The Excel Phenomenon is very easy to read and depicts a true "rags-to-riches" story. You walk away with an honest look at an industry that is growing by leaps and bounds, a company that has capitalized on that growth and the Man who made it happen. Not only will you learn how simple the concept is but how you can be part of it! James Robinson was able to capture and honestly report on the integrity of the company, and many lives that are drastically changing as a result. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is intrigued by the ever changing world of communications or is looking for a way to enhance the quality of their lives and helping others to do the same. And the story doesn't end with the book....

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.

The Excel Phenomenon is a very well written history of Excel, It's founder - Kenny Troutt, and mostly - the Excel opportunity.
It is probably slanted at being a recruiting tool for Excel reps. Which is actually a brilliant idea. But, it can take away from the book also when readers finally realize that they are being recruited.
Robinson does a fine job of profiling Troutt, and many successful reps. Excel really is a tremendous financial opportunity that Robinson clearly articulates.
I would reccomend for everyone reading this review to diversify your income, through Excel or through another source (actually several). When you have a few small streams of income coming in from various sources the final result is financial security. You'll never be trapped if one of the streams of income stops.
This book is the tip of the iceberg, for several of Excel reps, Kenny Troutt, and possibly you.
I personally haven't used the Excel Phenomenon to recruit for Excel, but I read it before I joined as it helped me with some of my research.
If you're thinking about joining Excel, give it a read. It's a well written eye opener.

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.

James Robinson has done a good job of describing Excel's wild ride to success. He shows the reader how much credibility and integrity this company posesses, and clearly demonstrates that Excel is leading the Network Marketing industry from being misunderstood and on the fringe to mainstream and highly respected.
The book illustrates why Network Marketing, and Excel in particular, is a concept whose time has come because of the convergence of several factors - namely the sharp increase in home-based businesses, diminished loyalty in "conventional" employer/employee relationships, advances in technology, and deregulation of the communications industry.
As a former skeptic, I can say that this book goes a long way toward giving the Network Marketing industry the respect that it truly deserves. As an Excel Representative, I can say that like any business, it's not without its warts. But then, we all decide what to make of what we are given, don't we?

There's a great business story about a young man who grows up on the wrong side of the tracks, begs, borrows and steals his way through college and several failed business ventures, yet goes on to found one of the largest telecommunications firms in the world and take his place among the billionaires on the FORBES 400. If you're interested in reading about that story...THIS ISN'T THE BOOK FOR YOU. This is a 200 page brochure for the Excel Business Opportunity without the color glossy pictures. If you're interested in learning how you can join the American Dream, start your own business, work from home and live the lifestyle of the rich and famous by selling long distance service to your friends and neighbors, buy the book. Or save yourself the $20 bucks and attend their next pep rally coming soon to your hometown

Finally, a "no-hype" piece of information simply based on the financial success of everyday people! I'm talking about "stay at home moms" (I am one thanks to this business) ,professionals, and just about anyone from any background. You don't need over exaggerated, inflated falsehoods about trying to be a millionaire when the simple truths about how this NYSE company has provided a solid opportunity to earn income from the use of services the masses use 24 hrs. per day. The company took a simple concept but with expert management, planning, and operations has taken the industry by storm. If you're looking for answers, facts, and an opportunity that will turn your finances around - this book is a must read and the venture is a must do.

As an independent representative for Excel, I anxiously awaited the release of this book not knowing what to expect. Lemme tell ya -- it was worth waiting for! With millions of Americans looking over their shoulders, wondering when the corporate axe is going to fall, this book provides an insight into a trend that is sweeping the country -- self-sufficiency! If you've come to the realization that the only person who is going to take care of you is yourself, then Robinson's book will let you get a first hand look at how others have achieved that independence and how you can too. Timing is everything in business -- and without question, this book is about the right business at the right time. All I can say is "WOW!"

This book is a logical, in-depth review of the company, the marketing plan and several reps. Read between the lines and you will see yourself... someone who wants more out of life.... not necessarily money, maybe time freedom. Understanding how simple the EXCEL strategy is will be the hard part for most people. It is simply a team of people who have decided to work together rather than struggle in isolation. EXCEL may or may not be for you.... but if it isn't, what will you do to hedge your life against insurmountable odds that you will be downsized, right-sized or simply capsized by "Corporate America". Buy the book, invest some time and you could reap the rewards hidden between the covers.
