"Book titles do not get a lot more arresting than "Why Are There Snowblowers in Miami?" But there is more to this pithy treatise on everybody’s favorite subject of engagement than that.. it is a straight-talking look at why big companies typically fall short with an introduction to some smart principles..”

-- Roger Trapp, Forbes

"The new principles of engagement, as well as the dysfunctions of the old, are well illustrated in a new book, "Why Are There Snowblowers in Miami?" by Steven D. Goldstein. He speaks from a wealth of personal experience in private equity, as well as top executive positions... [Steve] defined five key engagement principles which resonate with me as just as relevant for new business founders as mature business executives."

-- Marty Zwilling, The Huffington Post
