Customer service woes that'll make you laugh out loud -and cringe in fear

Let's face it. Getting good customer service these days is about as easy as winning the lottery. In this enlightening collection of true stories, Hal Becker takes a look at how bad customer service has gotten and what can be done to improve it. On the up side-the book features companies which are the best at meeting customers' needs and giving hassle-free help (rather than a lot of lip).
