a fun and breezy read (PeopleManagement, April 2014) His book is a refreshing antidote to the blandness ofso many how I made it big business books. In it, hecommends a very different style of leadership to the usual,preferring instinct, quirkiness and chance-taking over the usualmanagement-speak. (IDG Connect, April 2014) A wonderful read. Not for thefaint-hearted. (Dialogue, June 2014) well worth reading as it will challenge your'norms' and make you think about how you really can get the bestout of your people. (CMI Book Club, July 2014)
