HASH(0xa1be7708) out of 5 stars Excellent book - required reading for anyone that wants to motivate their team Nov. 12 2007
By Aaron Wheeler - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book after reading about it on a blog that recommended it as "required reading" for anyone who wants to motivate and engage their employees. I was not disappointed. It's full of excellent case studies from leaders who the author personally interviewed. It contains the kind of stuff you don't hear in business classes, or frankly, most business business books. It's probably one of the best and most memorable business books I've read in a long time.

Fire Them Up!: 7 Simple Secrets to: InspireColleagues, Customers, and Clients; Sell Yourself, Your Vision, and Your Values; Communicate with Charisma and Confidence

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!"

HASH(0xa2426018) out of 5 stars Catchy motiviational book - but a bit cliche... Feb. 26 2008
By J. A. Kunzler - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am happy I bought the book for a client and me because of the promised presentation tips. Also the book served as a bit of a motivational tool, but also was a bit too cliche for my taste.

4 stars.

HASH(0xa2426504) out of 5 stars Secrets to who? Sept. 3 2012
By Henrik Ohman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I picked up Gallo's "Fire them up" a few years back but didn't get around to read it until last week. The book consists of two parts: 1) presentation and walk-thru of the author's "7 simple secrets" and 2) presentation of a number of persons/cases who applied "the secrets".

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.

HASH(0xa342cc84) out of 5 stars He Has Done It Again! Oct. 8 2007
By D. D. Hewitt - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Another great book by a great author! Carmine has the wonderful ability to make writing look so easy. After reading his last book, "10 Simple Secrets Of The World's Greatest Business Comunicators", I was anxious to see the next one. He didn't let me down! Everything Carmine touches seems to turn to gold.
