There is a very strong body of analysis that shows that the thinking about shareholder value and ownership is screwing up the modern economy. Clearly, shareholders have important rights and good shareholders deserve good returns. The problem is when the theory gets loaded with ideology and the ideology is actually antibusiness and bad for the economy. This is an important book because it provides a rigorous legal foundation freeing up the mind and in this new space and understanding of what is appropriate begins to emerge.

Informative, insightful and compelling logic - this book should be a 'must read' on all business and management curricula; easily accessible to the lay-person, too
