We recently heard from Misty Young, who with her husband Gary manages a chain of restaurants called “Squeeze In” in California and Nevada. (You can read their story here). Misty wrote, as you’ll see, to share some of the “book reports” her managers had written on The Go-Giver! Here she is:
We enroll our restaurant general managers in a structured reading and personal development program we’ve created in house, which includes six books to read, along with meetings, quizzes, speakers, events, etc. The Go-Giver is on the list (as my personal favorite) and always ends up being one the managers love the best.
We pay them $50 for each book they read — a grand total of $300 if they turn their book reports in on time over the course of six months — and then, if they get each on-time bonus, they also earn an iPad. So far, we’ve given away eight iPads. Not one person has missed out. They obviously love the incentives!
I keep thinking you’d probably really appreciate what our folks have to say about your little book. The little book that is changing the world! As soon as I come up for air, I’ll go do a truly enthusiastic video review of the book on Amazon, and then I’ll start asking other folks to do the same on Twitter and will tweet my review. Will try to do this tomorrow.
Thank you so much for this gem. It’s really amazing. I hope you enjoy the book reports!

We did enjoy them! And Misty made good on her promise, too: her video review on Amazon is reader review #255, posted on December 4, and it is amazing. Thank you, Misty … and we are looking forward to our own plate of the Best Omelettes on the Planet®!
