One of the most fascinating stories I ever heard was by Croce, here is my recount:

Erich Weiss believed he could escape from any prison. He had a standing offer that he could escape any cell within twenty minutes. Finally a warden took him up on the offer, knowing the skills the magician possessed. Indeed, he was famous for escaping chains, straight jackets and handcuffs. This time the warden would have none of that, just a jail cell he believed would hold the peculiar entertainer.
Meticulous plans were made for the occasion, the magician having one requirement; that he be left alone in the cell with no observers. He didn't want his secret method to get out. Led into the cell, the magician waited until the guards were out of sight, then produced a small pick and went to work on the lock. Unable to pick the lock as an hour passed Erich Weiss didn't open the door in the allotted time.
Finally, leaning on the door in frustration he felt it open. It had never been locked. The warden knew the magician would assume it was locked, but it was all in Weiss's mind. The escape artist had been duped. You might not be familiar with the name Erich Weiss, but surely you will recognize
28 The Life That Is Really Life
the name by which he is known to the world, Houdini!

Croce's book is about setting yourself free from the illusions that hold you back so you can lead others to a passionate life. Croce is passionate and will help you open you eyes to see so you can begin to change your world!

Pat Croce's I FEEL GREAT AND YOU WILL TOO! is one of my

all-time favorite motivational books . . . he followed it up with

110%, another winner . . . and his latest, LEAD OR GET

OFF THE POT!--written with Bill

Lyon--is every bit as good.

Croce, the onetime president of the Philadelphia 76ers and

current NBC commentator, presents his ideas on leadership

in this lively book . . . but don't feel you have to be a

leader to get value from it . . . what he says applies to

every walk of life, including sales, teaching and even

parenting.

I particularly liked the many examples that Croce uses . . . they

were taken from his ventures as an entrepreneur, basketball

executive, TV commentator and volunteer chairperson for the

2000 Republican National Convention that was held in

Philadelphia.

And unlike the feeling that you get with some authors who like

to impress you by throwing names around, you really get the

impression that Croce knows and is actual friends with everybody

he mentions . . . in fact, he is a big believer on being on a first-name

basis with folks and suggests that you use their existing nickname

or christen them with a new one . . . as he notes, "This puts

people in your inner circle and raises the bar of affection and

respect--even when the nickname is seemingly sarcastic. Some

of my best memories are stimulated when I heard the nicknames

Fast Eddie, Rayman, Scramble Head, Hole, Hollywood, . . .

Shaggy, Snowman, and Bubba Chuck."

Perhaps my only problem with LEAD OR GET OFF THE POT!

is that it contained so many useful tidbits of information that

I found it hard to find just a few to include in this review . . . however,

that said, I did find these especially memorable:

* In team sports, the ultimate measurement of your value as a leader

comes down to two questions: Do you make all those around you

better? And are you able to combine their diverse and disparate

talents and personalities into a cohesive unit?

* Of course, I like to take the Golden Rule and crank it up. Don't just

do unto others as you'd have them do unto you; do unto others

as you'd have them do unto you in your wildest dreams! Don't just

provide service; slay them with super service! Go overboard. Turn

over every stone. Do more than is expected, or even conceived.

And apply these killer tactics to everyone from customers to

employees to family to friends. The little extra you may have

to put in will always earn out.

* Hello.

And good-bye.

These are the basics in customer service, in human relations,

no matter what your business. You greet the person with a hearty

hello, and you bid her good-bye with equal vigor.

Even if you don't really mean it.

This book by former Philadelphia 76ers president Pat Croce doesn't break any new theoretical ground about leadership, but Croce makes the heavy lifting required of exceptional leaders look and sound attainable. Good leaders, Croce says, should be servants, not dictators. His fast-paced, motivational primer is an entertaining, anecdote-filled, step-by-step guide for starting and leading change, complete with no-nonsense tips and salty, locker-room exhortations ("If you rest, you rust," "Don't let your thinkin' become stinkin'" and several that are less printable). Particularly compelling are Croce's homespun tales about the boyhood lessons he picked up on the mean streets of north Philadelphia. His local heroes include a Catholic nun who turned a dream into a homeless shelter and his father, "the original Pat Croce," who taught his son how to out-negotiate a hustler for a great deal on a leather coat - but to do it with integrity. Croce dispenses advice in a series of to-do lists peppered throughout the book, including "Twelve Ways to Build a Passionate Team," "Croce's Three Rules for Praise;" the "Six C's of Communication;" the "Ten Commandments of Service" and more. We recommend this book as a lively and colorful read, and a worthwhile reminder that good leaders are made - not born. They are reflected by the teams they create and the values they live by day to day.

There are a lot of books on leadership. Enough so that you'd almost think that there are no universal rules that apply in any and all situations. Perhaps the real answer is that we are all made up of people. People are different, both the leaders and the led. Some can work well together and some simply cannot.

Pat Croce's management style is one that he has developed over many years. It works wonders for him. He has also been able to convey his management style to others through writing and seminars. More than talking about management, Mr. Croce has actively seen business opportunities and exploited them by forming companies he then successfully operated and often sold for very good profits.

The book has an open and casual writing style that is both entertaining and informative. If you can pick up just one tip that will work for you it is well worth the cost and the time.
