What People are Saying

  •  Great for us volunteers, but everyone in service should read! I volunteer for a large, national non-profit, and found this book great reading. Most of us volunteers are not “professional” fund raisers or PR people — we are just ordinary people with day jobs who volunteer for causes that we are passionate about. This book gives great tips that are useful when interacting with our clients, donors, and community groups.

    However, everyone in a customer service postion should read Smile! Every story I have ever told about receiveing great customer service, I can find a section in this book that illustrates it. For example, there is a florist where my mom lives who knows me by name, so she gets all of my business — calling a customer by name is in Chapter 2 of Smile.

    Similarly, every story I have ever told about horrible customer service, you can find where they were violating the recommendations from Smile, such as not knowing the products they sell (what good is a saleperson who doesn’t know their products?). I am tempted to buy extra copies to give to people who have not learned these lessons, “here, this is for you, please read the whole book, but especially page 38 on not making the customer wait.

    I highly recommend this book!

  •  I read Smile and thoroughly enjoyed it!! I saw a lot of tips libraries could use. The layout was so user friendly that I wanted to read more.

  •  How you approach people sets you up for life and Smile teaches children these important people skills. They will use the valuable skills they learn in this book to become successful adults in their personal and business lives.

  •  A little gem of a book that all teens should read. Details common sense hints to help teens gain the people skills they need to get and keep a job, as well as succeed in school settings. The layout is pleasing and easy to read. Wish I’d have had it when my children were teens!
