"Scott Snook has built a clear case from highly-detailed information. Putting all the data in one place, with numerous 'inside' examples and quotes, will stimulate many organizational theorists.

Abrams, U.S. Army Ret., Army--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
