Excellence is Excellent! Dec 30, 2007
Impressive compilation of quotes. I'm someone who is always looking to grow and improve. Typically I'm reading about R/E investing, finance, and strategic planning in business but this title just caught my attention. It is one of those simple books that really makes a person stop while reading, take a few notes, and think about leadership and what it takes to be number one! I have an MBA from a top 25 B-school and have been very fortunate both personally and professionally but I've learned that one can never stop learning about excellence if the ultimate goal is to be the best. This book is a great read; I highly recommend it!
