“Most business books give you everything you need to do anything you want except the only thing that matters: get results.

“What on earth could pre-thawed turkeys, Eva the dolphin, and toothpaste tubes squeezed from the middle have to do with the success of your business? Everything. Results Rule! is that rare business book that you can't put down, and you shouldn't, because the lessons within aren't just helpful, they're vitally important. It's fitting that Randy Pennington would write a book on results, because he's known in the business world as being THE go-to guy for help on creating results for his clients. Randy doesn't mince words and he doesn't waste the reader's time. Don't put Results Rule! on the stack of books you mean to read soon. Buy it, take it home, and read every word before your competitor does.”
