I cried, of hapiness Aug 12, 2007
Fish! is a beautiful true story. If you are not too happy about your job, it's a MUST. Sometimes we can't change our job, but we can change OURSELVES and the way we relate to it. Fish! is so inspirational, I hope they make it a movie some day soon-. thank you to the authors and the producers of audiocoleccion! great job!!
Gung Ho!-Type Book for Toxic Energy Waste Zones Sep 17, 2004
It is not surprising that this book is a lot like Gung Ho! Oneof the coauthors is from the Ken Blanchard organization, and Blancharduses a film created by the other coauthors in his talks. The story is a fable built on a real fish business in Seattle, Pike Fish Place (usually referred to as "the world famous Pike Fish Place" in the book).
The fable is wonderful and if it were written in the Gung Ho! format, I would have given in 5 stars and wished to give it 6. I frankly liked it better than Gung Ho! for its central message. In fact, if you live in Seattle, assume I gave it a 6 because you won't have the problems with the book that I did.
The reason I graded the book down one star is that the structure doesn't quite work. The first problem is that there are a lot of references in the book to Pike Fish Place that probably make all kinds of sense to people who have been there or seen the film. I have had neither experience. I found some of the references quite confusing. Why do customers want to catch raw fish wearing their business clothes? Why do customers want to buy fish from a fish market where customers are encouraged to try to catch the fish, and the fish usually fall on the ground? Beats me, but the book talks a lot about this kind of example. I came away confused in a number of places. But I'll be sure to go by Pike Fish Place on my next trip to Seattle to figure out what the authors were trying to teach me.
The rest of the references are pretty clear, so you won't be confused all of the time. Perhaps you have a better imagination than I do.
The other structural problem in the book that caused me to grade it down is that the process described for implementing Fish! involved having the people involved visit Pike Fish Place.
Ignoring the structural problems, the story is as heart-warming a fable as you could hope for. It tugs at the heart strings in a way that the Blanchard fables don't do. That's why I would normally have wanted to give the book a 6 star rating.
One of the great strengths of the book is that it aspires to humanity in places where humanity is often partially shut out -- back offices, fish stores, and other places where most people would not want to work. The authors persuasively point out that life is what you make of it.
The book is clearly aimed at the supervisory and managerial level person, although it will be appreciated by those below and above those levels.
