I've felt like someone waiting in line for a hit movie to open. As a long-time fan of the authors' classic THE OZ PRINCIPLE, which teaches the power of accountability in business, I have been praying for them to put their wisdom into a book I can recommend to family and friends. THE WISDOM OF OZ answers that prayer. With clear, step-by-step instruction on taking accountability for the results you want in life and lively, down-to-earth stories of people who have done just that, the book will certainly help my son move forward with his dream to succeed in the music world, my daughter to reach even more Brazilian children in need of mentoring and support, and my wife to turn her new business venture into a profitable enterprise. I cannot more highly recommend this brief but powerful book. Thank you, Oz Guys!

Powerful, yet simple and practical. The authors do a fantastic job of using great stories that illustrate the principles presented throughout the book. The methods and models discussed are pragmatic and effective. Overall, it was well-written, but an easy read. I'd recommend this book to family and friends for both personal and professional development.

Wonderful book that had personal and professional application. It is a quick and easy read and I loved the stories that help bring to life the Oz Principles. Added bonus what the mini poster included. Now I can remind myself often of the principles that will help me reach my dreams and push myself farther that ever before.

This book does a great job of inspiring us to get off the couch and take responsibility for what we want. The world would be a better place if everyone practiced the principles learned in this book. Everyone should read this book. Prepare to be inspired.

I agree with the other reader's comments about how avoiding the blame game has huge implications on your life. I can honestly say that I started working differently after reading this book. The authors make it clear that personal accountability gives you the power to be in control of your life and choices. When you know you are accountable for the results, good or bad, your entire mindset and outlook changes in how you treat the way you work. It's an incredible read for career advice.

This book is the ultimate formula for success. It's straightforward, easy to read, and entertaining. The authors are really empowering - it makes you want to  get up and DO something. Any book that makes me feel that way deserves 5 stars, hands down.

This book was recommended to me by a friend because they knew I was starting my own business for the very first time. As an aspiring entrepreneur, I face a lot of challenges, including working up the guts to ask for something, nailing down a disciplined work ethic, and above all, remaining positive, motivated and strong. A lot of books are inspiring, of course, but I found Wisdom of Oz's language and examples to be personal and relevant. It just felt like someone was talking to me in every inspirational aspect I needed in business. Highly recommend it to those looking for a way to better themselves at work (or otherwise).

So simple.  Very much worth reading!  I would recommend this to anyone, any age....this should be something kids start studying in high school.  Avoiding the blame game has huge implications to your entire life.
