    product description

    212º The Extra Degree is a must-have in every personal and business library. A Simple Truths #1 bestseller, the concept is simple: At 211º, water is hot. At 212º, it boils. And with boiling water comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive. The one extra degree makes the difference.

    This analogy reflects the ultimate definition of excellence. The one extra degree of effort, in business and life, can separate the good from the great. The 212º concept is vividly illustrated for every aspect of your life through powerful stories that will inspire and motivate yourself or your team to the next level of success.

    We hope that you will join the people, businesses, and schools that have taken action and adopted the 212º concept and used the ONE extra degree to attain their goals.

    *All paperback orders will require 5 business days for processing before shipping.

    212
    Great book shared with teacher and tennis coach and both loved it. Also watched the 3 minute movie today and shared with both plus my insurance agent who has over 100 employees and told him to watch if and I was going to send him a copy. Plan to share with several board members of an educational foundation on which I serve.

          I have begun reading 212, and find it very encouraging, with some good examples of what even just a little bit of extra effort can accomplish. I plan to use material from 212 in my teaching in an effort to stimulate others (and myself) to greater heights.

            212 - The Extra Degree
            This book is great! We gave it to 35 staff colleagues who worked with us as facilitators in a recent national training. I definitely recommend it to anyone who has given that extra 1 degree!
