Editorial Reviews


"A fascinating read. I particularly enjoyed the interwoven stories of family and past experiences. I am so glad you wrote your story."

(Scott MacDonald Lynn Thurber, Chairman and past CEO, LaSalle Investment Management)

"Scott MacDonald's gripping account of his five year effort to steer a multi-billion dollar Australian company through the Global Financial Crisis had me up late turning the pages. I was in deep suspense as each challenge arose."

(Scott MacDonald Niels Marquardt, U.S. Ambassador (Ret), CEO American Chamber of Commerce in Australia)

"Scott has given us a rare insight into his life, culminating in an insider's view into a $6.5 billion Australian company on the verge of collapse as it is caught in the throes of the Global Financial Crisis."

(Scott MacDonald David Baffsky, Chairman, Ariadne, Honorary Chairman, Accor Asia Pacific)
