A critical treatise which predicts life and business in the 1990s, this volume argues that in order to profit more from business in the late 20th century readers must overturn traditional ideas of education, career and management. It also conveys a vision of new discoveries and freedoms. Charles Handy also wrote "Gods of Management", "Taking Stock", "The Future of Work" and "Understanding Organisations".
