Editorial Reviews

Review

"Neil Giarratana provides real-world advice for CEO survival based upon more than 30 years experience as a CEO. He weaves humor and irony into many of his critical insights and recommendations--never losing sight of an important central premise for CEO success: the intertwining of toughness and caring in the leadership of a company and its employees."
--Alan Hassenfeld, chairman of the executive committee, Hasbro, Inc.

"Neil Giarratana has written an insightful and compelling book, going beyond the usual rhetoric and generalities to provide an incoming or up-and-coming CEO with a granular and actionable blueprint for settling in, setting new strategies, and changing old patterns and cultures. Neil has lived for decades at the face of the CEO coal mine and provides realistic and practical advice for handling

the messy, day-to-day challenges that CEOs actually face."
--Stephen P. Kaufman, senior lecturer, Harvard Business School, and retired CEO and chairman, Arrow Electronics, Inc.

"A truly unique book on business leadership because it addresses thecritical, practical, and behavioral issues you will face as a leader which are not part of any business theory, model, book, or journal nor covered in leading MBA programs."
--Fred Steingraber, chairman and CEO emeritus of A.T. Kearney

All serious investors need to read this book. Neil dissects the corporate facade and thoroughly reveals the foundations for corporate success. The book is a manual that reveals in extreme detail the inner dynamics that make or break a company. He leaps past classroom ideology and brings to our consciousness his experience as a successful corporate leader.

If you are a private investor you need to study this book. If you have investment managers you need to send them this book.

Format: Paperback
This book, properly named CEO Priorities, is a concise and insightful road map for success for all CEOs and aspiring CEOs. The author has taken his 30 years of experiences and has presented them in such a staight forward fashion as to obtain maximum clarity for the book's readers. I found the lessons presented in the book to be very useful in helping me fulfill my daily CEO responsibilities.
