Bob is an avid reader and has developed an extensive library of Don’t Need to Read the Book summaries, which are available. Although not now required, I would prefer you first complete the NetWeaver Diplomat course. Also these summaries have been written with author’s permission but with the understanding that they will not be sold.

Here is a sample paragraph from one of Bob's book summaries:

REMARKABLE!” – Dr. Randy Ross & David Salyers (Foreword by S. Truett Cathy – Founder and CEO, Chick-fil-A). “I have always believed that a good name is more desirable than great riches.  While profits are important to any business, maintaining a strong sense of values and living out your convictions are imperative. . . .And while there is much discussion about the need to create a compelling corporate culture in the marketplace today, very few understand the dynamics at play and how to address them effectively.  Taking simple truths and placing them in a corporate parable, REMARKABLE! provides the reader with both an enjoyable format and transformational insights.”
