Top Customer Reviews
Johnson's writing is superb. Mercifully free of claptrap jargon, pseudo-science, and all that motivational bunkum you get. He writes simply, is refreshingly opinionated, and backs up his opinions with evidence. The book's so good that it should be made required reading on every business course in the country. No chance of that, of course! The people who teach business courses prefer arcane and useless theory to practical reality.
If you want something amusing, insightful and informative to read on holiday this year, this hits the spot. I'd rate it as one of the best - and certainly the most enjoyable - business books I've read in the last 3 years.
