I just remember this felt a little too "fluffy".
Review by jpsnow
Upbeat allegory through the story of a failing manager who happens upon an energetic bus driver and her team of passengers, which transforms his mindset. I heard nothing new here, but the telling is novel. It's a worthy and catchy reminder about adding positive energy to the mix, and leveraging it for success.
Review by KimJD
The message is a good one in this short book, but it is a real shame that the editing (or lack thereof) is such a distraction. Wiley Publishing should be ashamed of themselves for the horrendous job they did... there's no excuse for the lack of commas (several passages could be used in the next "Eats Shoots and Leaves" edition) and very blatant errors throughout.

I was asked to review this by the Nursing Times and what an inspirational book this is.What was it like?This was exactly what it said on the tin. This follows George from the moment he wakes on the dreaded Monday morning and typically he has a flat tyre. Life for George is disorganised and so are his team. So when a new product is launched he needs to get a grip on work and home life. He needs to take a bus to work. Thus begins the reconstruction of his life and work. What were the highlights? This was a great positive book and so enjoyable at the same time, some books of this type can be hard going and not only does the reader have problems, but the book becomes an irritant too. Not so in this case. This is such an easy book to read and I have to confess to reading it in one sitting.This book is believable and the reader can take some or all of the ten rules in George’s ride of his life. The characters on the bus were real and believable and all played their part to help George in his working and personal life.Strengths & weaknesses:The strengths were that the reader gains inspiration from this. The weaknesses are with the reader – if they do not realise life is too short then the reader had failed to gain anything- I doubt any reader not to gain creative inspiration. This is written in a really easy format to read.
