(HR, August 2012) ' Offers and innovative and thought provoking interpretation of a well-established theme.' (Engineering & Technology Magazine, September 2012) 'The book's ideas are clearly expressed and greatly enhanced by numerous examples and anecdotes drawn from the authors' experiences.' (Times Higher Education Supplement, August 30th 2012) 'An unusual take on leadership that works well.' (Management Today, October 2012) '...full of well-presented, readable and useful material' (Professional Manager, November 2012)
