"Michael Michalko alters thinking, and his books alter actions.
Creative Thinkering is amazing in three ways: it's easy to
read, easy to understand, and easy to apply the minute you read it.
Every time I read a chapter in a Michael Michalko book I learn
something so new, I say, 'aha!' So will you."
-- Jeffrey Gitomer, author of The Little Red Book of Selling
