Editorial Reviews

Review

"Townsend shouldn't just be read, he should be memorized." ?Tom Peters "The sagest (and even most outrageous) book ever written about how business should be run." ?Harper?s Magazine "Bob Townsend's words still ring true, truer than they seemed almost 40 years ago." ?Warren Bennis "Robert Townsend's book continues to light up the business world with straightforward and practical management advice that is as pertinent today as when originally published. A must-read for all managers!" ?Ray Davis, president and CEO, Umpqua Holdings Corporation "Townsend proves that the best business wisdom is timeless. In an era filled with business buzzwords and ethical misdirections, Townsend's bluntness makes for refreshing and hilarious reading for the next crop of CEOs." ?Ben Casnocha, chairman, Comcate, Inc., author, My Start-Up Life
