Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"... a delicious read, a candy dish of witty reflections about the current state of management in a candid and disarming personal tone. Two thumbs up!"

Gabriel Szulanski, Professor of Strategy, INSEAD

"If the role of CEO is chief storyteller, Vermeulen's role is chief doubter ... You'll never look at business in the same way again."

Stevie Spring, Chief Executive Officer, Future plc

"disrobes the emperor of conventional wisdom to reveal how things really work in the strange business of business ... ."

Costas Markides, Professor and holder of the Robert P. Bauman Chair in Strategic Leadership, London Business School

"Every so often a book comes along that re-frames business, Business Exposed does just that in a face-paced, smart read, chock full of insights that you won't expect."

Kathleen M. Eisenhardt, Stanford Warren Ascherman Professor of Strategy and Organization, Stanford University

PARES BACK THE CORPORATE VENEER WITH A SCALPEL AND EXPOSES THE NAKED TRUTH ABOUT HOW BUSINESS REALLY WORKS

CEOs' style of functioning is presented threadbare. It is an eye opener for CEO's who better spend time on the working of the organization and make it better than trying different types of management impressions which has no bearing to their organization.

A book necessary for all involved in management and corporate world.
Great value for business consultants too!

The fact that existing business practices and mindsets are challenged and reframed makes the book not only educational but also a practical and useful "map" to explore the business "territory" . In an entertaining way!
