4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price - but be realistic, Dec 28 2011
This is a great tablet for the price, but you have to be realistic with its performance and capabilities. The quality of the image is terrific and it can do most of what more expensive tablets do. However, not all features are straightforward to figure out (and the integrated manual is sometimes not explicit). For reading books, you will have to adjust the luminosity, which could be easier if there was a stand-alone button.

4.0 out of 5 stars A recipe book for providing recognition, April 11 2003
This review is from: The 24-Carrot Manager (Hardcover)
This is an easy-to-read book providing useful tips on how to develop and implement a recognition reward program in your organization.
It offers suggestions at a macro and micro levels. Therefore, you can benefit from it no matter what type of managers you are. There are numerous best practices shared from a wide range of private companies.
In my opinion, the authors spend too much time demonstrating the importance and the benefits of recognizing employees' contribution. If you read the book, it is because you are already converted, isn't it?

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, interesting ... but somewhat repititive, April 11 2003
It is a fairly comprehensive social analysis that describes the Canadian mindset: recent past, current trends, the causes behind some of the paradigm shifts mentioned in the book.
The findings appear to be based on a wide range of studies and statistics, but unfortunately the authors do not mention their references in footnotes or in a bibliography.
The book describes in great lengths the "Tory Touch" that differentiates Canadians from the Americans. However, the authors are quite repetitive throughout the book.
I would recommed it to anyone interested in learning more about how Canadians perceive their national priorities and objectives. It would be particularly useful to people involved in politics and social policies.
