LATEST REVIEWS OF THE ALCHEMY OF GROWTH
THE INDEPENDENT (Book of the Week): "In throwing light on the mechanics of growth, the book is likely to prove highly valuable."
BUSINESS AGE: " The book's authors take a hard look at the roots of company growth: what causes it and how it can be encouraged. The three have put together a book that makes facinating reading."
SUNDAY BUSINESS POST: "I would recommend this book to top management and their professional advisers in medium to large sized organisations. It's certainly an inexpensive introduction to many useful ideas from one of the world's leading management consultancies."
DIRECTOR: "Only one in 10 companies that exceeds its industry average for growth in any year is able to repeat that performance every year for a decade. Yet it can be done. Three Mckinsey specialists reveal the secret formula needed to turn good ideas into gold."
FINANCIAL TIMES: "The simplicity of the idea is its very strength."
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH: "Its principles grab you immediately - but this is not a weighty tome on management theory...[For investors] this book will help you identify genuine growth companies and think for yourself."
ASIAN BUSINESS: "Companies need to cut costs and rationalise their businesses. But changes must be made with growth in mind if firms want to survive."
