Look at what one website who reviewed the book said!
"(This book) reminded me of those by Patrick Lencioni, another author who understands the value of the story. Here, Mercer uses the fable of the tortoise and the hare as a backdrop for down-to-earth advice on how to set and achieve goals.
Mercer alternates an imaginative lead up to the classic race told from the tortoise's point of view with chapters summarizing the steps to take to first decide what to do and then achieve the desired results. He even includes worksheets" Frances Thomas, Examiner.com
