After many years of diligent research and work with a wide range of clients, consultant and speaker C. Richard Weylman has found the answer to these questions. The truth is, customers don’t care if a business is different or that its products are unusual. Trumpeting achievements like “We were voted #1 again,” “Rated best service three years running,” or “We’re experienced!” doesn’t engage buyers emotionally. That’s seller-centric thinking in a buyer-centric world.
When customers are deciding where to buy, they have one thing in mind: Why should I do business with this company? Will it solve my problem today? Buyers want to do business with companies that are willing to make a customer-centric promise of expected outcome: up-front and unconditional. This isn’t just a slogan; it has to be in the company’s DNA, consistently delivered through all parts of the organization. Think Michelin, whose promise - “A better way forward” - centers on the consumer, a shift that helped it pull ahead of rival Goodyear, which continues to trumpet its products' popularity.
The Power of Why tells listeners how to elevate their business performance regardless of their situation or position. Offering the same actionable, hands-on strategies Weylman has used to help companies of all sizes grow in the toughest conditions, The Power of Why is the new manual for business survival and growth.

Outdated and just plain wrong
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I think the information is quite dated, and is no longer useful.
Has The Power of Why turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, the book is just outdated and focused on the wrong things in business.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
No -- the narrator was okay.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
This book never actually talks about why. Instead, it talks about how -- about the processes, the product, but never the why. Try "Start with Why" by Simon Sinek instead.
