Product description


I've always been a firm believer in the expression -Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.- At a time when stressors are at an all-time high, this book serves as a gentle reminder that our demeanor, disposition, and overall presence has a huge impact on the results we get in our work and lives. Buy it, read it, and remember one degree does make all the difference in the world. At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils.; One degree can make all the difference! -- --Joel Katte Author of GREEN BAY PACKERS IQ tr...

This small, simple book is a must have for everyone. Its profound principle about going the extra degree easily applies to the professional and personal parts of our lives. It spread through our organization in just weeks and has become part of the vernacular. When we talk about setting goals, we ask the question: Is it 211 or 212? -- --G. Fechter

My company provided us with this book in a recent training. Most of the training's are boring and something memorable for only a short time. This book is not that. The simple metaphor used in the introduction, and the entire basis of the book is very meaningful and easy to see in action. Today I hear so many people complain and feel that they are entitled to things instead of taking responsibility for their actions. This book shows that the smallest increment of effort can have positive effects not only on your professional life, but all aspects. This book uses real life examples that are easily relatable and prove the point. This is a quick read, but definitely worth the price and definitely applicable to life. I highly recommend this book. -- --Mark Trollinger
