  1. Excellent. A must read.

  2. An excellent, thought-provoking book I have recommended to many others.

  3. A long-needed reassessment of mangagement and management training practices and attituides.

  4. An important book that resonates on a daily basis as we see the impact of our unhealthy ‘winner takes all’ culture. Definitely time for a different approach as Cath Bishop cleverly articulates in this brilliantly written book.
