I almost didn't buy this based on the user review that the book slams Republicans and Creationists. After thinking twice, I ended up buying the book and listening twice. This is not a book about politics, but about ways to be nice and the ideas are good. I found it interesting, helpful, and engaging as I start a business. If you'll have a problem with a couple small, minor comments about Republicans, I suggest you don't get the book. Just know that you'll miss out on the many good ideas in this book. Be nice!

For selected audiences

If you are from a city where people are nice (the authors have never left NYC), then this might be a revelation, but a waste if you are from middle America because you are already experiencing niceness every day.

Furhter, the authors are obviously Democrats, as they used the book as an opportunity to reveal that Republicans are sneaky and wily. So Republicans might not think the descriptions were nice.
