Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger (Berkshire Hathaway)
Bill and Melinda Gates (The Gates Foundation)
Brian Grazer and Ron Howard (Imagine Entertainment)
Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti (Valentino)

Arthur Blank and Bernie Marcus (The Home Depot)
Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken (restaurateurs)
Joe Torre and Don Zimmer (New York Yankees)

This is a timely book with the overarching theme of trust. Eisner points out that fundamental to all successful relationships, personal and business, is trust. Told through the stories of some of the most successful business and philanthropic partnerships; Eisner & Wells, Buffett & Munger, Bill & Melinda Gates, the book examines why working together can be much more constructive than working alone. Whilst Eisner ultimately concludes that you still need a leader, someone accountable for decisions at the very highest level, forming partnerships with people who offer complimentary skills can strengthen leaders.

In the conclusion Eisner cites a renowned Harvard study into happiness, which found that the common thread of those who had sustained happiness in their lives was not wealth and power, but rather successful long-term relationships with other people. Whilst it is easy to fall into the trappings of idealistic hero-worship with visionary leaders (a theme pushed by the media), most successful business executives will tell you that they couldn’t have got to the top alone. Working together encourages teamwork, accountability and respect, which in Eisner’s findings at least, can lead to sustained happiness when successfully implemented.
