Has one beautiful sentence

The idea is amazing and the anecdotes are somewhat inspiring, but sadly, there isn't that much that goes into the concept. The whole book can be comprehensively summarized in pretty much two or three sentences.

Great concept but left me wanting more

This book helped me to think harder about gifting and the positive byproducts associated with giving a quality gift, but it felt like mostly a promotion for his company.

I would have liked to have seen different and more gift examples... in the whole book he only mentions about 10 gifts that he and his partners have used. Also, the continual mention of bonus info if I go to his site and download the resources felt manipulative.... i bought the damn book so give me the info without jumping through hoops.

I like the idea, but overall it was lacking actionable steps and resources to make the process of "giftology" easy to implement.

I do not recommend this book.
