Every complaint represents an opportunity to turn something negative into a positive!

"Excuses always come from the losing locker room. In Jon Gordon's book The No Complaining Rule, he provides the winning edge."
—COACH LOU HOLTZ

"In a world in which so many, it seems, focus on the glass as half empty, Jon Gordon sets out a clear blueprint in The No Complaining Rule to help each of us better ourselves. His approach will cut negativity and can impact our workplaces and our families, and help us carve out more productive, lower-stress environments."
—NATHAN WHITAKER, coauthor (with Tony Dungy) of Quiet Strength

"Complaining is one of the biggest problems in business today. It undermines the effectiveness of a team and organization, leading to contempt and an inability to adapt and change. In The No Complaining Rule, Jon Gordon offers the antidote."
—KEN FISHER, CEO of Fisher Investments, Forbes columnist, author of The Only Three Questions That Count
