Excel Phenomenon book.

The Excel Phenomenon certainly has had its detractors. By covering only the successes and none of the failures, the book gives a distorted version of the truth. THE EXCEL PHENOMENON has great value as an explanation to the uninformed about an amazing opportunity that is still, for the most part, untapped in this country.

Now a million people — ambitious, hard-working individuals just like you — have started their own home-based network marketing business to sell Excel. Their success and satisfaction come through loud and clear in The Excel PhenomenonAs Kenny Troutt himself says in the introduction, these tapes prove that "it has never been easier to start your own business and strike out on your own. the opportunities have never been better for you to become your own boss, build a business with your family by your side, and take control of your time, your life, and your dreams."Listen and find out how.Also available in hardcover.

My wife, Sharon, and I are independent reps for Excel Communications and this is a terrific book to send to people who know nothing about Excel or network marketing. Network marketing is the wave of the future!! I am a slow reader; but I read this book in one day because it was so interesting that I could not put it down until I finished it! I am going to order a couple more of this book to send to friends!!!

A great book about EXCEL and network marketing in general. Much of what was written can be used for many mlm companies.

Love the book. To know that a season like this Phenomenon can happen to anyone. Find your wave and ride it.

This is a history book on deregulation as it happened in one company during the deregulation of tele-com. Any one who reads this will be jumping at the chance to take part in the current deregulation of gas and electric.

The Excel Phenomenon certainly has had its detractors. Doubtless, there are handfuls of people out there in Bookland who have been through the rigours of "Excel U" but not fared nearly as well with the product and the "system" as some of the prominent personalities featured in this book, proud of them as we are. Lookit, I'm slightly skeptical about this read, ok? The author makes a clearcut attempt to distance himself from CEO Kenny Troutt and the people at the top of the Excel Communications foodchain, yet (and for this, folks, you'll have to give it a solid concerted read) he waxes majorly poetic on the merits of the company, how it functions, the nitties-gritties 'n all, and this book appeared to me to basically be a primer on all things Excel-like. A posterior-smoocher.

I'm not saying that I minded it. I'm also not saying that it's unacceptable. It's just that if an author's going to state his bona fides, and then masquerade his copy as shilling for the principals of the company he writes about, I'd have to say that mightily stretches the bounds of belief just a wee too much for this reviewer's taste. Just be forthcoming. If you're going to boink me, then boink me properly is where I'm going with this.

Okay, so enough about the demerits of this book. On the positive side of the ledger, I enjoyed the "slice of life" portraits of the people whose lives were changed by Excel. It's heartwarming to read about real people going through real economic day-to-day crow. This isn't a rags to riches sort of thing. Some of the people described within these pages toiled at Excel for a long time and didn't necessarily see a profit return for, like, well...ages! It took them YEARS to build up a steady business and clientele, and in the meantime, like the rest of the working-stiff population, they had to take on menial jobs to make ends meet. Many of these profiles described were two-child families, with spouses who **both** worked. To read about how they ultimately managed to triumph and make it boldly back to the black is quite a remarkable achievement.

Will this encourage other people to emulate their successes? Hard to say. I recommend--at the very least--reading this book in order to, at first, glean some of the feel-good cream which will get you thinking differently about your lifestyle. I'd reckon to say that many of the people who get through Robinson's book will be jazzed up enough to want to go out and make a mega-change in their lives, and what's more, the bulk of the people who are reading this are typically in a "I wanna change my life mode." (Sure, there are people just reading it for reading its own sake...though not too many of those, I doubt). I hazard to recommend any one given book at the "silver bullet" solution as a source of motivation for readers. THE EXCEL PHENOMENON is precisely the same. Don't look to it as a "Bible" of sorts to glean all possible inspirations for the direction you think your life should be going. DO, however, look to it as that, perhaps, **final** book you're going to read that will propel you once and for all on that path through life which will ensure that you've got a steady stream of income which will prevent the need to have to alternately scrounge around for it constantly in dead-end jobs, working for "da Man," or possibly even getting stuck in an earn-spend lifer trap that nets you little in the way of positive net worth.

Robinson, through the device of Kenny Troutt and his cronies' Excel, shows you at the very least that a way certainly **does** exist in order to remove yourself from this dead-end matrix of taking out of your pocket what you toil and labour hours to earn.

The book's written in a no-nonsense style, easy to read, and I found myself liberally jumping between sections as a way to spice up the read. That's my indicator of a good piece of non-fiction, I'll have you know.

What the author is basically positing here, I believe, is that business phenomena like the "Excel phenomenon" are going to become increasingly more important in the early 21st-century. With the explosion of telecommunications products, and as more and more data gets pumped down that line, like TV and other wireless services, there will be many more people getting rich off of these products.

I didn't award this book the top ranking, only because I think that the author wasn't entirely forthcoming about his connection to the relevant Excel brass. It's hard to believe with something this seemingly rah-rah that there wasn't some kind of clever artifice and assorted payola in the mix here. Sorry, but just my $0.02.

Otherwise, it was a rather spirited read.

THE EXCEL PHENOMENON has great value as an explanation to the uninformed about an amazing opportunity that is still, for the most part, untapped in this country. It will have greater value many years from now, as Excel goes on to fulfill its destiny as one of the greatest companies ever built in America. Those picking up this book twenty years from now will say, "Wish I'd read it when it first came out!", because Jim Robinson is clearly urging all those who are unsatisfied with their financial lives to jump on our bandwagon. To me, this book's great importance is that it is the FIRST to chronicle the rise of Excel Communications. In the upcoming decades, it will be obvious that those who joined in the 90's were the visionaries, and at that time, Jim Robinson's enthusiasm will be seen as prescient. Meanwhile ... read it! Whether you love or hate network marketing, whether you believe in the American Dream ... it has something to say to everyone about faith and commitment in business.
I picked this book up (for free), hoping it was a regular business book. The kind that describes the pluses and minuses of the business. Instead, its almost entirely a marketing tract for Excel. Nowhere are some of the hard questions asked
-- How competitive are Excel's telco products compared to other Long Distance companies ?
-- How many reps earn more than $30,000 a year from Excel ?
-- What % of reps drop out ? What % of people reach the higher levels shown in the book and how much money do they make ?
-- How much time does this entire activity take for a rep ?
-- What % of Excel's revenues come from Long distance service, and what % from rep fees ?
By covering only the successes and none of the failures, the book gives a distorted version of the truth.
This book seems like a clever way to get around the FTC's regulations about network marketing (which requires more disclosure) by having a supposedly independent book.
I can only conclude that anyone who's given the book 5 stars is themselves an Excel rep in some fashion, because theres no other logical reason for praising this book. Don't even read it, let alone buy it.
