I read an article by Sir Clive Woodward and he recommended this book, along with others, as one managers should read. I'm usually sceptical on recommendations, especially those with an American slant. However, its spot on. If only all managers would take a few leaf's out of this book and apply it in their daily routine/workplace, it would make working life much better. The book is well structured, easy on the eye, provides excellent examples. Simple and effective concepts that can be easily applied to any size of company. Any Manager/Executive should make this a number one priority in their reading list to help them improve themselves, their people and their company to be great!
