Review:

'I love this book...it is novel, punchy and extremely well written. It takes the pomposity out of strategic management, showing that strategy is everywhere and can really help with the complicated jargon. A great read, buy it!' -
Cary L. Cooper, Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health
Lancaster University Management School
