You will find yourself hooked by the story (I couldn't put it down!) and benefitting from the insightful leadership lessons. The book also includes a highly useful "toolkit" at the end and you get the added bonus of being able to download some very useful additional resources too (these are now downloaded to my laptop for frequent reference - download details are contained in the book). All in all a must read for those in business.
I've read my fair share of management and leadership books. Well more precisely I've started reading plenty. The problem is they are so boring and full of cliches.
It's not just the title of this book Piranahas in the bidet that is different, the whole approach is different. It's a beautifully written, interesting book to read. I found myself really caring about the characters and learned a lot of really valuable stuff, almost without realising it, whilst being entertained. What could be nicer?
I'm really looking forward to putting some of my new learning into practise!

Packed full of guidance for anyone running a business or in a leadership role plus hugely valuable free extras available from the author's website. And all brilliantly packaged in a story that is truly captivating. I took the book with me on holiday and then got told off by my wife for not paying her enough attention!
This is one of those very rare books that I will be treating as a source of reference for the future. In fact, I've downloaded the extra resources and I'm using them in my own business right now!

Now I like this book for a number of reasons. I won't harp on about the content because looking at the other reviewers, more esteemed and better qualified people have given that part of it sufficient validation for you to by now realise that this has some meaty and worthwhile content if you are a business leader, especially in these testing times.
So let's take it as fact that this has got some great content.
What I like about this book is the way it presents that content to make it not only accessible and interesting, but engaging and memorable.
It targets both sides of the brain with the majority of the book being a well written story drawing out the key themes and ideas through narrative and emotional experience - tick in the box for the right brain.
And then throughout the book each chapter has a summary of the "Wit and Wisdom" from that part of the book if like me you are sometimes a little too dull to pick up on the subtleties of the teaching.
But not only that, the last 38 pages are a collection of ideas, tips, technques, strategies packaged in the form of a very accessible toolkit of ideas - tick in the box for the left brain.
So if you are bored with the textbook type approach of the majority of business books and want something that will be easy and entertaining to read, has great content yet leaves you in no doubt about what the takeaways are, then this is the book for you.
The books is excellent and makes the lessons snappy and readable and with the summary allows you to dip in and out for tips.
I would also refer to the website kamguru.com which dovetails with the book and gives you more of an overview of key account management plus leading your teams etc.
