In My Own Words:
I run a management consultancy which occupies much of my time. I also have a book here on Amazon: 'Stop Saving the NHS and Start Reinventing it'.

I read a lot, mostly non-fiction and mainly management, classical history and nature; though I also enjoy the odd SciFi or fantasy novel. I keep fit, enjoy films and listen to 70s Progressive Rock music, as well as Chopin, Beethoven and Schubert.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective, 15 July 2013
I have been using this for about a month and it has made a big difference. I have suffered from sinusitis for many years and regularly use steroidal sprays - which are partly effective. I dilute this with some water in a neti pot and use it twice a day.

Also, the book can come over as a pile of bricks at times, with the mortar to bring it together less easy to find - though Kate does give useful examples throughout.

That said, this is a very practical book that could be used to set up an internet business and to run it economically from your local coffee shop, if you like. The strongest sections are at the front of the book and are enough to help a… Read more
The Music of Business: Business Excellence fused w&hellip by Peter Cook
5.0 out of 5 stars His Own Metaphor, 27 April 2013
Peter has made the music and business analogy his own, in this book and on his blog. Using metaphors and analogies can produce some perceptive insights--but requires some hard thought and a creative mind. Peter has thought hard and packed them into this excellent book. Do AC/DC stick to the knitting and play what their fans like? What can we learn from Peter Grant's management of Led Zeppelin? Seek the answers within. A readable, insightful and useful book.
