Management professor Fombrun beckons us inside many of the most admired companies in the U.S. to scrutinize the workings of the most intangible asset of all: corporate reputation. Much of what he says has appeared in highly specialized publications; in fact, his book represents the most recent popularized version of this topic--and one that is easy to read and understand. A second part focuses on specific industries--fashion, financial services, MBA schools, and specific companies--all to drive home points made in the first part. Barbara Jacobs
