Top customer reviews
Firstly the written style. It's an easy read - the tone is that of a friendly conversation, peppered with facts and examples. Its not preachy or 'sensationalist' and ulitmately a positive message rather than a fire and brimstone some approach environmentalist can adopt.
In terms of content, points are backed up by good evidence - either science, history or real life examples.
If you are a senior manager or want to get into management, this book will serve you well as the issues within it become even more crucial.
