Editorial Reviews


"Henry Mintzberg's views are a breath of fresh air which can only encourage the good guys."  The Observer

"One of the most original minds in management."  Fast Company

“A refreshing antidote to the footnote-laden tomes that usually make up the field.  Meaty enough to be serious yet also pleasantly entertaining
Harvard Business School, Working Knowledge

"This is a naughty book, a really cheeky little brat of a book which ought to be spanked soundly and sent to bed without any supper. Except that, if you did that, you would be missing out on a delightful, entertaining smorgasbord of advice, insights, red herrings and jokes that together make up a classic text for business leaders."
Business Voice

Director 2005

‘a fun read …A tasty smorgasbord of writings on strategy’


Guardian, 2005  

‘a mine full of nuggets’


The Edge, 2005 

‘If you think strategy is boring and best avoided, think again. Strategy Bites Back will not only change your view on strategy, it will inspire and challenge you too…..The authors offer some excellent insights……This true gem of a book should sit proudly on any strategist’s bookshelf.’
