          Great Recognition Gift
          I teach a course in global leadership at a major university and give "You Can't Send a Duck to Eagle School" to each student. This book perfectly reflects my fun style of teaching. It is the perfect thought starter (or reminder) for the busy person. It is a easy quick read and conveys as much as the thickest textbook
            Bottom Line:
            Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

            You Can't Send A Duck To Eagle School
            Great material. If you do not start with good potential, there is no way to make an eagle! All businesses who employ others should get this book and follow the instructions on how to make the proper decisions.

              You Can't Send A Duck To Eagle School
              First thing, the above name is wrong, so some cold uncaring system doesn't really want my opinion! So far the book is great, I'm scanning it during down time at home.
