I read this book in one session on a Sunday afternoon. The skillful writing had me literally with tears rolling down my cheeks by the end of the prologue (not of laughter!) and thus I was glued. The message in the book is simple and a must for anyone who is looking to motivate their teams and increase productivity for the long term rather than short term fixes and is about looking at your own attitude as well as that of your team. If you wish to stay as one of life's lone rangers don't buy this book.

Format: Paperback
Gung Ho! is a simple yet powerful presentation of three easily understood principles which saved an American factory from closure and resulted in the site receiving a White House commendation.
The three principles involve lessons from the natural world. The animals used to demonstrate the principles - squirrels, beavers and geese - should be sufficiently familiar to most readers, even if only from television, to not obscure the messages which the authors present. To me the beauty of this book - less than 200 pages in paperback - is the evident conviction conveyed in the text, supported by several references to other organisations who have successfully adiopted the Gung Ho! principles.
This is not a dry technical managerial textbook. It is rather a story of how observation of the natural world can be used to motivate human beings.

Format: Hardcover
I must admit, I was at first a bit skeptical of this title's "Native American wisdom" -- talk about squirrels and geese . . . however, because co-author Sheldon Bowles unselfishly provided guidance to us as we edited our own book, "Bubba on Business" (also available at Amazon.com), I forged ahead. What I found was an amazingly practical book, filled not with vague "principles" but solid, actionable ideas. In our consulting business, we have found no better articulation of these straightforward ideas than Blanchard and Bowles' Gung Ho! Watch out, though -- if you apply Gung Ho's learnings, it will change your business and your personal life. Kudos from someone who's a fairly skeptical reader of so-called leadership books. This one's not on the top shelf with my "show off" titles, but down where I can reach it again and again. It's really worth buying.

Format: Hardcover
The beauty of this book is that it is thin, has a large typestyle and lots of white around the text. And yet every page contains high value lessens wrapped in true-to-life story. Buy it and read it: you'll never look at squirrels, beavers and geese the same again. And you will never look at increasing your own circle of influence the same again. Actualy this book should have six stars..!

After I read this book, I bought a copy for my boss and my Leadership Team. We are taking this book a few pages at a time and applying the principles to our business. We'll be Gung Ho in no time! The lessons are numerous and the philosophy is priceless. Gung Ho, friend.

This book provides simple but powerful concepts that can actually be implemented. After all the lengthy management books I've read and struggled to apply this one is a breath of fresh air.
Gung Ho!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an all American blockbuster were the native indian runs the no good cowboy industrialists out of town and at the same time saves the first lady from being fired. Coming to the rescue, Andy (native indian) shows his boss the ways of the wild. If David Attenborough and brother Richard had ever considered making leadership and management films this would have been an opportunity to work together and utilise their talents. The behaviour of the squirrels, beavers and geese is replicated back in the factory so production can be increased and the factory and workforce saved. It is a nail biting, rollercoaster ride, set against a backdrop of the American wild and the seasons, will they have time to learn the way of the squirrel, before the bosses shut those factory gates, will we ever understand the way of the beaver and will we ever be able to implement the way of the geese, before time runs out! When you open the last page of this book the star spangled banner plays loudly. The book is a great metaphor for leadership and management within a team environment. God Bless America

I kept seeing Gung Ho! on the bestseller lists (New York Times and Wall Street Journal are the two I noticed) and so I decided to read it. Best decision I've made in a long time. This book has re-energized my business life and it's now doing the same for everyone in the department. Do yourself a favor and read this book if you want to be successful. It's easy to read. The authors have put it all into a handful of pages and the type is big! My kind of book. And it's Tom Peter's too. On the cover he is quoted: "This book will revolutionize any organization which adopts it, and those that don't won't survive. It's that simple." I agree with Mr. Peters.
