A book that is at once highly readable and highly thought-provoking. The purpose of the book is to educate and entertain. It does both, and to a high degree. --Stephen Gageler, Solicitor General of Australia
Whilst applicable at all levels, the book has particular value as a reinforcement tool for new Directors. It has great applicability to the NFP sector and would be a great "aide memoire" for trainers.
--Geoff de Lacy, Governance Consultant
Dilemmas sheds fresh light on how directors make a contribution. This is a refreshing change from the more conventional recitation of the various functions and duties of directors.
--Ralph Evans, former CEO Australian Institute of Company Directors

From the Author
Good judgement is developed by bad experience; so how can directors develop judgement without suffering the experiences?
This book is an aid to developing good judgement. It will be of interest to aspiring and experienced directors alike. The case studies are drawn from real life situations which have been fictionalised to preserve the anonymity of the protagonist and to clarify the issues. The advice is practical and pragmatic.
I wish I had read this book before I served on a board. It would have saved me much frustration as I learned through trial and error how to apply practical solutions in a complex environment.
