Format: Hardcover
I recently received Get Them on Your Side and Keep Them on Your Side as a gift and was quite delighted. As an entrepreneur who endeavors to start new businesses, I was indeed surprised how relevant and useful these two volumes are. Bacharach clearly understands what it takes to launch ideas and keep momentum going. I wish I had these books in my corner awhile ago, but I'll keep them on my shelf and rely on them as I manage my growing business. Who says academics can't write for practitioners?

Format: Hardcover
"Keep Them on Your Side" is a terrific follow up to Sam Bacharach's "Get Them Your Side". Too many executives give short shrift to the difficult leadership and hard political work necessary to get things done. Where "Get Them on Your Side" highlights building coalitions to build support for your ideas and make things happen, "Keep Them on Your Side" shows you how to keep your coalition together, keep members motivated and moving toward your goal. As every leader knows, most projects die for lack of follow through. As someone who has taught about leadership and cultural change for 20 years, I highly recommend these books as must reading for every one who wants to be an effective leader in his/her organization - whether it is a corporation, union, non-profit, or a government agency.

Keep Them on Your Side is the fabulous follow up to Get Them on Your Side, and I can't recommend it highly enough! It's an absolute must for everyone who wants to know how to take the skills they developed with Mr. Bacharach's first book to that next level. This book is filled with ideas on how to maintain the alliances you built and keep the momentum going right through to the successful conclusion of your project.

Both books are absolute gems and already read like classics in the field. You can't have a better guide through the political minefield of the business world than Mr. Bacharach.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAME on October 3, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This sometimes surprising book presents principles that many managers will be able to apply immediately. Samuel B. Bacharach writes clearly and maintains his focus on a single cluster of ideas: His main points are that implementation is an essential part of leadership, momentum is an essential part of implementation, and as a leader, you can maintain momentum by focusing on its key elements, which he explains and illustrates. He includes examples from many disciplines and historical periods: his use of Lewis and Clark as leadership models was one of the book's pleasant surprises. However, Bacharach is better at describing common dilemmas than at solving them. Once he's persuaded you to balance "directive" and "facilitative" leadership, you still have the big challenge of figuring out how. Even though some of his concepts are not entirely new, we recommend this book to leaders who want to brush up on basic principles, and who appreciate seeing them refreshed and reframed.

Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed the follow-up to get them on your side. It was an outstanding piece of work that helped my organization transition into the seconds phase of a very important project. It was rough getting them on my side but it is extremely harder to keep them. This book focused on key fundametals that aid in that process.
