Finally the truth is told Apr 7, 2008
It's about time someone has put in writting what everyone has been thinking. This is great eye opener for those in business or thinking about starting a business. We have all experienced "Dead People Working." Wheather a fellow worker,employee or perhaps our self. BOOM! can explode your business into what you first dreamed it could be. Get it NOW!
I Don't Get It Apr 5, 2008
I truly don't understand what the fuss is all about. In terms of background, I am a successful entrepreneur and business owner who has read a hundred of these types of books. I found this book vague, rather remedial and the authors simply regurgitated the same old stuff. It sounds very much like their book "Guts" which was actually a pretty good read. I feel you would be much better off re-reading one of the classics like Think & Grow Rich, an early book by Dale Carnegie or a true new classic like Visionary Life or Visionary Business by Marc Allen. Trust me .... you will thank me.
Not for the Faint of Heart! Jan 26, 2008
Kevin and Jackie tell it like it is in BOOM! They have the highest respect for us as people because they believe we are responsible for our choices and that we can change them to make the biggest contributions to others we can in life. This book confront you with choices and principles that you can't hide from, and provides numerous inspiring and heart warming examples of real people who have lived out those principles. You'll be a different person for the better after reading this book!
KA-BOOM! It's an explosion! Dec 6, 2007
This book is an explosion of ideas that will change the way you do business and change the way you live your life. I'm definitely adding this book to my recommended reading list for my Corporate Culture Class at UCSD. Kevin and Jackie should be proud of this "dynamite" book!
BOOM! is one of the best business books I have ever read Nov 28, 2007
Having been in the business world for nearly 30 years and in a leadership role for over 25 years, I've long credited being an avid reader as an integral part of my success. In nearly 30 years of reading, I have never followed reading a book by purchasing 50 copies for our leadership team and valued stakeholders in our business, but that is exactly what I did after reading BOOM. The message in BOOM! could not be delivered in any more of a timely fashion and effective method. I urge, no demand that you read BOOM as quickly as you can if indeed you are interested in taking your performance to an unprecedented level. Fantastic job to the Freiberg's on delivering a "must read" to business leaders. Allen M. Fredrickson, President/CEO Signature Performance, Inc.
