"Geronimo Stone is certainly
an innovative way of presenting a business management model for
consideration. Craig Stevens has written a suspenseful fiction
novel, incorporating his educational, professional and Christian
background. The book is well-written and well-edited."

"'Geronimo Stone' is a
unique blend of fictional mystery written as a life drama. Craig
Stevens uses real business models entwined to hold the business
executive as well as the non-business reader captivated. Through
each chapter my interest was peaked and I could not wait to find out
what happens next. This book will make a great addition to anyone's
business or personal library."

"I’ve been in the corporate
business world more years than I want to admit. I quit reading
“Business Management” books years ago. They were either too warm and
fuzzy for my tastes or were retreads of the same tools and
techniques under a new buzz word. After the first chapter of fancy
color charts and the same old models in new clothes I was bored.
Geronimo Stone is different. I
won’t give any secrets away, but if you are a leader, think you are
a leader, or want to be a leader, you must read this creative
delivery of management strategy. If you are an excellent leader, it
will reinforce your efforts. If you want to be an excellent leader,
you will find the “mobile” to benchmark where you are against where
you need to be. Read the book and prove me wrong.
I really enjoyed reading this
book. Very creative approach."

“I did enjoy your book. I found
it to be "entertaining and informative" which is a nice combination
after a long day at work. It was easy to read not dry and sleep
inducing as I have found most management books. I think you have a
winner here. I look forward to the second installment.”

Geronimo Stone is a very entertaining as well as educational book.
Craig Stevens has written an educational book that reads like a
mystery. I found the book very well written. The strategies listed
in Mr. Stevens Mobile are very common in the manufacturing world,
but he has found a way to put them together in a very understandable
and rememberable way. I would, and have, recommended this book to

owners face today with an innovative business management model.

"Geronimo Stone pulled out the emotion as I felt the frustration with
Tommy, the sadness, strength, and humor of Aunt Brenda, and the
courage to face the destructive forces of greed from the
competition. The heroism of Geronimo in the midst of war made me
cry. Then, at the end of the drama, I realized I had learned some
vital business techniques without feeling the pain. I believe this
is the best way to learn...relating to others' losses and triumphs
makes you feel a part of the whole. This great work of fiction
introduced vital principles of everyday work ethics and
productivity. A must read for anyone who is striving for integrity
in the workplace!"
