Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANtastic and fun. The author of "Raving Fans" took an extremely important factor of business and made it simple. His presentation of the was light and entertaining and lead you through the entire book without putting it down. His fairytale approach made it enjoyable, and very easy to grasp...if you make one person very happy, they will tell their friends of the excellent service they received. If you give one person average service, they may or may not come back. But, if you give someone less than adequate service, they'll tell the whole world! Anyone who must deal with people on a daily basis (managers, customer service, purchasers, ...etc.) should use this fun tale as a reference in their everyday lives. Excellent!
