This book is a clarion call to action for all current and aspiring business leaders who wish to see their tombstone being etched with something more than "he delivered a long period of sustained profit growth". Professor de Woot is an intellectual giant whose writings offer a new vision of leadership in a time when such vision is rare and yet desperately needed. --Mark Drewell, CEO, Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative
Our economic model, the worldwide liberal open economy, has been showing significant weaknesses. Even though many of us, Christian businessmen, believe it is, like democracy, the worst of all systems except all the others, we cannot be satisfied by that answer. At a time where the American Christian right is promoting extreme ideas, and the European Christian left cannot find better than a failed welfare state, Philippe de Woot's provocative thinking is a useful wake-up call. --Bertrand Collomb, Former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Lafarge
