   Self Promoting Marketing Brochure Rehashing Management 101
Airport convenience stores have this kind of consulting. The author states his method will solve all your problems in the first four paragraphs. He claims to have the expertise of his mentors. He claims to have turned around and sold his family's business. He bragged about his dad. Did you say you turned around the family business? I think dad wasn't that great. The family of books used to funnel more consulting business from executives who shouldn't be in their seats because they need to be seen doing something. There are a lot of pages. I suppose to increase the page count. The author is deceiving you. He's trying to open a bank account.

   Practical and useful
I have been running businesses and coaching CEOs for 30 years. One of the most useful guides for turning a good business into a great business is Traction. The man knows about businesses, people, and processes. His six segments cover everything that is needed to get hold of a business, plan its future, get everyone aligned, and move forward with purpose and efficiency. His useful tools for holding meetings, for planning, for evaluating people, for measuring results are all available for free on- line. Every manager would have a copy of this book and we would follow the meeting pulse suggested in Traction if I were still running the company.

   Not Traction!
I crack open " Traction" today and it opens with a Revolutionary war letter, but I am still reading. I get to read chapter 2 and chapter 3 of the Revolutionary War stories. The book under the dust jacket is actually a book about the rifleman. How can this happen? Is that right?

   Don't bother.
The whole scheme is based on the fact that an incompetent business owner is looking to bring in a competent individual to make the business succeed.

   The value of this book depends on context
The front of the book made me think. Do this, follow these steps, everything will work out. The model became clearer as I read on. I started to see similarities between the author's framework and the books I' ve read before. The recognition made it clear that the key tools are trust, teamwork, leadership, commitment, vision, alignment, accountability, process, data, and so on. The approach that other people have crafted as their own was as important as the author's approach. The core principles are the same even if you put a different name on the package. Progress is possible if the leadership team recognizes the building blocks and assembles them diligently. The framework has potential with that in mind. The book has value in my opinion.

   Very helpful system to keep your company on track if you have big dreams for it.
One of the most helpful books I' ve read is this one. If you' ve read any of the E- Myth books, you' re on the right track but this book gives the science behind building systems and how to write them and implement them as well. If you have big dreams for your business, this information will help you stay on track. If you want to follow an actual company implementing what you' ve learned, you should first read his book Get a Grip. It makes it easier to comprehend.
