Fish! Tales is Stephen C. Lundin, John Christensen, and Harry Paul's follow-up to Fish!--their enormously popular fable that draws lessons aimed at combating dysfunctional workplaces from the happy fishmongers at Seattle's Pike Place Market. In Fish! Tales the authors show how these lessons were put into practice at businesses both big (a major hospital and long-distance carrier) and small (a local car dealership and roofing company). Anyone who enjoyed Fish! (or, for that matter, Who Moved My Cheese?) or is looking for a motivational tool to help energize their own workplace, should find this short, upbeat primer worthwhile. --Harry C. Edwards --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
This is the sequel to Fish! (2000)--four life lessons learned by observing workers at Seattle's Pike Place Fish Market. And although that book inspired some awful puns, this follow-up book not only captures Fish!'s philosophical essences--play, be there, make their day, and choose your attitude--but also showcases four examples of success, from a well-regarded hospital in Missouri to a Rochester, New York, car dealership. The similarities? Repetitive and boring work and dismal work environments, all in industries reputed to offer less than desirable careers. Lundin and crew document with care the four befores and afters, intersperse brief Reader's Digest-type anecdotes, and then outline 12 personal activities for a dozen weeks--whether it's a gratitude journal or my favorite random act of kindness. Change does indeed happen one person at a time. Barbara Jacobs

I like this book. It is a quick read. Finished it and QBQ on one flight with a meal. If you read "THE GOAL", the format of this book will be similar. Read morePublished on Jan. 20 2003 by Robert A. Drensek
