things around or get out.

But how? How do you inspire people to work harder, reach higher, and achieve more? How do you get them to support you and go above and beyond in everything they do? How do you get them to care?

You show that you care about them.

From the coauthor of FISH!, the bestselling book that put fun and passion back into the workplace, comes REVVED!-an incredible three-step program that helps you to maximize the returns that come from caring about your most important asset: your people.

Jump-start your passion and put yourself and your team on the road to real results:

  • WIN THEM OVER: Release that reservoir of positive energy in people by listening to them and voicing your appreciation. When people know you care, they're excited about going the extra mile.
  • BLOW THEM AWAY: Take that excitement to the next level by creatively recognizing and rewarding your people. They'll feel so good about going that extra mile, they'll look for every opportunity to do it again.
  • KEEP THEM REVVED: Sustain that level of excitement indefinitely by consistently and sincerely maintaining positive, honest relationships with everyone you encounter.

Once you put this program into practice, you'll learn two very important lessons about caring: how huge the returns can be and how quickly your life can change for the better. So get ready, get REVVED!, and put your team on the road to high-speed success.

What People are Saying About This

Stephen C. Lundin

"In my travels with FISH! I have heard many sad stories about coworkers who seem to be dedicated to their own dissatisfaction; to their detriment and to the detriment of the firm. Thanks to Harry Paul and Ross Reck, who have brilliantly captured the antecedent conditions leading to a crusty worker, I now have something positive to suggest. That suggestion is Revved Up."
Co-Author of Top Performer and the FISH! series of books.

"This is a super book--a must read! Learn how to recapture your caring, compassionate "hugging" self and share the story of REVVED! with your associates and family. "

Stephen R. Covey

"Revved! is the perfect interconnected follow-up to Fish! The 3 levels of caring are beautifully embedded in a compelling story-which shows how through the power of choice we can master our own emotions and actions-all of which reinforces the saying, "I don't care how much you know until I know how much you care."

It really is a simple recipe for success. REVVED! makes you look in the mirror and see all of the missed opportunities to Blow them away. REVVED! is a must read for the first-time manager AND the experienced manager. Harry Paul and Ross Reck have created a three- step process that will stand the test of time. REVVED! will definitely be added to our management curriculum. I don't think I will ever get tired of hearing "Is there anything else I can do for you?"

REVVED! validates what we know to be true even though we sometimes stumble from the right path.

"Revved! By Harry Paul and Ross Reck, presents an exciting new approach to energizing and motivating people to bring out the best in themselves and others. Read it, enjoy and apply!"
Co-author The One Minute Manager and The Secret


During the past 20-plus years, the two of us have delivered more than 1,000 lectures to corporations, small businesses, government agencies, nonprofit institutions, social organizations, service clubs, and universities in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, South America, and Mexico.

As we recently reflected on these experiences, one of the things that struck us was the amount of confusion that surrounds the act of caring about others. While most people quickly admit that caring about others is a good thing to do, they fail to appreciate two very important aspects of caring: how huge the return is that comes back to you from caring and how quickly your personal and professional lives can change for the better once you start.

Revved! introduces three easy steps that will show you how to maximize the return that comes back to you from caring. Winning Them Over shows you how to get others excited about going the extra mile for you, Blowing Them Away shows you how to take that excitement to the next level, and Keeping Them Revved! shows you how to sustain that high level of excitement indefinitely. As you put these three steps into practice, your success at work will immediately begin to skyrocket and your personal life will thrive as never before.

No need for a long review here. It's a simple, to the point book that contains a short story which illustrates the power that comes from showing others that you care. To accomplish this, the book offers a simple 3-step program (win them over, blow them away, and keep them revved). The book is mainly for managers but casual readers will like it as well.
