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.
This is an easy book to read, and in some ways it is a simple book, although not simplistic. The principles are timeless, and you can take practical advice from it which you can apply straightaway.
What's cool is that the story is based on real events, and its connexion with real-life people is touching. A success-story blueprint.
