Share your thoughts with other customers. Write a customer review. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Bell and Patterson bring insights, passion and clear writing to their book. While many of the examples are drawn from the world of retail service, their explication of strategies for creating a powerful "story" and client experience is just as relevant to and perhaps more needed by professional service firms, not-for-profit programs, and yes even government agencies.
I happened to read this book as the same time I was reading Jim collins' "How the Mighty Fall," two very different examinations of organizational performance.
The Collins book is a well crafted head trip; Messrs. There are a lot of management books out there, this one will go into my flight bag to be shared with consulting clients who are trying to reconnect their enterprise's raison d'etre with current customers, stakeholders and staff. As an avid reader of books on customer loyalty, I can say without reservation that this is not only the most comprehensive description of what you have to do to hold onto your customers in today's market, but it is also a handbook of what you have to do to have those same customers dragging their friends over to also do business with you.
While I agree with all the other reviewers so far, I must also observe that their reviews fall short of the mark. Not because those reviews are inaccurate, but simply because they don't go far enough. The book is indeed worth your time to read as one reviewer said. It is fresh and novel and packed with insight as another said. And it is definitely a great read. And the reviewer who predicted that "it will be one of the most well-worn companions on your bookshelf and one book that you will consistently recommend to others" was right on the mark with that prediction.
But none of those reviews capture the full impact this book can have on you and your business because no review - including this one - can capture the full impact because the richness of the detail, the exquisite blending of theory and practice, the pragmatic and imminently actionable ideas, the strength of the authors' suggestions, and the obvious depth of their knowledge.
