From the Inside Flap:

Renowned consultant Joe Calloway has made a career out of helping businesses create competitive advantage through unsurpassed customer service. He knows from experience what separates ordinary companies from companies that dominate the competition. In Becoming a Category of One, he shares the proven business lessons he learned by watching great companies get ahead of the pack and stay there.

Ordinary companies compete in their categories, or even lead them. Extraordinary companies create their own categories by doing what no one else does–in effect, becoming a Category of One. Here’s how they do it: they get to know the customer better than anyone else in the business and connect with that customer better than anyone else can. They transcend commodity by offering more than just a product. They defy comparison by doing what their competitors can’t or won’t do.

Becoming a Category of One shows you how these companies do what they do so well, and gives you the tools and ideas you need to emulate them. Full of case studies and personal reflections by leaders of Category of One companies, this book is designed to help anyone transform their run-of-the-mill business into an extraordinary company–whether you operate a multinational corporation or a mom-and-pop shop.

Calloway doesn’t offer any mumbo-jumbo or flavor-of-the-day buzzwords, just simple lessons that lead to real, proven results. With his guidance, you’ll learn what makes some of the best companies on earth so successful–and then learn to apply their winning strategies to your own business. You’ll learn what makes Tractor Supply Company different from any other retail chain and why LensCrafters is the only household name in eyeglasses.

If your company is treading water or losing customers, you have a difficult choice to make. You can hold on to the ideas and techniques that got you this far and hope they work again, or you can find a new way to give customers what they can’t get anywhere else. If innovation frightens you, then put this book down now. If you’re ready to take your business to a new level, then read on . . .

From the Back Cover:

Becoming a Category of One, Second Edition

Joe Calloway's Becoming a Category of One redefined competition with its lessons on how to truly differentiate yourself in a marketplace of sameness. In this revised and updated Second Edition, Calloway rethinks, repositions, and reenergizes that message. A new chapter on "tiebreakers" provides lessons on differentiation from companies like Zappos, Apple Computer, Netflix, Café du Monde, Hyundai, and In-N-Out Burger.

Calloway also includes cutting-edge ideas on the Category of One company of the future from an extraordinary list of guest contributors, including bestselling authors Larry Winget (It's Called Work for a Reason!) and Mark Sanborn (The Fred Factor), Gen-Y expert Jake Greene, Pinnacle Financial Partners CEO Terry Turner, business strategists Randy Pennington and John Spence, branding expert Jack Sims, corporate consultant Chuck Feltz, customer service gurus Scott McKain and John DiJulius, sales and marketing expert Sue Remes, and motivational legend Jim Cathcart.

Praise for Becoming a Category of One

"Shows what it takes to build a brand on something more than just product. This book inspires us to go for greatness and to win by using our hearts as well as our minds."
—Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager

"Becoming a Category of One will delineate how you can differentiate yourself from others who do what you do, how to become positioned in your marketplace, and how to make your customers love you and need you."
—Jeffrey Gitomer, author, The Little Red Book of Selling
