Reader Quiz – Guess the Lean Blog Global Readership


Here's something new to try — a way of giving away a copy of my book Lean Hospitals: Improving Quality, Patient Safety, and Employee Satisfaction.

What percentage of Lean Blog readers are from the U.S. (or at least a U.S. server)?   What country is #2 in readership? Come take a guess…Take your best guess using the poll box below and see what others are guessing. Answer will be revealed on January 18.

[polldaddy poll=2520148]

To have a chance to win the free copy of my book, leave a comment on the blog (with your email address) with your guess as to the country who is #2 in readership. I thought just guessing the U.S. percentage might not be a good contest in and of itself since the voting might lead to the right answer. The contest to guess the #2 country. I'll reveal that and the U.S. percentage on the 18th. Note: if more than one person picks the #2 country correctly, I'll do a random drawing of those people to choose one winner.

In an ironic twist, if you're outside the U.S., I will send you $40 in an amazon gift certificate or via PayPal. International Shipping is outrageously expensive for a book!

  1. i would of said the U.K. but since its already taken I’ll say for my offical entry that the 2nd place goes to Germany.

  2. I’ve gotta go with Canada as #2 behind the U.S.

    And Mark, has a career in always marketing been a 2nd passion of yours?!? (kidding)
