What separates the good from the great? The answer is simple: 1 degree. At 211 degrees, water is hot. A single degree more and it starts to boil. And with boiling water, comes steam. That one extra degree has created a whole new industry - a multi-billion dollar industry, in fact.

This simple analogy reflects the definition of excellence. Because it's the one extra degree of effort - in business or life - that can separate the good from the great. This powerful book by Sam Parker and Mac Anderson gives solid examples of how to incorporate their philosophy into all aspects of your life, at work, with friends, and as a parent. 

Great quotes and great stories illustrate their concept in a memorable format. A warning... once you read it, it will be hard to forget.
