Review: Tipping Sacred CowsUser Review - Melissa Porter - Goodreads
Jake is an awesome lecturer -- he came to my office as part of a corporate training program. The book has great ideas and examples, but you could probably read a summary of the 7 "sacred cows" to learn as much as you do through the book in full. Read full review
