From the Inside Flap:

The 3 Big Questions for a Frantic Family

Theresa Cousins had never been so mad at her husband. Ironically, the comment that sparked her anger wasn't really directed at her specifically, and certainly wasn't meant as criticism. In fact, he said it without maliceor emotion.

"If my clients ran their companies the way we run this family, they'd be out of business."

In this unique and groundbreaking book, business consultant and New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni turns his sights on the most important organization in our lives—the family.

Having experienced the stress of a frantic family firsthand, he and his wife began applying some of the tools he uses with Fortune 500 companies at home, and with surprising results.

Like Lencioni's other books, The Three Big Questions for a Frantic Family is written as a fable, using realistic and humorous characters and plotlines that will keep readers turning pages with anticipation while they're learning how to bring sanity to their lives. And they'll be amazed how just a little bit of structure and a few minutes of follow-through each week can make the difference between drudgery and fulfillment at home.
