Buy the book! I've known Garf for many years and have had the luck and opportunity to have spent many one on one hours with him. He is a mentor, leader and teacher- and maybe a bit of a philosopher. Bottom-line-- he is a gentleman first and foremost who understands people and how to talk with them to develop a win-win relationship. He teaches that hard work and persistence mean everything; perception is reality; what gets measured gets managed; and ethic is the key. If you read his book, you will get inside the mind of a wonderful person and become much the better for it.
