As you can probably tell from the price and the page count, this is a small book. As a matter of fact you can fit it in your back pocket without much trouble. And to be honest that might be a great idea! Because this book is absolutely packed with excellent ideas for motivating your employees and should be kept close to you at all times.
Although there isn't a lot of new information in this book (how often is there new information in this field?) It is excellently packaged and right on the money. He focuses a fair amount on the fact that removing demotivators is as, perhaps even more important than, providing motivation. The book is a series of short chapters, each covering one theme or concept, and each one ends with a couple of action steps to be taken and ideas for how to apply the concept. It isn't a rousing read, but rather a short, to the point, directed methodology to help make you a better manager.
If you currently have employees, or just hope to...
There is too much book recycling here. This book borrows numerous concepts from Brian Tracy's previous work. (Rule of 3s, Pareto Principle (80/20 Rule, etc.) He also mentioned concepts similar to the book Drive (mastery, autonomy, & purpose).
While I am a huge fan of Brian Tracy, there is too many familiar concepts, rather than fresh concepts.
In typically Brian Tracy quality and style, this book has a lot of good material in it. I recommend it for anyone who wants to motivate people or needs a shot of enthusiasm.
