Customer Review

on November 23, 2008
The three essays in this book should be read by everyone in a leadership or managererial role. THe authors point out ways to create culture's of candor - open, honest, and forthright organizations - something that has been getting more rare as time goes on. Personally I believe that this book should be on the required reading list for eah and every member of the new Obama Administration.

I especially liked the quote from Francis Bacon: "If a man will begin with certainties, he will end in doubts, but if he will be content to begin in doubts, he will end in certainties." and the one from Martin Luther King Jr.: "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." Both of these appear in the second essay on speaking truth to power and it is in this area that I believe the most work is needed. Far too many folks in power believe that they have the answers and won't accept any others. If they read this they might see the error of thier ways.
