This book will inspire you. It will change your life in ways you can’t know now, but you’ll understand completely once you’re done reading it.
It will also forever enhance the way you look at your role as a leader. That includes the way you lead at home, at work, in your community...and especially the way you lead you.

“A moving read. Over the past twenty years as a principal, I’ve always been interested in what makes an organization successful. For me, many of the characteristics of Thomas’ businesses are what I do. Being able to see them in a different light is very helpful and is confirmation for me that my beliefs are right. This book has the perfect blend of a human story line with excellent leadership practices. It keeps you involved while addressing not only thought provoking management skills, but a powerful philosophy of life.”

We also want the people along with us to be growing, successful and happy. This book has the right mix of examples, concepts and emotion to help leaders achieve that.”

- Mario, Netherlands
“There are a ton of books on leadership, but not since the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (Robin Sharma) have I read a book that brings all the best leadership concepts together in one engaging tale. With each passing page I wished that I knew the leader described in this book. If even half of our political and corporate leaders operated in the manner so eloquently described in this book, the world would be an extraordinary place. After reading this book, I realized how important it is for each and every person to step up their leadership ability… starting with me!”
“Thank you for your great books. They are very inspiring.”
- Sven Heine

I started reading your book Saturday morning and finished it Sunday afternoon….I could not put it down! I want to give copies of it to all my “leaders” in my organization because I think they all need to read it. Again, you inspired me and I wanted to just say thank you!”
- Beth Lambert
“I often advise people to read your books or gave them as presents. Thank you for giving us some great inspiration!”
“My eyes were opened and I picked up new perspectives through this book. I consider it a must read for my friends and staff. Museum Day Morning is my favorite takeaway. That concept gives me an important tool, a visual tool, for focusing on what is truly important to me. You have a winner here.”
- Kevin Sabourin
