"Anyone who wish to understand how Asian corporations such as DHL, Giordano, Shangri-La Hotel or Singapore Airlines 'think', 'dream' and enact service must read this book. It is clear, crammed, full of examples and written in a readable and unfussy style." -- Professor Colin A. Carnall Director of Programmes, Henley Management College, Oxfordshire, England
"Compelling and well-written. The only book I know of that examines Asian company exemplars in the context of service marketing. A must-read for those looking to Asia for business development." -- Richard Whiteley, Award-winning best-selling author of Customer Centred Growth
"Educating managers around the world on the importance of outstanding service, I am regularly confronted by legions of exercise supporting inaction in the name of cultural differences. This book directly confronts the excuses that impede service quality improvement efforts among Asian firms. The unqualified success of Asia's leading service companies as documented in this book serves as the missing link in promoting service quality in this part of the world." -- Leonard A. Schlesinger, George F. Baker, Jr., Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
"Service Asia provides helpful benchmarking information for business people looking for an edge in Asia." -- Allen Chichester, Chairman Greater China, Leo Burnett
"The authors have produced a lively and practical book that shows, with copious Asian examples, how understanding the value of good service can be a key factor in the success of a modern corporation." -- Nury Vittachi, Senior Writer of Far Eastern Economic Review and author of several books including Asian Values
"The current Asian financial crisis is a wake-up call for all business executives that they cannot rest on their laurels. All businesses have to continually maintain and increase their values to their customers. With detailed case studies, the authors show how service value could be created, and perhaps offer us some insights into how to survive the current and future crisis." -- Dr. Gilbert Wong, Executive Director, Poon Kam Kai Institute of Management, The University of Hong Kong
"Timely book that demonstrates how service tigers/leaders in Asia stay ahead of competition. Useful learnings that can be applied especially in the current economic crisis faced by the region." -- Deborah O'Hara, Managing Director of Connective Management
