Author John Yokoyama, owner of Seattle's World Famous Pike Place Fish Market, explains how he changed his attitude toward his employees, embraced a new way of treating people, led his employees in a fundamental directional shift and built a widespread reputation. This isn't a business 'cookbook' that tells you step by step what to do. As Yokoyama insists, you can't just copy someone else's success. You must be an individual. However, the story of his turnaround and triumph at World Famous Pike Place Fish Market is a good read that illuminates the need for leaders to treat their employees, as he says, as people, not as human resources. Although the Market is getting to be as overexposed as a fish left out in the sun, we welcome this first person exposition from the owner. After numerous published accounts about the Market, the saga of how Yokoyama empowered employees, promoted his business and changed his style comes through best in his own words.

Read the book a few years back after attending a motivational seminar. This book offers a person how to "BE PRESENT" in business settings, but in a that life can offer. If you are not working towards improving ones' self, you will not understand the book. Your attitude about your co-workers, loved ones, etc is a choice. If you are not engaging in a positive attitude, one might get hit in the face with the "flying fish"!
