Forced to take the bus to work, George meets a unique kind of bus driver and an interesting set of characters (passengers) that over the course of 2 weeks share the 10 rules for the ride of his life... and attempt to help him turn around his work and team and save his job and marriage from an almost inevitable destruction."

I read this book as part of a development program for the company I work for. The book was a great read, not at all boring and kept me entertained and interested. The information it provides to improvement leadership styles is absolutely great! I wish I'd read this when I first started my career!
Stuck in the middle.
I really enjoyed this audiobook that I downloaded on my iphone until I got to the middle and it got quiet. I can't even play the second half on my Mac.
The audiobook was great for an hour and 19 min. Then nothing. Can listen to the rest at all. Apple is hard to get a hold of. Don't waste your 12 bucks.
