    Why I Choose this Book A family friend highly recommended this book, so highly in fact that he bought it for us. Plus I like Art Williams writing style. I've heard some of his talks on audio and so sometimes I hear his voice in my head when I'm reading his books which is pretty cool. What I Thought about this Book I haven't read a lot of Art William's books, but I want to read more. His style is easy to read and very down-to-earth. You can tell he really loves people and genuinely wants what is b Why I Choose this Book A family friend highly recommended this book, so highly in fact that he bought it for us.

What I Thought about this Book I haven't read a lot of Art William's books, but I want to read more. His style is easy to read and very down-to-earth. You can tell he really loves people and genuinely wants what is best for others. Pushing Up People was inspiring to read; it reminded me that even though aspects of reaching my writing goals can be difficult, it's still worth it to push on and continue working. Pushing Up People covered a wide range of topics from making goals to having the right kind of attitude to how we should view failure and how praise is more powerful than punishments. Overall the book is geared toward leaders and the correct way to treat their employees, but I think the book is a good read for anyone. Conclusion I enjoyed this book and breezed right through it. I hope to read it again because it is chocked full of solid principles and good advice. Rating I'm giving Pushing Up People four stars and recommending it to anyone twelve and up although some portions of the book don't exactly apply to that age group.

    Some of the info is dated, but overall, the success principles in this book are timeless! Each point is specific and explained in the plain language of a southern football coach. We have an old copy, which looks typed and is set up a little tight as far as spacing on the pages is concerned, so it can be a bit confusing to the eye. However, the info is well worth getting past the layout.

    Put helping others a priority This book has put my mindset on a different platform. I have always put others before myself and I throughly enjoy helping others. Now I know the example has to start with the way I perform personally, socially, professionally, and intellectually. Thank you book club for giving me this read.

    My father is one of the people on the cover having worked for A.L. Williams at the time. I read the book and wrote a report on it for an allowance bonus when I was around ten. I can’t say that I recommend it for a ten year old, but if your parents are paying it’s not a hard read.

    Great focus on what truly matters. Clearly spells out the differences of being a manager versus a quality leader. Worthy of periodic re-reading.

    I'm sure this is a great book for someone starting a business. I don't even know why I read it. Motivational, yes. Interesting, yes. Exciting, not so much.

It turns out that when you do the right thing , people figure it out, and they come back, and they bring their friends and family!

Ultimately, we build better business, and make more money by treating people "good". Every business person should be required to read this book. Every person should be required to read this book. And Art proved it: it works! It works better than the other way.

    Worthwhile read I like his simple and truthful approach. Simple but not easy. I like his emphasis on hard work and ethics - a rarity spoken today.
