David d'Souza's smart curation of some clever HR thinkers and practitioners is as diverse as you'd expect and surprising in ways that you might not have. There are some pieces you will disagree with- purposefully so-some will enrage, some will break you out of your corporate topor. All have something to offer. As a snap shot of a profession in rude health, it's a very good stopping off point and worth dipping into. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humanely executed 11 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Highly recommended. A simple but excellent little book. Interpersonal relations are the cornerstones of both joy and misery for a happy and successful business. Using blogs works well and proves an excellently democratic idea. The editing was the key.

5.0 out of 5 stars All this value and all for charity... 27 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a brilliant collection of short articles from a world-wide group of HR thought leaders, activists and people who are just passionate about what they do.
A great book that you can pick up and dip into as the mood takes you. It's true what one reviewer said - this book isn't going to give you any clear and prescriptive ideas and tools that will revolutionise what you do. But it will spark your thinking. You can read, reflect make your own meaning from the content and then go and start making your own small changes to HR, to business and to those around you.
