Witty, authorative, comprehensive, informative and fun.
How to Get Ahead in Business is the utlimate distillation of business knowledge.
Selected by Professor Tom Cannon, former Director of the Manchester Business School, here in one wide-ranging collection are the sharpest insights, the finest writing and the freshest thinking from the world of business. The wisdom of classic texts; the most up-to-date views; humour and inspiration — How to Get Ahead in Business has it all.
From Machiavelli to Peter Drucker, Tom Peters and Charles Handy; from Sun Tzu to Lee Iacocca, Richard Branson and Anita Roddick; and from Samuel Smiles to Michael Porter, Mark McCormack and John Harvey-Jones, here is the definitive reader for every businessman, entrepreneur or student of business.
Pretty funny to read, but no substance.
Of course, if you want the fast and easy way to learn what lot of management writers/thinkers have said, this could have a point.
Leaves me untouched.
