Mark discusses the book
MidwestBookReview.com: “Connecting to others is a guide to find success in any avenue of life. Nice Bike: Making Meaningful Connections on the Road of Life is a guide to forming those little bonds that mean so much in the world of business. Through two little words used as an example, the simple phrase of ‘nice bike’ lets you know that you understand what’s important to them, are willing to talk further, and acknowledges them.
