    1. 1- پیام اصلی کتاب «ویل دان» بر سر تشویق و ارائه پاداش مناسب به پیشرفتهای هرچند جزئی و انجام دادن صحیح کارها بود که معمولا به چشم نمی آیند؛ در مقابل نادیده گرفتن اشتباهات و رفتارهای نادرست و هدایت آن انرژی به سمت اصلاح رفتار. این پیام با مثالهای گوناگونی از محیط کار، منزل و حتی ه [...]

    2. I picked up this book because all the managers at work had to read it. It looked like an easy read and, hey, I like killer whales :)The book started off like most "power of positive persuasion" books, but as I read on, this one became a little different for me. While it definitely had good ideas for the workplace, half the work was about using positive methods to better your marriage and relationship with your children. I really enjoyed the book.w if only I can get my husband to read it!

    3. What a great book on the power of positive relationship. It's just short and concise. We can apply the philosophy and take it into practice with not only in the workplace but in our daily life, our beloved family.

    4. It tells a story of a manager, who manages to get his life balance back by applying Encouragement, Positive feedback in his daily conversation.The book promotes positive atmosphere, with happy ending. It provides a few examples on how to apply the technique. I would love to see the author expand on how the manager works with 2 uncooperative employees.Overall, it's an easy read.

    5. I read this for the Women's SIG Online Book Club (the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy). They like to select short books, since the members are busy. I was skeptical from the start because I have a bias against fictional short stories where the author uses the characters to introduce "principles" that they've discovered to be true in their personal experience. I prefer a more evidence based approach.There's nothing wrong with the advice given, really. Accentuate the positive. Praise [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this book! It has inspired me and helped me realize how much power I have to affect those around me. I am currently reading the Parenting version and I am beginning to implement these things with my family. I think one of the biggest things I am learning is the importance of setting up success! People may never meet our expectations if they are not clear on what those expectations are. Finding positive things to praise is not always easy, but makes all of us much happier and mor [...]

    7. Positive relationship is the key to open and turn all of the difficult situations. Why? In a nutshell, it is human being and only human being to build and develop or destroy this world. This short book inspires and reminds this through the experience with how to train a whale, the "monster" of the sea. The principle is exactly the same to build positive relationship with all people around you, including your co-workers, your friends, your parents, your kids, your relatives. Once you can do that [...]

    8. My boss wants me to give a little blurb on this book for our next staff meeting. It's a super quick read on how to improve relationships at work, in marriage and with children. I honestly liked reading it. I thought I'd worn out from reading marketing/business strategy books, but this one renewed my desire to keep focusing on rewarding progress rather than using and practicing negative attention; this of course comes easier to most of us.

    9. I picked this book up because I had previously read "Raving Fans" and found it cheesy, but valuable. I feel similarly about this book. It's short and an easy read. It's cheesy. And it has some really good basic concepts and tools that can be put into use to make a difference in your communication and effectiveness.

    10. نگاه مثبت خیلی جاها شنیده بودم، اما نکته جالب این کتاب تاکید بر نگاه مثبت و صداقت بود.

    11. Great principles, a little repetitive, and the storyline was a somewhat cheesy. But definitely worth the read!

    12. To start off, SeaWorld has always inspired me. They have taught me to conserve, to care, and to love animals, but I never thought it could teach me how to improve my relationships. This book was recommended to me by “AskSeaWorld” and when I saw how accomplished Ken Blanchard is, I was heartilly excited for this book. It was absolutely fantastic. This book was not only informative, but fun to read. The book well describes the SeaWorld training process while also showing how we can turn our n [...]

    13. Overall, this is a decent book. The basic principal is a good one that also makes sense. It was also a very fast read, which is part of its downfall. I would have like more details on redirecting undesirable behavior, as I feel like this is where I would get hung up most. Everything is made to seem so easy in this book, and the way the story is presented feels rather contrived - a lot like a hallmark movie with cheesy dialogue and a nice ending with a bow secured tightly on top. If it indeed too [...]

    14. A great review of the how-to fundamentals of the power of positive reinforcement (familiar to me from back in the day as an undergrad Psychology major learning about B.F. Skinner's operant conditioning research from the 1930's). Ken Blanchard of "One Minute Manager" fame partnered with whale trainers in 2002 to share that both animals and people respond better when you build trust, focus on the positive, and redirect when mistakes occur. Interesting to note with news earlier this year from Sea W [...]

    15. A quick read in story form. The overall message is good and, from personal experience, proven to be effective in practice. The story itself can get a little "fluffy" at times. (And that's coming from a person who's been called fluffy himself!) That said, because it's a quick read, I still recommend it as a gentle reminder for anyone in a leadership role, or just aspiring to be a better person.

    16. Sure, It reads like the script of a 1950’s educational film (“Gosh Andy, you sure did a swell job on that report!”), but - as with most management and leadership books - if you can pan through the dross you’ll find a few nuggets of gold.

    17. The book was written 15 years ago, but still I feel the concept of praising the positive applies today. Good points to use in our daily lives, at work and even more importantly, at home. Easy to read.

    18. It wasn't a horrible book. The overall concept was pretty elementary but I was able to take away a couple of new tools.

    19. This book was super short and should have been a fast read but I just could find myself getting into to it. Had a very good message behind it but I just wasn't really in the mood to read it.

    20. The book had some good messages that could be very helpful in one's personal and professional life. It is all about being positive to get the results you want.

    21. Good information, but the story was really shallow Definitely worth reading if you can get over how cheesy it is!

    22. Book has brilliant action oriented points to develop positive relationships with people and lead a happy life.

    23. Though this book is usually recommended for the Managers to read, but I feel everyone should read this book! It is an easy read with very basic principles one can use in both work and family relationships."Accentuate the positive, not the negative."

    24. A very simplistic self help book told the way of the Wealthy Barberwhere characters interact in their every day life while espousing the principles of good management, good relationships etc.It had good points and I can see how these principles would work. Reward good behaviour, ignore bad in order to get the best out of people. Very short, easy to understand and no need to take notes.

    25. This is the power of positive thinking. It will help you not only at work but at home with your relationships

    26. If you liked The One Minute Manager, you'll like Whale Done! This time around, Ken Blanchard teams with trainers from Sea World to write a parable about how the principles for training killer whales can apply to management and family life. This book is even more centered around focusing on the positive, praising progress rather than waiting for perfection, and redirecting unwanted behaviors to get people refocused on your shared goals.[return][return]I'm currently reading Ed Catmull's Creativity [...]
