View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Animals,Inc is a time-tested business parable that has been tremendously popular with Gallup clients for more than 30 years: it's a favorite at corporate seminars and has even been released on video. It's the story of a group of animals who want to get rid of their shortcomings, or weaknesses, in order to make themselves more efficient. They decide to attend a school to learn how to improve themselves. But as the rabbit struggles to learn how to swim, as the pig attempts to climb trees, and as the other animals try to improve their weaknesses, they end up frustrated, unhappy, and quarrelling with each other. This simple but powerful parable explains a basic, very vital business lesson: that people should learn how to focus on their strengths in their workplace and offices rather than concentrating on their weaknesses.

From AudioFile:

Taking a page or two (or four) from George Orwell's ANIMAL FARM, the authors offer a witty and cautionary fable for business managers and ambitious workers. The considerable vocal talents of Jim Ward are put to good use as he gives an entire barnyard of animals distinctive and funny voices, not to mention humans and even a scarecrow. This audiobook is worth listening to merely for its entertainment value, though the authors drive home some important points about managing a company with common sense instead of contradictory textbook formulas. Whether you're a sales bull or a manufacturing boar, listen to these animals for insight! D.J.B. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
