"Great book! Lots of very practical information about how to get in the "other person's shoes" and exceed their expectations.

"For 20 years I've known and admired Tony Alessandra. The Platinum Rule is truly his "master work." It is a fun read with substantial research behind it. Tony and Michael O'Connor are the two Ph.D.s to listen to on this topic. Nobody has more to offer on this subject...nobody." Jim Cathcart, Author of Relationship Selling, Professional Speaker

"No one makes it to the top alone. In business and finance the success we achieve is in direct proportion to our ability to understand and communicate with people - our customers, our employer, and ourselves. Drs. Alessandra and O'Connor have cracked the code of the perplexing human personality. Communicating with people on their terms, not our own, is the key to creating an efficient staff, a loyal customer base, and mutually profitable business relationships - all of which result in higher productivity and increased earnings potential. The Platinum Rule is the single most effective tool for learning how to get exactly what we want in life by helping others get exactly what they want - the win-win we're all seeking. How could anyone interested in maximum achievement not know The Platinum Rule? Buy this book. Read it. Become its student and put its extraordinary technologies to use immediately for Platinum results." Tod Barnhart, Author, The Five Rituals of Wealth

"Understanding not only your own personality type, but also that of others is vitally important to all relationships. The Platinum Rule offers clear and quick guidance on identifying and understanding those who think differently from you and improving your relationship with them. Whether you are looking for help with personal or professional relationships, you will find easy to apply answers in The Platinum Rule." Florence Littauer, President, CLASS Speakers, Inc. Speaker/Author, Personality Plus, Put Power in Your Personality
