"I enjoyed reading Board Games a great deal. It is full of very topical and detailed information for both novice and experienced board members alike, and it takes on the tough issues, like cyber security and executive compensation, in bold and straightforward ways. Montford and McCool provide some comprehensive and rigorous guidelines and tools for board performance and self-evaluation. This is a how-to book designed to support the can-do posture required of today's boards. I will keep this book in my library and refer to it often." (Thomas W. Gilligan, Tad and Dianne Taube Director, Hoover Institution, Stanford University)
"John knows where boards have been and especially how their Audit Committees manage risk. Joe knows where boards must go and he brings equal depth and insight about the board's Nominating function. Together, Montford and McCool pack a powerful statement on the independence of board directors―and how you can make a real impact on effective governance―in the pages of this book." (Roger Kenny, Managing Partner, Kenny Boardroom Consulting)
"If you want to be a better, wiser, and more independent board director, this book is your code-breaker and action plan. It's your move." (Ed Whitacre, Chairman Emeritus, AT&T Inc., and Former Chairman and CEO, General Motors Company)
"McCool and Montford have distilled years of experience with high-level boards into this book―a how-to manual of the highest order. It provides the type of information board members need to make an impact and feel confident in the process. Slip this book into your briefcase before your next board meeting!" (Marcia Ballinger, PhD, Board Chair, Capella University)
