Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Far and away the most insightful and inspiring book yet on the fine art of motivating others. A new standard has been set by Carmine Gallo by engaging the reader in the realization that attitude and conviction are the key to making your mark and changing the world, as well as inspiring your colleagues to be their best. "I couldn't put it down!"
Gallo's secrets to fire them up includes for example:
"Ignite your enthusiasm" which means that you cannot inspire others if you don't burn for your own idea/message - well duh...
"Reinforce an optimistic outlook" - to get people exited you should be optimistic and a "beacon of light" - Come on!
"Paint a picture". Hey, it's great to use storytelling...
The problem with Gallo's book is that none of his so called secrets just is common sense that everyone already knows. Fire them up doesn't present anything new or something that the reader can use to improve their skills.
