Can you be a "Fred"? I know you have met a Fred. How can you make others feel special and make yourself a special person doing it. A great challenge.

Most of life is made up of routine, ORDINARY, uneventful, boring events and activities. By changing our attitude, and attacking these events with sincere caring, PASSION, and an intentional servant heart - we can transform these events into something EXTRAORDINARY! The people around us are better for it, and we are better for it - we find purpose and joy in the "ordinary" events. It is simple... revolutionary... and transformational... a must read.

A quick and inspirational read. Nothing groundbreaking, but very good, positive, upbeat object lessons for anyone hoping to perform their job with passion and excellence.

I found this audio cd almost unlistenable due to extremely cheese synthesized music played for long periods of time in conjunction with the audio speaking. I would not recommend the audio book. Also, not impressed with how he talks about Fred or uses him - sounds more like a moralistic stereotype than Fred would probably want to be portrayed as a balanced human being.

Story about a great mailman . . . not one I ever had. Thin, thin, thin. I should write these books for a living - I have more business savvy.
