You will never regret the few hours it takes you to read this book.
Monty Rainey
Naturally, an encore performance always entails commitment (the author's breakdown of it into 6 elements is remarkable!), professionalism, skills, values & integrity.
Lee Say Keng
IF you want to see a truly positive difference a book can make, this is the one.

Format: Hardcover
Reading THE ENCORE EFFECT by Mark Sanborn kept reminding me of something my father used to tell my brothers and me when we were kids growing up. "Boys, never settle for doing a good job when you have the ability to do a great one." My father is gone now but his sage words live on.

There is so much to like about this book. That statement my father used to make really sums up what this book is about. We human beings have a propensity for doing just enough to get by or on our good days, doing a good job. For me the point was really driven home at the conclusion of the 6th grade when my history teacher handed me my 4 part essay with a note that said, "See me after class." I got 3 100's and a 95, so I was certain that he wanted to praise my work. What I got instead was a butt-chewing for not putting forth that kind of effort all year long. He said in 20 years of teaching it was one of the best essays he had read, so why didn't do that kind of work every day?

Between my dad's sage advice and the reprimand of Mr. Simon, my 6th grade history teacher, the message stuck, but it is reinforced here by Sanborn's book. The beautiful thing about this book is, there is not a person alive these lessons don't apply to. I started to say, "If you work for a living, you need to read this book", but that is not all inclusive. This is also for students, stay-at-home parents (yes, I know, they DO work), and even someone who's current job is looking for a job, there is always a way to try a little harder, to give just a little more effort. That's what the encore effect is all about.

Written in typical Sanborn fashion, this is a quick and easy read that is packed with wisdom. You will never regret the few hours it takes you to read this book.

Format: Hardcover
As Mark Sanborn states in the inside cover of his new book, " everyday we are called to perform - at work, at home, in our communities. But is it possible to make every performance outstanding, the kind that leaves people appauding for an encore?" It is possible! I think about these words, and where our world is at this very moment! So many people just try and get by with their lives, jobs,and passions. What happened to striving for excellence? The Encore Effect, By Mark Sanborn, is the best book he has written in my opinion. He will motivate you, inspire you, and lead to to changing the things you are doing to become greater! The book is a fast read, about 2 solid hours. You will highlight his points and benefit greatly from his words! Buy the book, read it, and APPLY it in your life! We should all command an ENCORE! .

The Encore Effect: How to Achieve Remarkable Performance in Anything You Do
Review by Richard L. Weaver II, PhD.

The first and most impressive part of Mark Sanborn's book, "Encore Effect: How to Achieve Remarkable Performance in Anything You Do" is his heavy use of interesting examples. This is a well-written, interesting book full of practical, useful suggestions. Does it offer something totally new or unique? No. But, there are some insights cast in a slightly new way. For example, with respect to speeches and presentations, he offers four ways for affecting an audience: 1. Move them to act. 2. Make them feel good. 3. Cause them to laugh. 4. Stimulate them to think. His discussion of passion (i.e., it invigorates, inspires, sustains, comforts, initiates, completes, and enhances) and his four insights of a passionate performer are worth considering. His six p's for delivering a performance (i.e., passion, preparation, practice, performance, polish, and pitfalls) cast well-known ingredients as an alliteration. Sanborn's book is a useful starting point for those interested in excelling.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mark E. Christensen on October 2, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Mark Sanborn's powerful true story of a postman re-defined the "Service" in "Postal Service" was my first introduction to his work.
My commentary on his second book can only be summed up in the title: "You Don't Need a Title to be a Leader"!
I was more than excited to dig into his third book, "The Encore Effect" which completes my personal library trilogy of Sanborn books!

The reason I love each one of these Sanborn gems is because they teach powerful principles that can easily be remembered and applied in daily living. And to be honest with my busy schedule they are a quick, enjoyable airplane read!

"The Encore Effect" brings Mark's skill for framing masterful principles out into the light and onto the stage! The five P's; Passion, Preparation, Practice, Performance and Polish can be applied to transform average results into extraordinary success!

Bravo on another winner Mark!

This book is one of the most vital books I have read on the reason people want to retain an individual. The Encore Effect, is just that an effect of what you have put into something.. Speech, homework, presentation, honey due list etc... Why is that the Grateful Dead played for so long? Why is that Johnny Carson stayed on TV for so long? The reason as explained in this fine art work, is they did their home work, they practiced, the started with an end in mind--they as well, as the everyday person have the same opportunity to succeed and to continue to succeed...We just have to stay on top of our A game at all times--gain more knowledge, read books, read articles that pertain to our interests, and read ones that my not pertain but are used for personal growth. Being invited back is just a saying, in this book it gives us great examples through the authors life stories, and real stories that he has put together on how to better understand the significance of listening to others, asking for feed back so we may gain a few more steps in our lives. I enjoyed the authors work, and I refer it to your library.
