    It is a very simple message that is not pursued often enough. Genuinely care about your business associates...show interest in them as people...and profits (not only monetary) will follow. Leaders who care inspire loyalty, and are more quickly forgiven when they make mistakes. The author provides so many examples of this business philosophy with ample evidence that it works. I also found it intriguing to read some of the results of his pondering in his business poetry..."Not an oxymoron," as he It is a very simple message that is not pursued often enough. Genuinely care about your business associates...show interest in them as people...and profits (not only monetary) will follow. Leaders who care inspire loyalty, and are more quickly forgiven when they make mistakes. The author provides so many examples of this business philosophy with ample evidence that it works. I also found it intriguing to read some of the results of his pondering in his business poetry..."Not an oxymoron," as he once noted. His background in both the military and as the head of a magazine publishing house has given him a unique perspective mixed with "down home" wisdom of the common sense variety. Loving people in business is an attribute often expressed as "respect" because "love" connected with our jobs (outside of a religious order) makes many of us feel vaguely uncomfortable. Yet love in the sense of "what happens to you truly matters to me" is the ultimate secret to engagement. The author does an outstanding job of expressing this. This is one of the best leadership books I've ever read.

    I gave it four stars, only because I reserve five for books that I will talk about unprompted. The title is provocative enough because "love" and "profit" are two words that don't often go together. The lessons within are important, inspiring and withstand the test of time. (If I remember correctly, the book was written in the early 90s.) If nothing else, read and ponder on the section, The Job or The Work.

    I read this book for a class at FCCJ ....Leadership with BJ Haussman Pofessor. After reading, I completed a paper on this particular style of Leadership....Caring Leadership. Guess it is what is being referred to of late as Servant Leadership......

    This book is a great manifesto on how to care.....business is so hateful sometimes, we forget that business is really not the point of life.

    This book reintroduces love into the workplace. The common sense that's in this book is what we already know but is written in a way that's memorable. This will change the way you lead everyone.

    Such a guiding principle for leaders. I find myself talking about this book even now, so many years after I read it. When you really care about someone, that is when you can lead them most effectively. This book is a must read for me. - Colleen Ferrary

    This was a difficult read in that had a difficult time reading it. I am not sure why after all this time but that is what I remember.
