    WOW! If you ever need to initiate a positive change in your organization, consider Roxanne's experiences as a guide to "get it done!" Loaded with examples, a quick read begging to write notes in the margins. Have read 3X and recommended to several small businesses. If you shy from change and truly enjoy the status quo, stay away from the excitement of this book. WOW!

    Who wants to be miserable at work 40 hours a week or to view their job as just a means to a paycheck? Work should be fun, challenging and inspiring; and we each have the power to change our workplace environment beginning with ourselves, regardless of the position we are currently in. "Most people spend their entire lives in unquestioned routines, never hearing the calling of how great they could be if only they refocused on making a profound difference through their work--no matter what they do. Who wants to be miserable at work 40 hours a week or to view their job as just a means to a paycheck? Work should be fun, challenging and inspiring; and we each have the power to change our workplace environment beginning with ourselves, regardless of the position we are currently in. "Most people spend their entire lives in unquestioned routines, never hearing the calling of how great they could be if only they refocused on making a profound difference through their work--no matter what they do." (location 354, Kindle format) Thank God It's Monday! is inspirational for anyone who has ever had a job, from a receptionist to a sales person to the CEO, because we all have an impact on the success of the company or organization we work for. Understanding how we fit individually within the bigger picture and that every one of us has the power within ourselves to change the culture of our workplace is the key to making a difference. "Leadership is not a position--it's a way of being. It's about being determined to make big things happen regardless of your position." (location 494, Kindle format) Emmerich tells a lot of great stories about "leaders" who make a difference in their company just by showing up to work every day and being fully committed to the vision. She also gives examples of team members who just "don't get it." As managers or co-workers we can coach those people to see if we can help them, but ultimately, if they are not willing to get on board with the vision, it may be best to help them see that it's time for them to move on. "If most of you have positive attitudes, but the customer is exposed to one bad attitude, it reflects on all of you, on your whole company's culture, and it will impact your business." (location 1300, Kindle format) I found this book to be very inspirational and would encourage anyone to read it if they're interested in improving the culture of their workplace. Even if you work in the greatest company in the world, you're bound to come across co-workers who challenge you in some way (i.e. the victim, the whiner, etc.). Emmerich provides practical suggestions for how to deal with these situations and move on for the good of the company.

    This book is a gloss-over of concepts that have been covered much more effectively in other books. It offers no concrete evidence or metrics to prove the success of culture-building programs or the effects on a companies bottom line.

It offers no concrete evidence or metrics to prove the success of culture-building programs or the effects on a companies bottom line. (Although the book does try to vaguely describe large companies in such-and-such industry who realized a 2000% increase in profits just 5 minutes after their hoopla team met for the first time, and other such unfounded claims. Like many of these quick-read leadership books, the author attempts to interweave her theories with a story about "real people". But, the dialog between the one-dimensional characters is about as realistic and compelling as the side of a cereal box. The description of how one character at her steak, and the accompanying side dishes, was the most engaging and memorable part of the story. If you really want to inspire culture change at your business, don't count on this book as being the catalyst.

    Okay, I'm giving this three stars because it's a very upbeat book, with a positive message. It's inspiring, and it did rather make me want to be a better employee. But... It just plain doesn't fit my situation. It's ideally suited for someone in a medium to large company, and probably of more use to someone who's fairly high up the ladder, though some of the advice it intended for people in the lower ranks. For me... well, there are only 7 people where I work - that's including myself and the thr Okay, I'm giving this three stars because it's a very upbeat book, with a positive message.

For me... well, there are only 7 people where I work - that's including myself and the three owners. It's an unusual situation, but one where I'm not likely to be making any big sweeping changes. But the book did help me to think a bit more about how I handle myself at work, and it had a very "readable" style, so I wouldn't call it a waste of time.

    I wanted to like this book, and it has some great thoughts about how someone should conduct herself while grinding through the work week. Ultimately, though, this book is just too theoretical to be either worthwhile or interesting. There is no data and conversations in the book are laughable. That's to say nothing of the parable of the business owner who wouldn't take his customers' advice, and wound up divorced four times, filing for bankruptcy three times, and dying at the age of 65 while livi I wanted to like this book, and it has some great thoughts about how someone should conduct herself while grinding through the work week.

That's to say nothing of the parable of the business owner who wouldn't take his customers' advice, and wound up divorced four times, filing for bankruptcy three times, and dying at the age of 65 while living penniless at his daughter's house. Take heed, corporate workers!

    I thought this book was great for individuals - very down to earth, very practical, very in-your-face. I like it less for business application. I think it's next to impossible to change people unless they choose to change - the only solution advocated here is to fire or suggest resignation to those who won't get on board. Great if you don't fear getting sued or aren't working with a union. Anyhow - powerful personal message about taking control of your own life and stop blaming others.

    DNF (did not finish) An annoying series of platitudes about making a happy and productive workplace. The goal is worthwhile but the content is self-evident. Her inclusion of boxed, highlighted sound bites on every page that is a quote from the very same page is a waste of space and highly distracting. It is just fill in a book that is mostly fill to start with.

    What a refreshing take on management with a smile and a wink. More managers should adapt this positive approach to the week. It is okay to be happy and positive at work.
