'Required reading for anyone in involved in business and management' The Independent

From the Back Cover:

HOW DO YOU GALVANISE A COMPANY SO THAT FROM TOP TO BOTTOM IT IS GEARED FOR SUCCESS? HOW, IN A WORD, DO YOU 'LEAD'?

Sir John Harvey-Jones is one of the best-known and most admired industrialists in the world, and his achievements at ICI are legendary. But how did he achieve this success? How was that giant company salvaged from its disastrous slump and transformed into one of the world’s best-run companies?

Reflecting on his years as chairman of ICI, and on his experiences of leadership in the Royal Navy, Harvey-Jones offers a wealth of knowledge and common-sense advice on all aspects of business life and management. In particular, he demonstrates how it is possible to run a company with time and respect for everyone involved, and how this enables a company to excel.

For readers accustomed to the pat solutions and manipulate techniques of so many management books, his ideas represent a radical and refreshing business philosophy – and one with a proven track record.
