Reviews - What do customers think about Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work: 101 Stories of Courage, Compassion & Creativity in the Workplace?
Very sentimental but still worthwhile Feb 14, 2003
This tape was my first experience of the Chicken Soup series. I had heard of Mark Victor Hansen from the One Minute Millionaire book. The first thing that struck me was how awfully - there's only one way to put this - American the tape is. Beneath the slightly patronising (perhaps only to non-American ears) delivery the stories are indeed worthwhile even though some suffer from being over-sentimental. Recommended.
Nice, Inspiring little book Nov 11, 2002
Nice, inspiring little book. I work for an elected official who is a tyrant. I wish I'd seen this book 3 yrs ago! But, fortunately, it's cheered me up enough to get through the next 2 months as he was just defeated in his bid for re-election. (Yippeee!)
Couldn't put this book down Jul 27, 2002
I noticed this book at the airport bookstore and picked it up. I couldn't put the book down as I read one touching story after the other. It's a great colletion of stories to inspire us to add "heart" to the workplace. Kudos to all the authors.
Very disappointing; nowhere near as good as rest of series Apr 5, 2002
I'm a huge fan of the Chicken Soup books, and bought them all (even the Jewish, although I'm Christian, the prisoner's, although no one I know has ever been arrested, etc.). However, this one just arrived, but is already packed to be returned. I skimmed it, but was horribly disappointed. The stories all appeared long-winded (actually, verbose), boring, and non-inspiring. Although the other books are all wonderful to read and reread over and over again, containing countless inspirational stories (many short enough to print out and frame, and virtually all worthy of displaying on one's wall), these weren't even worth wading through the first time. I hate to say it, but this one seems to have been written solely to make a buck, padding out the most boring experiences to compile a book. They aren't inspirational and aren't interesting -- period.
Could use a pinch of Rosemary and spice ... Aug 13, 2001
First of all, just to get things off of my chest (and believe you me, I usually LOVE getting everything off of my chest right off the bat!) Item! Jack Canfield is an excellent and gifted motivational writer. Golly, he has motivated me to write a review, right? However, this time around old Jack's soup could use a little salt or herbage to his advice. If you ask anyone where I work, I am always promoting Chicken Soup for the Soul stories however I didn't find these all that courageous or creative. I mean, what is creative or daring about a woman who builds an entire miniature of her office environment in her cubicle using Beanie Babies for each of her coworkers. And what bigger point was Jack trying to point out about the manager who tried to motivate his daily reports by having them act out scenes from "A Room With a View" before they started their shift each day? Kind of lost me this time, Mr Canfield!
