“As a business school professor and former college President and corporate executive, I picked up the book with anticipation and enjoyed it immensely. My ultimate book review is what I did after reading it. I immediately sent it to my daughter (a 37 year old corporate executive) as some of the most useful work advice I have come across in years. She couldn’t put it down!"
